The 2014 show saw an incredible increase in attendance which exceeded 3,000 individual attendees and attendance for the 2015 show is expected to continue to grow.

Just talking to Kier, we're up for running some Lego D&D again..

We'll go over all that in the meetings thread :) No actual organizing of our activities here, just the announcements when they are hatched.

We are also seeking a diverse group of guests. Once again we are accepting your ideas for panels and workshops.

To get all the details on panels and workshops and how to submit your ideas your suggestions please visit our website.
