Brickcon 2018 - Seattle

Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 Washington, USAMember Posts: 1,093
Last year I had the opportunity to attend my first Lego convention in the Seattle area known as Brickcon. It was an incredible experience getting to see the wonderful creations that can be dreamed up with Lego. 

I'm excited to attend again this year with my son and wife and was curious if there is anyone else out there who will be attending tomorrow (10/6)? Would love to meet any fellow Bricksetters and connect a face to a name!

I'll post some photos of the event of some of my favorite builds. Always great to share what the AFOL community comes up with!

    I replied to your comment in the GBC thread, but it's probably more appropriate here (and my comments in that thread are somewhat moot as you mention in this post that Brickcon was your first convention last year).

    I've attended the public expo portion of the Portland convention Bricks Cascade for the last 5 or so years with my son, and we are looking at going full on as convention attendees/exhibitors this year. I was giving serious thought to making the trek up to Seattle for Brickcon as well, but alas didn't do so as we just had returned home from a trip to New York. I'm really curious as to how it compares with the Portland one, as I only have my attendance there along with photos/videos to compare it with other conventions around the country.

    I'll work on getting some photos up of what I saw. I felt that this year had less larger builds than last year, but that the quality of builds this year was far improved. 

    Regarding attendance, there were roughly 3k tickets for the early entry/full day each day, and at least 1-2k per new entrance time thereafter. I felt that it was much busier this year than last. 

    As I've never been to Bricks Cascade, I can't speak to the quality of the two compared, but I thought Brickcon was fantastic and worth a trip!
