Merlin magic is ticket to growth

Have your say

Ticketing and event specialist Merlin Software has landed a contract worth up to £150,000 to support the new National Museum of Oman.

It is the first major international project for the Barnsley company which counts several top UK attractions among its clients.

The museum, funded by the Sultan of Oman, will bring to life the country’s history with more than 7,000 objects on display.

It is due to open in November and Merlin’s team is working closely with Acciona Producciones y Diseño, the Spanish company designing the attraction.

Owen Gleadall, managing director of Merlin Software, said: “We decided last year to target international contracts and secured the first one we tendered for.

“The National Museum of Oman is a stunning development.

“I visited last month and members of our team will be deployed in October to carry out the installation. I am confident we can build on this success and increase our overseas work.”

Merlin was founded in 1984.
