On October 3rd- 6th, the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall is transformed into a sea of MOCs and AFOLs for BrickCon!
This was the event’s 18th con, with around 500 registered AFOLs in attendance. It was my first time attending, and I was accompanied by four other LEGO employees who flew out from Denmark: Lise Henriksen, head of PMD Integration, Bodgam Ghersim and Nicolai Mendgaard-Johannsen who work on Lead User Lab, and Astrid Mueller from the LEGO House.
It was an incredible opportunity to meet ambassadors and AFOLs in person, and of course, check out their displays...
They were mind-blowing, as you'd expect!
The displays have even attracted local celebrities have come to the event in past years: Al Pacino, Jeff Bezos, and Chrissy Teigen. Unfortunately, none showed up when I was there.
Jason Allemann was the special guest Keynote Speaker Saturday night. You might know Jason as JKBrickworks and the LEGO fan designer of no less than TWO LEGO Ideas products, LEGO Ideas 21305 Maze and LEGO Ideas 21315 Pop-up Book.
Despite being in a city known for rain, I was fortunate enough not to get rained on during my time in Seattle.
Thanks for the good times BrickCon!
