Bricks by the Bay is a convention for LEGO hobbyists, artists, fans, and enthusiasts. If you have been to other conventions such as BrickCon (Seattle), BrickFair (Virginia/Alabama/New England), BrickWorld (Chicago), Bricks Cascade (Portland), etc. you are already familiar with the basic format. We gather in a large hotel ballroom to display our models and participate in a variety of games, presentations, and activities. There is a public show on the last day where everyone can come and see all the exhibits. (Unlike most conventions, we only have one public day at Bricks by the Bay.)
On Friday & Saturday we have various events (break-out sessions) such as presentations, roundtable discussions, games, etc. from 9am to 6pm, a break for dinner, and an evening program with prizes, speeches, etc. followed by more games and contests.
The Bricks by the Bay convention is a 3-day event running from Friday through Sunday. Convention attendees have the opportunity to meet people in the flesh whom they’ve only seen online, or see models in person that they have seen pictures of online. There are a number of talks, discussions, games, contests, and other activities throughout Friday and Saturday for attendees, as well as a large exhibit hall where they can display their LEGO models for one another and for the public day on Sunday.
Registration for the convention includes a number of goodies:
Printed LEGO brick badge with your name, city, and affiliation(s). *
Special room rate at the hotel with free Wi-Fi in your room and lobby, and $20 discount on one convention registration.
A printed program, listing schedule of events and information about events.
Goodies donated by our sponsors. **
Opportunities to win door prizes and contests.
Display space in the exhibit hall for your models.
Access to all convention activities throughout the three days.
Access to buy from vendors on Friday and Saturday as well as during public hours on Sunday.

Não que esteja a pensar ir, mas acho que a localização é tão importante como a data... o que é menos relevante neste tipo de informação é a descrição detalhada do evento.... afinal há um link onde se pode ler, caso se esteja interessado...
