BC’S LARGEST-EVER LEGO® EXHIBITION AND FAN CONVENTION – SOLD OUT!

 

 VANCOUVER, BC (April 15, 2016) BrickCan – Western Canada’s first major Adult LEGO® Fan Convention, and the largest Public LEGO® Exhibition ever staged in BC – will take place April 21-24, 2016 and it is sold out!

Over 230 adult LEGO® builders and fans will meet, exchange ideas and display their own creations to over 5,000 public attendees. Events such as this take place in other parts of North America and the world but this is BC’s first. As of April 5th, Convention registration is full and all tickets for the Public Exhibition are completely sold out – tickets will be NOT available at the door.

A spokesperson for the organizing team said, “We are very excited that we aimed high and reached our convention attendee goal with participants coming from Canada, USA and other parts of the world. Being sold out for the Convention as well as for the Public Exhibition is a great way to start what we now know will be an annual event.”

On behalf of the organizers of BrickCan Foundation and all the fans of LEGO® we want to say a big thank you for the amazing response to the event, and for all the support we have received! This is a unique situation and a wonderful experience. If you couldn't make it, or missed getting tickets this year we're definitely planning to expand and do it again next year!

We advise the thousands of public ticket holders to COME EARLY!! They should leave extra time to pick up their tickets and be very aware of the time slot for their viewing session. Viewing times are fixed, and with the anticipated crowds, we’d hate to have disappointed people who arrive late and do not enjoy their full session.

Tag your BrickCan photos and experiences online with the hash tags #BrickCan and #AnythingCanHappen.

More details can be found on the BrickCan website – www.BrickCan.com. For more information, interviews, and other media opportunities, please contact Robin Sather.

** Note to online blogs and forums:

We would appreciate it if you could update any online posts or entries with the following. If you have an update email going out, this would also be suitable. We want to make sure that everyone’s experience is as smooth and enjoyable as possible:

 

If you are a ticket-holder, please take careful note of the date, start time, and end time of your viewing session!

We want to pre-process as many ticket holders as possible before each viewing time begins, to maximize your experience. Because of the schedule, and display hall occupancy regulations, session end times cannot be extended, so do not arrive late.

Also, please remember that due to limited space within the display hall, strollers and wagons are not permitted. If you're able to carry your child, ages 3 and under do not require a ticket. Anyone aged 4 years or older requires a ticket for entry. Ticketed children aged 12 years and younger will receive an exclusive BrickCan building kit to take home.
