Brickworld Chicago this weekend

Posted by ,

Brickworld Chicago is one of the largest LEGO conventions in the U.S., located at the Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. There will be over 100,000 square feet of exhibit space for MOCs and this year over 950 people have registered! The fun starts today for conference registrants. Wednesday - Saturday is geared toward registered attendees. If you haven't registered, you can still experience Brickworld Chicago: the MOCs are open to the public on Saturday and Sunday.

This is my first time attending Brickworld Chicago, and I'm looking forward to seeing all the fantastic MOCs and meeting fellow LEGO afficionados (and Bricksetters!) from around the country and beyond.

I'll be there tomorrow (Thursday) through Sunday, so if you're attending, please say hi. Let me know what you like about the site and what you'd like to see. I may have a Brickset memento to share if you do!

I'll be the only MeganL there with a Brickset brick on her name badge.

Hope to see you there!

Welcome to Chicago. We have a full weekend, but my family and I are going to try to make it there on Saturday.

I'll be there Friday and Saturday and I'll try to track you down. Any hints where you will be hanging out?

I was there two years ago, family had a good time. Won't be able to make it this year due to vacation travel to another part of the US.

I will be there starting today, part of the ChiLUG display. Would love to meet with another Bay Area person.

I’m going on Saturday and am very excited to see some of the awesome displays people have created. I’m pretty sure one of the upcoming Lego apps will have a demo there so that might be fun.

@ecmo47 - there are so many things to check out, I haven’t finalized my schedule yet. I’ll be attending some of the sessions, but your best bet is likely the exhibit hall earlier in the morning or later in the day. I’m quite disappointed I won’t get there in time for the FFOL event earlier in the day on Thursday.

Would love to meet other Brickset readers. I'll be there almost every day at the ChiLUG table premiering this build.

I would love to go but sadly can not! I will try to send my friend and his family down from Wisconsin.

Thanks for the post. I somehow missed the show dates this year. Hope we can get out there Sunday as a Father's Day treat!
