Calling All LEGO Fans!
Last week the LEGO® Group took to their social media with a new tease that quickly had us scratching our heads. The colourful, animated image (see below) had many followers expecting the reveal of a flashy new product or theme. Another theory was the LEGO® Group’s announcement of their new set lighting kits. Turns out neither was really the case. Today we got our answer with the LEGO® Group announcing a virtual event named, wait for it – LEGO® CON.
With many Cons and Fairs cancelled over the last year and a half, many companies have opted to host their own events online. It’s a great way to generate buzz, premiere products and generally keep the hype train going. Virtual cons also offer a great opportunity to reach a global audience with access for everyone. The 2 hour event begins at 9AM PST from the LEGO® House. You can join the livestream at lego.com/legocon. But if you miss out on all the fun, the entire broadcast will be recorded and available to view online afterwards. And of course we’ll have a full recap with all the news from the event right here, so stay tuned!
