UNBOX CON 2022 introduces NFT event tickets, other digital innovations


UNBOX CON, a new collectibles convention bringing together sneakerheads, toy enthusiasts, and card collectors, is introducing new digital innovations to elevate the experience of attendees and exhibitors.  

Digital QR Tickets in Partnership with Lazada

Event attendees will no longer need to purchase physical tickets over the counter nor line up for hours just to buy tickets at the venue. They can effortlessly buy Silver or Gold tickets to the event via Lazada. Once bought, the tickets will be stored in the Lazada app of the customer in the form of a QR Code. In the event venue itself, the entrance team will just scan the QR code on the app of the attendee for quick and painless access.

Empowering Exhibitors to Sell Online

UNBOX CON has also partnered with Lazada to equip and enable their exhibitors/merchants to sell online so that they can still serve those who can't attend the convention on the actual event day. Lazada will conduct an e-commerce masterclass training for exhibitors and help onboard them to their platform. Exclusive deals will be available on the online shops of participating merchants while the event is on-going. 

Collectible NFT Tickets for VIP Access

UNBOX CON is introducing a country-first for collectible conventions with their new collectible NFT VIP Tickets. Customers can mint the NFT on OpenSea on May 14. There are only 300 tickets available and the ticket will provide a variety of perks such as:
1 Hour Early Access to Unbox CON so they can purchase event-exclusive drops ahead of everyone else.
Access to the VIP Event Lounge with free food and drinks.
Limited Edition Shirt and Tactical Tote Bag designed by Technical Design Firm SNK ATK.
Perks for succeeding Unbox CON events in the future.

The NFT was exclusively designed for Unbox CON by Psalm Alfafara, Creative Director of SNK ATK.
