Canberra Brick Expo to start July 14th at The Hellenic Club in Canberra
Thousands of LEGO fans are heading to Canberra this July. The annual Canberra Brick Expo is on from the 14th to 15th July.

At Brick Expo this year:
• See Australia’s tallest LEGO model built by Ryan McNaught, Australia’s LEGO Certified Professional;
• Witness an intergalactic Star Wars™ battle, LEGO slot car racing and a vast range of exhibits from around Australia;
• Mingle and connect with thousands of LEGO fans;
• Specialist authorised LEGO resellers on site with a large range of unique and hard to find LEGO sets;
• Catch inspiring LEGO movies in the brick cinema; and,
• Take part in an engaging and inspirational VIP dinner with LEGOLAND master model builder, Gary McIntire.

“We have an amazing Brick Expo planned for this year, and are so excited to be able to share the fun and creativity of LEGO with the community, as well as raise money to help kids in need at the Canberra Hospital,” said David Boddy, President of Brick Expo.
Changes have been made to the 2012 event. “After such an overwhelming response in 2011, we have decided to sell tickets online in timed sessions” said Boddy. People wanting tickets should visit www.brickexpo.com.au and follow the link to the ticketing site. Proceeds from ticket sales go to support the purchase of much needed equipment at the Canberra Hospital children’s ward.

Big thanks to the organisers for this years event. the new format of selling session tickets worked great. In previous years it's been a very slow and sometimes 2 hr line to get in but with the 90 minute timed sessions we spent about 10 minutes in a 100m long line , volunteers walked along the line checking tickets and we were ushered inside in no time at all right on time. The kids had a great time as usual and there were some great displays to keep them all occupied.

See you all there next year. Hopefully one day I'll have the room to unpack my collection and attend as exibihiter
