IFMA Trade Show

IFMA World Workplace Confrence and Expo
October 7th and 8th at the Colorado Convention Center

IFMA, International Facility Management Association, www.ifma.org if you want to learn more. Members of CoWLug and DenLUG were invited by Darin, who is a member of the local IFMA organization that put on this event and is a member of DenLUG to display some of our MOCs and creations at this expo. It’s not the usual type of event by any means. No kids and all business professionals. It was also very fun, especially on the last day picking up some of the giveaways by the booths. We also shared the space with Ed McCaffery and Randy Gradishar from the Denver Broncos when they came to sign autographs.

Ian, Abby, Duane, Jeremy, Jim M, Todd E, and Darin put together a small display. It had creations from city buildings including the cash register building, Republic Plaza, a refinery, pushbutton operated amusement park, Technic builds and tops, to a Denver Bronco mosaic that had autographed tiles added, and a tornado. Basically, Facilities for a Facility Management Expo.

There’s no stopping the rides, you have to work on them as you can.

It was a fun and different event to participate in. And it proves that LEGO makes everything better, even an expo.

Thanks to Darin for the invite. Pictures provided by Ian and Duane.
