Who should attend the Brickworld public expositions?

Why Brickworld?

Where do I get a coupon code for tickets?

Discount codes vary by market, and are not always available. Discount codes are not provided by Brickworld Customer Service or in response to requests via social media.  We do email coupon codes for events to addresses on our email list.  You can sign up for the email list here.

Do you offer discounted tickets to military and/or first responders?

Yes, we offer discounted tickets to both military and first responders at most of our events. The military member (active and retired)/first responder and their immediate family will receive the discount. The discount is only available at the door, and the military member/first responder must show a valid ID.  Unfortunately, due to ticketing complexities, we do not offer this discount at our Michigan show.

Who should attend the convention as a Registered Attendee?

Adults and teens that want to spend the weekend as part of a large family of LEGO loving people. If your hobby is building unique creations out of LEGO bricks and you want to share these creations with others, then you will want to attend as a registered attendee. The target groups for the Full Registrant attendees are Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOLs) and Teen Fans of LEGO (TFOLs). The target group for the All Access Registrant attendees are families, children 12 & under, adults accompanying TFOLs, and spouses/significant others accompanying AFOLs. This option allows families with kids to get many of the benefits while still keeping parts of the event more adult oriented. Minors (under the age of 18) MUST have a parent/guardian register AND attend Brickworld with them. Regardless of maturity level, for liability reasons, those under 18 MUST be accompanied by an adult.

How do I register for the Brickworld Chicago convention?
