This company’s smartcards let tourists access attractions from encounters with dolphins in Hawaii to historical tours of Rome. It also builds software for tourist boards to manage their own smartcard systems. In 2016, private equity firm Exponent bought the business for an undisclosed sum. The following year, it merged its US portfolio company Smart Destinations and acquired the New York Pass. This boosted overseas sales to an annualised £207.9m in 2017, under chief executive Ted Stimpson, 52.
