Registration is now open for BrickCon 2023, which has moved from its previous location and time at the Seattle Center during the first weekend of October to the Meydenbauer Center at Bellevue, Washington on September 7-10. Public viewing days are September 9-10. BrickCon is the longest running LEGO fan exhibition in the US, with this year being the 22nd convention!
The main reason for the move was growth – ”Our location near the Space Needle has been our home for decades, but we have outgrown the space, and we really needed a new place,” said Steve Walker, executive director of BrickCon. “We have a lot of good memories there, but with this change, BrickCon has the room it needs, and room to grow as well.”
Steve continues, “We’re eager to see what this new space can do. There will be more space for the exhibits, vendors and the public. All that amounts to a more comfortable experience for everyone.”
The theme for BrickCon 20023 is Journeys, inspired by the move to Bellevue. Steve notes, ”This will be a new experience for the AFOLS, with different hotels, restaurants, shops and close proximity to a LEGO store. The community has been very welcoming to us, and it should be a blast.”
The countdown is on, and with the new location and dates, BrickCon is set to begin a new journey – one that AFOLs and public can both be a part of. Register at brickcon.org and be part of this new adventure!
