A Truly Global Presence
Australia & Asia Pacific
The legacy of innovation started in 1958, when Malcolm Steinberg founded Leisure & Allied Industries (LAI) in Perth, Western Australia. LAI Group was an early pioneer of the Family Entertainment Centre (FEC) concept, founding the Timezone brand of FECs in 1978.
With over 200 locations, Timezone is the leading FEC operator across Oceania today.
LAI expanded into additional services: offering a cashless business management system that became Embed; a full range of amusement machines that became LAI Games. And, in 2013, The Locker Network began offering the best-in-class Compusafe™ electronic storage solutions to entertainment operators globally.
In 2014, Helix Leisure was created, merging Embed, LAI Games, The Locker Network, and the Matahari Leisure JV into a single operating company.
Helix Leisure’s acquisition of Booking Boss in 2017 solidified its technology backbone across its entire enterprise, extending into Saas (software as a solution) cloud-based business solutions that integrate and manage every aspect of the FECs and Attractions business.
