A whistlestop tour of Asia

As my travels in Asia now come to a close, I reflect on a busy few days!  

Posted by David Ciclitira on September 22, 2018

After having visiting the opening of the first Brick Live Kids Café in Seoul I attended the very professional and exciting opening of the BRICKLIVE Jungle Experience in Busan. With part of this event housed in a mini-dome, and with projections rendering the surrounding walls, BRICKLIVE and its accompanying LEGO built animals really came to life! This partnership is only just beginning and so I look forward to seeing the continuation of this journey. After Busan, I visited our partners in Japan who join my excitement in the newest touring and animal themed developments of BRICKLIVE.

For the last leg of my trip I met with our team in China. Now with 15 people, our China base is quickly becoming a hub of energy and development. Whilst here, I attended meetings with the team who are working tirelessly on the upcoming Animal Paradise project; logistics, marketing, promotional activities and the like. Two of the more interesting additions to this project are the merchandise and the focus on education. Both are being developed in-house and the latter is rapidly becoming an integral part of the project with games, education literature, and fully constructed programmes and teaching staff. 

Once I return from my busy trip, I will then be taking a short trip to Basel to visit our partners there. As always, BRICKLIVE is moving upwards and forwards. This is an exciting time for us and our partners. 

I travelled to Bangkok specifically to see the Bricklive show which opened on 26 July, to say the three day event was good would be a gross understatement. BEC-TERO have surpassed themselves in presenting an excellent show which exceeded my expectations and the huge visitor numbers would confirm the show’s tremendous success. I congratulated BEC-TERO’s CEO Neil Thompson personally during our meeting where we began discussing future shows and projects. 

Moving to Seoul I had a successful meeting with Mr Reon Kim during which he told me of his exciting new plans for Brick Live Lite. I also attended the opening at the DDP of the Bricklive Kids’ Café which has truly great content. The opening was well attended by visitors and press alike. 

Tomorrow I travel to Busan to attend the opening of Bricklive BIFF and Jungle Dome for what is set to be a truly great event.
