North Queensland Stadium
The new venue was looking for the latest access systems to be aligned with the technology in use by Ticketmaster, partner and ticket provider of the venue. For the first time in Australia, SKIDATA has installed Flex.Gate User Boxes on Gunnebo turnstiles, as requested by the customer. The connection to the ticketing system from Ticketmaster was a standard process via the existing interfaces.
The three teams worked together for design, installation and commissioning of the system with very successful results. SKIDATA's Handshake platform communicates with Ticketmaster for ticket information and reporting. The opening night with Elton John was a great success and the audience of 20,000 people entered the venue smoothly and with no issues thanks to the reliable and fast Handshake.Logic software.
The stadium is the new venue of sporting and entertaining events in North Queensland and is also home to the famous North Queensland Cowboys NRL Team. The Stadium is a joint project of the Queensland Government, Australian Government and Townsville City Council and is supported by the National Rugby League (NRL) and North Queensland Cowboys.
