The world’s first global Metal and Rock fan convention, HeavyCon, comes to London with The Ticket Factory as exclusive ticket agent.

The Ticket Factory has signed an exclusive deal with HeavyCon Ltd meaning it will be the only ticket agent for the first global fan driven metal and rock show.

HeavyCon will make its debut at London’s ExCeL over a three day period between September 30 and October 2 2016, with music legend Gene Simmons, of Kiss also making an exclusive appearance.

Simmons, one of the founding members of Kiss, who have sold over 100 million records, making them the world’s biggest selling bands of all time, will be signing autographs for gold ticket holders.

As the only rock and metal convention of its kind, HeavyCon will bring experiences that connect fans with the music they love through musicians Q & A’s, meet and greets, artists workshops, exclusive film screenings and rare and exclusive memorabilia and merchandise from 150 rock and metal stalls.

Sarah Whittaker, General Manager for Sales Operations said “The Ticket Factory is delighted to be the exclusive agent for HeavyCon. HeavyCon offers a unique opportunity for fans of rock and metal to immerse themselves in the world they love at the first ever show of its kind. Working with HeavyCon Ltd, we’ve built a customised, online journey which is simple and straightforward, built around the show’s three main ticket types including membership to Team Rock media.”

Clive Nørgaard Morton, Director of HeavyCon Ltd said: “It was a really simple decision to work with The Ticket Factory.

“We were impressed with how passionate the team were about optimising the customer’s ticket purchasing journey, and also their customer service. It was important for us to choose a ticketing partner which could deliver all the functionality we needed whilst keeping the HeavyCon brand at the forefront.

“Their continued investment into ticketing technology is impressive and we are looking forward to seeing how this can translate to strong ticket sales in our first ever London Show."
