This group’s multi-attraction smartcards are used by tourists in European and American cities, including London, Paris and New York. It also builds customised software for city tourist boards to manage their own smartcard systems. In 2016 Exponent bought Leisure Pass Group (LPG) from Primary Capital Partners for an undisclosed sum and the following year merged it with two US companies, Smart Destinations and the New York Pass. The deal made LPG the world’s largest attraction pass operator and boosted its sales, which represent the total value of cards sold, to an annualised £225.8m last year. In June LPG launched a partnership with the Shanghai-based booking platform Ctrip to capitalise on the growing number of Chinese tourists visiting Europe. Ted Stimpson, 51, is chief executive.
