The Bleep EPOS system is being installed from May onwards in the official merchandise stores in Rio and three other cities in Brazil, covering 80 sites, across 37 venues.

The stores will be selling a range of products and merchandise to visitors from across the globe, such as cuddly versions of the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralymipic mascots Vinicius and Tom, pin badges, mugs, magnets, towels, shirts, caps and more.

Bleep secured the contract on the back of the success it had at the London 2012 Olympic Games, as well as after supplying a number of world class events and stadia over the past four years, including the FIFA 2014 World Cup, the Open Championship, the Rugby World Cup 2015 and UEFA EURO 2016 later this summer.

John Wellman, chairman of Bleep UK, said: “Supplying our second consecutive Olympic Games is a dream come true for Bleep UK. It is a great honour to supply this global event on the back of our success in London four years ago. "The fact that we have been asked to supply an event of this magnitude over 5,000 miles away speaks volumes about what we have achieved in the events and stadia industries in recent years. We pride ourselves on supplying the gold standard of EPOS systems and look forward to contributing to the success of another Olympic Games.”
