A ticket can consist of a document provided by The Con Factory. This can be an e-ticket that has to be handed in at the registration in combination with presenting a valid photo identification, which gives the right to the actual entry ticket.
The ticket will be registered on name and is not transmittable, unless communicated differently in writing by The Con Factory. The ticket will be provided once and gives entry to one person.
Tickets are and will stay property of The Con Factory. The ticket gives the holder the right at assisting at the event and eventual extra activities as stated on the ticket, when this is applicable.
