    Skærbæk Event 2008, Denmark 26-28th September

    CopMike
    By CopMike,

    Hi all!

    Jan Beyer from TLG has reminded us of the LEGO event in Skærbæk Denmark the last weekend in September.

    It´s organized by some members of the Danish LEGO club Byggepladen in cooperation with him.

    Jan also writes:

    It is a very cozy event where you can meet and greet, discuss and talk and have some fun and a good time with other AFOLs from around the world and see and present some cool Mocs. For the moment we have registered participants from Denmark, Germany, England, Austria and Brazil. But we hope to get more people to come.

    I also have planned a little bit interesting stuff in Billund (with a look behind the scenes) for the participants who are still there on the Monday after the event and like to participate.

    :oh::wub:

    You can find all information and also the registration form here.

    Some Embassy information from CopMike

    CopMike
    By CopMike,

    Hi everyone!

    You have been great with all the questions and activity in the Embassy :thumbup:! I have tons of Q for TLG but not so many answers.

    That depends on a couple of things:

    * It´s been (& still is!) vacation time

    * The amount of Q´s & requests coming in from a lot of people goes to a few who also need to find out information. So far this process isn´t really working.

    * One of the projects for the Ambassadors is to finetune this process.

    So what I´m saying is that all your input is highly appriciated, but it will take a while for the answers to get back to you.

    Please put up with this and don´t lose faith in all of the TLG people & Ambassadors in trying to do great things happen :cry_happy:!

    Prices in the US vs. Europe

    CopMike
    By CopMike,

    There´s been a lot of questions about the different prices of LEGO around the world.

    Here is an answer from Mads Nipper from TLG Corporate Management concerning the prices in the US compared to Europe:

    Our selling costs in Europe and Asia are higher than in the US because of the size of US market and retailers (economies of scale). Furthermore, the US market is by far the most price competitive in the world. These factors combined mean that we have for years priced our products higher in eg Europe than the US. In recent years, the difference has been increased due to the weakening US dollar - but we have consciously decided not to let this (hopefully short term) weakening of the dollar hurt the US consumer. And in order to stay profitable as a company, we cannot decrease our European prices - especially seen in the light of increasing cost pressure on oil, labor etc. Finally, final pricing in the market place is obviously determined by retailers, which is something we cannot and will not influence.

    Discuss it here.
