Brickworld is a family of conventions and exhibitions for fans first held in Chicago in 2007. It was founded by Adam Reed Tucker and Bryan Bonahoom. The host organization is BrickWorld, LLC. From 2007 to 2012, the venue was the Westin Hotel and Conference Center in Wheeling, Illinois. Some consider it the premiere family of LEGO related conventions and exhibitions, since most other such are single location organizations. In the US Brickfair also has multiple locations.

Brickworld Chicago is both a private convention and a public exposition. Brickworld's private convention offers workshops, presentations, roundtable discussions, special events and challenges. The event provides an opportunity for fan community to get together and learn from each other. The AFOLs are the main focus of Brickworld Chicago.WP Brickworld Chicago occurs annually on the third weekend in June at the Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center in SchaumburgBW.

The public expositions showcase MOCs from skilled builders in areas from 10,000 - 66,000 square feet (930 - 6,000 sq meters).

Brickworld added a second event in 2010 called Brickworld IndyBWI. Brickworld Indy is a public exposition only (no convention) that is put on in partnership with IndyLUG and is held at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis.

In 2011, Brickworld added a third event called Brickworld Fort Wayne structured like Brickworld Indy, but including additional partners from northern Indiana and neighboring statesBWF. In 2013, Brickworld Lafayette was added.
