Just wanted to say thanks for putting on a great inaugural BrisBricks.  The displays and layouts were fantastic.  My husband (the Star Wars fan) was blown away by the size of the UCS sets on display.

What a turn out. I didn't really appreciate how many people would be turning up to an event like this.

Again, well done and thanks for organising this great event.

Thanks to the organisers of this event. It was great. My two little boys had a great time - looking at the displays and the LEGO building area was great too. We went on Saturday morning and thought the 10m line was large - but went back on Monday and the que stretched for a good 100m - 200m.

Well done to all involved - it was a great event.

Thanks for the feedback.

The Members of BrisBricks Inc. had a great time in presenting the Expo to the public.

The response was overwhelming; we certainly didn't expect to find so many LEGO enthusiasts eager to see LEGO displays.

Over 8000 people came along and judging from the 'WOWs!' and 'AWESOMEs' that were heard, one would think that it was a great event.

Many thanks to the Scouts for doing the catering; we hope they have fun at their Jamboree.

Stay tuned for BrisBricks 2013 on 5-7th October, 2013.
