Fabrikus World: the largest fixed fairground in France
Formerly known as Europark, Fabrikus World is the largest fixed fairground in France, located in Vias Plage, counting over 80 attractions on 17.3 acres of park and nearly a million visitors. Its new owners, the Brunet family, showmen at the park for 25 years, have delegated the digital transformation of the park to the European subsidiary of Connect&GO, including the online ticketing platform, physical ticket offices, secure access control, and cashless payment with the launch of its own currency: Fabcoin available on chip cards and much more.
“The moment the Brunet family introduced us to the Fabrikus project, we fell in love with it. Today we are proud to deploy our virtual portfolio platform, Konnect, in the largest fixed fairground in France. It will become our European showcase and accelerate the development of our subsidiary in France where we plan to make several investments and hires in the years to come” says Dominic Gagnon, president of Connect&GO.
Interzip Rogers: the world’s first interprovincial zipline.
Interzip Rogers is the world’s first interprovincial zipline. It offers the incomparable bird’s-eye view crossing experience over the Ottawa River between Ontario and Quebec. Wishing to offer the best technology available, the promoter of Interzip, Orkestra, selected Connect&GO for its omnichannel ticketing platform including its discharge signature management module as well as its memories platform. Indeed, participants are invited to acquire the unforgettable souvenir video of their zipline course, as soon as their ticket is purchased, generating significant income for the promoter.
“The ease of use of the Konnect platform allows us to focus on our operations and marketing since the early opening of the interprovincial zipline. The interface is easy to understand and the customer journey is just as easy, contributing to a very high level of customer satisfaction since our launch” said Emilie Séguin, Director of Interzip Rogers.
