Convention Rules & Policies


All registrants will receive a printed badge when they check in at the event. Please wear your badge at all times (The engraved brick badges are not the accepted form of identification for entrance into Brickworld). Your printed badge is your entrance pass to Brickworld, including seminars and workshops, so do not lose it! We cannot replace lost badges.

If you find a lost badge or parts of a badge, please take them to the registration desk.

Please help ensure your child adheres to the rules of the event. Please be respectful to other attendees by taking crying or disruptive children outside of the event.

Remember, this is an adult-oriented event, and some conversations may be inappropriate for your children. It is your responsibility to remove your child(ren) from inappropriate scenarios. And, we also ask that all minors be out of the event hall between midnight and 7 AM
