2016 Keynote Speaker: Joe Meno

We are excited to have one of the great pillars of the AFOL Community, Mr. Joe Meno, as our Keynote Speaker for Brickworld Chicago 2016. Joe is the founder and editor in-chief of BrickJournal magazine. Joe has been a presence in the community forever. You can find him at many AFOL conventions running around snapping pictures of the MOCs. Joe has his hands in many things. And, while we aren’t announcing the topic of his speech, we can tell you that it is not about BrickJournal. Joe has thought long and hard about a topic to excite us all. Don’t miss out! The Keynote speech happens during opening ceremonies on Thursday, June 16th at Brickworld Chicago.

Joe was born in Fayetteville, NC.  He graduated from North Carolina State University in 1987.  And, he lives his life as a self-described “sorta-editor, writer, photographer for a magazine that is a lot more fun than work!”.  And, he believes in Walt Disney’s philosophy that “It’s kinda fun doing the impossible.”

Please join us in Chicago and don’t miss what is certain to be an unforgettable hour of Joe!
