Important Notes

  • 2018 convention registration is now open
Brickworld Chicago (our convention in Schaumburg, IL) begins on Wednesday the week of the event. Wednesday through Friday are devoted to registered attendees with Friday holding more younger attendee activities. During the day and evening of Wednesday through Friday, AFOLs have lots of time for bonding, sharing and set up of displays. During the day Thursday and Friday, there are workshops, presentations and round table discussions provided by fellow AFOLs and other community partners. These sessions are designed to give registered attendees the opportunity to share with each other, learn from each other, discover new aspects of the hobby, and explore the various creations fellow AFOLs have on display. There are opportunities to:

  • Build creations on site
  • Participate in contests and games
  • Hang out with friends
  • Learn more about the hobby
  • Have fun in many ways

The convention schedule will show the specific, planned activities and will be posted as Brickworld approaches. Generally speaking, there is a mixer on Wednesday evening, opening ceremonies are Thursday evening, workshops, presentations & set drafts are on Thursday and Friday, and set up the display rooms is Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. There are plenty of other activities too – all day long and most of the night for any registered attendee interested in joining the fun.

There are three types of registration available: Full Registration, All Access Registration, and Late Registration. Full Registration is recommended for adult fans and teen fans (accompanied by an adult). The All Access registration is recommended for families looking to have fun for the kids beyond looking at displays. All Access registration is also good for adults accompanying TFOLs. The differences in the registration types are depicted in the following table.  Late Registration goes up in price because we want to encourage completion of registration before we are consumed by the details of final planning and because we need to have final numbers for things like goody bags.  So, please register sooner rather than later.
For more information about registering, go to the Registration FAQ page.
