AFOLCON: 2 months to go!

Posted by ,

AFOLCON, which promises to be the biggest and best LEGO show the UK has ever seen, is now just 2 months away! The organisers of the show have today published details of the speakers and sessions that will be taking place during the conference days:

"The conference will include not one, but two LEGO designers who are coming over from Billund. Tim Ainley and Mark Stafford will be talking about the development of Ninjago and another new line that will be released later in 2011 (but the sets should be at the show!). In addition, Carl Greatrix will explain how the process of creating models for the LEGO video games differs from the process LEGO uses, or that you might do at home.

"Duncan Titmarsh, the UK's first LEGO Certified Professional will be explaining how he joined the program and what it's like to make money from building LEGO! Finally, David Gauntlett, from the University of Westminster, will be talking about how he worked with LEGO Serious Play."

The event is taking place in Manchester on 28th April to 2nd May. You can find out more, and book your place at the official website, AFOLCON.com, and read more about the speakers and sessions here.

I hope to see you all there!
