The hit, world-first Jurassic World by Brickman adventure at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) has extended its exhibition dates at the venue until 3 October 2021.
Thousands of fans have poured through the doors at MCEC since the show’s April opening. The event is the largest LEGO® brick exhibition in Australian history, made from over six million LEGO® bricks. Visitors have discovered more than 50 large-scale dinosaurs, props, scenes and activities inspired by the blockbusters Jurassic World franchise, including an enormous T.Rex.
TEG Live and Brickman®, brought the show to Melbourne LEGO®. It was led by LEGO® Certified Professional Ryan McNaught, who said: “Seeing the overwhelming support and turn-out by Victorians has been so rewarding. I am so proud and excited to see the experience extended, and I’m appreciative of every single person who has already visited. I’m totally loving all the models that people have built and contributed to the exhibition.”
Geoff Jones, CEO of TEG, said Jurassic World was shaping up to be the Brickman’s biggest adventure yet.
“We are thrilled to see how Melbourne has fallen in love with this incredible, immersive exhibition and we are delighted that we are able to extend Jurassic World by Brickman® into July,” said Jones.
Peter King, chief executive of Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, said MCEC was thrilled to be extending the partnership with TEG Live and Brickman to keep the exhibition in Melbourne. “This is such a unique event which has helped bring life to MCEC. It’s a great sign for the recovery of not only our business but for Melbourne,” he said.
Organisers and venue stress the show continues to operate with a commitment to a Covid-safe environment including capped visitor numbers, physical distancing measures and sanitiser stations onsite.
Jurassic World by Brickman® is supported by the City of Melbourne, the Victorian Government and the RISE Fund.
