Brickworld began with a single convention/expo event in the Chicago area in 2007. Our original home was the Westin Hotel in Wheeling, IL. Brickworld expanded to hold a second expo in partnership with the Indiana LEGO User Group (IndyLUG) in 2010. A third event (Brickworld Fort Wayne) was started in 2011.
Brickworld was founded under the prinicples of getting together with existing friends and making new friends. Our motto (Share - Learn - Explore - Discover) reflects our intent to be not only a fun event, but also an educational event where LEGO artists and engineers learn from each other.
A major element of the convention is the spirit of giving. Registered attendees come to share their knowledge with others through seminars, workshops, and impromptu discussions. But the spirit of giving does not stop there. Each year we hold an auction to raise money for charities. Items in the auction are also donated by sponsors and attendees. Over the years, the charity auction has become more and more prominent at the event and adds a lot to the fun.
As the event has grown, so has the team running the event. In 2007, a team of 14 people led the way through the convention. That team is now 37 people and all their efforts help bring the event to the attendees and public each year.Brickworld, LLCP.O. Box 7114Fishers, IN 46037317-572-LEGO (317-572-5346)
