The LEGO Idea Conference 2020 Virtual Edition

Create-a-thon

Welcome to the Create-A-Thon! We are thrilled to welcome you to a 24-hour creativity marathon that challenges this year’s LEGO Idea Conference presenters to engage us in hands-on, interactive and playful experiences, all from the comfort of our own homes! In just six days, these folks have taken up the challenge in a true show of creative thinking. We can’t wait to see what they have planned! Tune in for any and all of these interactive sessions and get ready to play with us!

 

Programme

For the entire 24-hours - Coffee Break + Networking

Come on in! What are often some of the more powerful experiences of any conference are those spaces in-between where you can find kindred spirits and make connections. In this meeting room, you can also break off into private rooms or one-on-one chats, so have a blast!
