Hi everyone! I’m Stine and I’m an intern with the AFOL Engagement team and will be here until end of December 2019. My internship is part of my master's degree in Corporate Communication, and I’m so happy to be here working with you guys.
Fan Weekend 2019 was my very first LEGO Fan event and it was such a fun experience. I had a great time meeting so many of you and seeing your amazing creations. Thank you for welcoming me into your community!
Around 1000 AFOLs were gathered to celebrate the creativity and joy of the LEGO brick. Over 400 of you shared your displays with the 2600 visitors. This year, representatives from 99 fan groups from 35 countries across the globe met up and made Fan Weekend the most international AFOL event in the world. I hope you enjoyed your time here. We also had some other LEGO colleagues stop by such as Vig Knudstorp, Line La from LEGO World and a bunch of LEGO designers – Jamie Berard, Imagine Rigney and Chris McVeigh and Stuart Harris from LEGO House.
I spent most of my time checking out the MOCs and meeting some great people, so sadly I didn’t have time to attend any of the workshops that were going on. For example, the Lead User Lab team had a workshop on Saturday. What was your highlight of SFW?
Of course, we also owe a huge thank you to the team behind Fan Weekend for all their hard work in making the weekend come together and succeed – it would never have happened without all of you.
If you want to be part of Fan Weekend next year, then be sure to mark your calendars on September 26th-27th 2020. I’m sure it will be another great weekend!
How many of the people in this picture can you name?
A nice group shot of everyone who participated in the LAN meeting Friday evening - thank you for coming!
