We are happy to announce that Brickworld registration is now open. We have been hard at work performing a complete overhaul on the registration process. In response to your feedback in the survey after last year's event, we have done a couple things to the event. Some items that impact registration:
- There are now 2 types of registration: Full and light. These are described on the web site. But, essentially, full registration is for someone that is contributing to the event and partaking in the workshops and presentations. Light registration is for families that want to show up Friday afternoon, see the event hall without the public, participate in weekend non-public activities, and learn from the AFOLs and TFOLs.
- The full registration will be capped at 650 people to keep things from being unmanagable.
- When you register for the event, you aren't considered registered until you pay (the new process leads you through this)
- The event will start on Wednesday evening with opening ceremonies later in the evening. This will lead to having most of the display space available for MoC setup starting on Thursday morning instead of Thursday evening. Essentially, we are spreading the event out a bit so it is more relaxing for everyone. The survey feedback indicated there was too much happening in too small a space in time.
Don't forget to sign up for your hotel rooms too. Last year the hotel filled up. And, if you are a first time attendee, everyone will tell you that it makes the event a lot more fun to be at the hotel.
You can register at the Brickworld web site. We hope you like the new process and the changes to the event. We are all very excited about Brickworld 2011.
We hope to see you all in Chicago at the Westin North Shore in Wheeling, IL. June 15th through 19th.
Warm Regards, The Brickworld Team
