Did anyone ever ask LoQ if Disney have had to licence any of LoQ's tech to make their own bits work ?

baxter - no, Disney like to spend vast amounts and develop their technology in-house. Just thought I'd post it as it shows what the competition is up to, and highlights what LOQ and its clients already know - that taking guests out of queues to allow them to roam the park and spend their money is a win:win for park operators and guests alike.

Disney Says Wristband Boosts Sales in Disney World Test July 12 (Bloomberg) -- Electronic wristbands tested at Walt Disney Co.'s Florida resort succeeded in boosting spending by guests, parks division Chairman Thomas Staggs said. The bands serve as admission tickets, hotel room keys and credit cards. They were tested by 1,000 people at Walt Disney World in Florida, Staggs said in an interview at Allen & Co.'s annual conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, without offering details. Guests spent more on average in part because they had fun with the technology, he said. Disney, the world's largest theme-park operator, plans additional trials of the technology, called MyMagic+, before expanding throughout Walt Disney World by year-end, Staggs said. The wristbands help with crowd control, reducing the time guest spend in lines by allowing them to book rides and restaurants in advance. They can also schedule special meet-and-greets with characters like Goofy. "We're still in test mode," Staggs said. "It takes some time to get it all rolled out." The wristbands link to a customer database, allowing guests to purchase items in Disney World's hotels, four theme parks and water parks by waving the devices past a sensor. The radio technology speeds transactions, helping customers make their trips more efficient. Disney will also use MyMagic+ to offer special promotions and activities that may interest customers. MyMagic+ builds on Disney's current Fast Pass program, which allows guests to schedule attractions during one-hour windows, once they are already in the park. "It allows them to have a prearranged schedule before they start their day so it's actually an enhanced Fast Pass," Staggs said. "Fast Pass is getting better." Disney, based in Burbank, California, added 2.6 percent to $66.58 yesterday in New York. The shares have advanced 34 percent this year, double the 17 percent gain for the Standard & Poor's 500 Index. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-07-11/disney-says-wristband-boosts-sales-in-disney-world-test.html

montyhedge - did you keep yours? montyhedge 4 Nov'06 - 10:04 - 22 of 10502 0 0 When other investors latch on to this further share price movement is assured, not many investors know about Lo-Q glad we do. Start of a new era, were these place at 106 on the aim market, this is the time they should have been placed on aim now at 106p. So 27p seems a bargain.

Yes...I am rather pleased that we have a large number of waterparks now as they will be getting very good business in this heat. It could do with being a few degrees lower I suspect for optimum theme park conditions.

Hi Riv, Hope you are right re conversion of good weather into bumper crowds and optimum Q-Bot users. However, is there such a thing as weather that is too hot for theme park crowds - it's been as high as 45 degrees in Los Angeles recently, with scorching temperatures all the way down to Texas too...

Good weather in the UK and a heatwave in the USA too from what I heard, so this summer's park attendances - and therefore Q-Bot sales - should be off to a dceent start. The strength of the dollar against the pound should help LOQ nicely too relative to last year.

More grist to the mill: 2012 Park Attendance Report - (6/5/13) The 2012 TEA / AECOM Global Attractions Attendance Report has been released and can be downloaded in PDF form here. Most of the numbers are as you would expect to see from the major players, with Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom topping the North American market with over 17.5 million guests, up 2.3%. The big mover this year was Disney's California Adventure which opened Cars Land in 2012 and saw park attendance rise by 22.6% to hit an all time high of 7.775 million! Meanwhile nearby Universal Studios Hollywood also wowed the same local market by opening Transformers: The Ride 3-D and saw attendance at the Hollywood park soar 15% to 5.9 million. spud

Cheers - good to see LOQ getting such wide exposure. TB certainly knows how to grab people's attention :o)) "'If we capitalise on the opportunity that the technology, mobile and smartphone revolution is bringing our sector, then I think the opportunity exists to create a really very significant business – worth many hundreds of millions of pounds,' Burnet continued. 'I genuinely think we've just started getting going.'

I suspect Sandersons will be at the Singapore show in any event but the LOQ team just adding the strength to the story and being available for other detailed discussions whilst in the region etc.

what was interesting was how many times, and how long he enthused about the accesso management team. Not a lot said about the LOQ team by comparison. If ever succession planning was being carried out then it was very plain who the next man would be. Sandersons had very little said about them in the presentation or the interim results. It is only a 1 year initial contract and I forgot to ask whether it would carry on as a JV or whether LOQ would go alone as the only parks Sandersons have got LOQ into so far are both in USA (!). Also interesting that LOQ and Accesso are going to a big trade show in Singapore shortly. No mention of Sandersons (who you would think would be the obvious choice).

Yes, the way the two Poles were hugging after the match had me wondering whether we might see lots of little Q-Bots.

It's a shame this Polish guy has just been knocked out of Wimbledon - perhaps LOQ could sponsor him next year? :-) GAME, SET AND MATCH - Janowicz 7-5 6-4 6-4 Kubot Jerzy Janowicz becomes Poland's first male Grand Slam semi-finalist after beating compatriot Lukasz Kubot. The 24th seed falls to the floor and sheds a tear or two.

Let's not also forget that Tom is personally rewarded re share price, the first target was £5 = Achieved. The second is £10 which he feels is achieve able within 18 months. I personally feel that it will be achieved by March '14.spud

I totally agree with Martin. Those who are long term holders will appreciate this is a long ride and just like the theme parks there will be roller coaster movements when so much is being built into the future. It is clear that we may see another acquisition at some point this year and a much larger business servicing the entertainment and leisure sector across the world is being built from within LOQ. Tom and now SB in the US are very heavily supported by institutions with big names on the register. Whether the share price in £5 or £7 today does not interest them and the stock split will not create additional liquidity if there are simply no sellers because everyone is holding for the future. I have been here nearly ten years and personally feel more comfortable and at the same time enthusiastic for the future than at any time before. Short term price movements on very low volumes are immaterial to me but I can understand TB being keen to see a strong share price if he is considering a paper deal and the vendor wants to see the LOQ currency as fairly stable too. I think the Sanderson deals are starting to come through now....theme parks are slow to change their habits but that does mean recurring revenues once you are in will be greater too...stickiness with repeat business is a good combo at LOQ.

Yes, thank you David and Tom for setting this up. My personal view on a couple of peripheral points that were raised. - Stock splits are something which raise money for hangers on, such as NOMADs, but do nothing for shareholders, so I cannot see any point in that - Whilst it has increased volatility in the short term, the new dealing arrangements are completely irrelevant to LOQ's short-term and long-term prospects. As Benjamin Graham identified, in the short term the market is a voting machine but in the long-term it is a weighing machine. So LOQ need to focus all their attention on building the business, not get distracted by whether some small trade has moved the share price by a few percent. Best wishes, Martin

Cheers David, much appreciated. I had to leave after an hour, but it seems that LOQ's prospects are as good and TB as enthusiastic as ever. It was particularly good to hear TB enthuse about just how good the accesso acquisition has been, since this was obviously a slightly more risky step into the unknown for LOQ. The accesso management appear to have sharpened up LOQ's own operations and surpassed all expectations. As Spud says, the share price/market cap targets mentioned are rather enticing! The high level of institutional support indicates that these targets may well be possible/likely assuning LOQ's performing to expectations and innovating into the sort of new markets mentioned.
