In this blog post I’m looking back to only 2 weeks ago when the world was a slightly different and where I had the opportunity to be a participant at a recognised AFOL Networking Event: Bricks Cascade in Portland Oregon, USA (29. Feb. – 1. Mar. 2020)
First of all I want to thank @Bob Day Brickscascade and the team for such a brilliant event. There was a great mix of workshops (ex. Women’s Brick Initiatives), games (speed builds etc.), meetups (ex. LAN ambassador meeting, WAFOLs and GAYFOLs meetup) as well as celebrity attendance from "LEGO Masters" Participants🤩.
I’m grateful that the organizing team arranged a Q&A session where I had the opportunity to answer questions from the visitors. I got questions around sustainability (packaging and elements), wishes for new products/ product lines, questions around the new Train wheels, future product releases (🙊which I cannot comment on😁) and of course a couple of questions around monorail (no comments 🤪).
What made this event particularly awesome was the people there – thanks to everyone who came to me while I was walking around the exhibition, for sharing you input and creativity with me. Also, a huge THANK YOU to the community ambassadors I met at the event. Thank you for sharing feedback, for the insights to the communities you’re representing and for sharing your thoughts with me – LAN Ambassadors are doing an incredible job!
