This is somewhat of a revival from LEGO, but with a different twist. Reminiscent of the LEGO Truck Show marketing tour of the late 90s, LEGO will offer once again a unique, family-oriented event that will literally feature millions of LEGO bricks, tons of hands-on building events, life-size builds, workshops from renowned LEGO Master Builders and much more. The LEGO Live inaugural event will run from February 16-18, where the show promises a fully immersive, one-of-a-kind experience that will appeal to LEGO fans of all ages. Some of the highlights of the LEGO Live event include a range of interactive play zones, a Master Lab Help Desk, a huge selection of LEGO sets for sale, and a selection of ‘show only’ souvenirs.
If you wish to book as early as now, tickets are already available for purchase online. Check out the full press release below. Will give you updates as soon as more information comes in.
