BrickVention 2011 - Registrations now open

Posted by ,

Australasia's premier AFOL event, BrickVention, is now open for Registration. If you haven’t already started planning your trip, now is a good time. The organisers have informed me that if you wish to register for a T-shirt and brick badge, your registration needs to be in before the 14th of December 2010.

Unlike previous events, Brickvention 2011 will be held in the Melbourne Town Hall due to the enormous crowds at last year's event.

From the Brickvention website:

  • What is Brickvention?
    Brickvention is the premier convention event for the Australian LEGO® Community.
    Brickvention is a two day event for AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO®). Like other conventions, it offers workshops, presentations, special events and challenges.
    Guest keynote speaker at the Saturday convention will be Jim Foulds from the LEGO Community Team.
  • When?
    Saturday the 15th and Sunday 16th January 2011.
    The Saturday is for registered attendees and is aimed at Adult fans of LEGO®. Sunday is the Public Day where everyone is welcome. Saturday the 15th includes sessions intended for AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO®) 18 years of age or older. Younger convention attendees are welcome to come with a registered adult, but keep in mind many of the activities outside of the Public Expo are targeted toward adults.

Only one thing wrong with this, is the date. Middle of the year would be a better time.
