PAX East (or as I like to call it, PAX Easter) is coming up on April 6th through the 8th. We recognize that this falls on a holiday for some of you. The problem, is that we are at the mercy of the convention center when it comes to dates. Trust me when I tell you we didn’t pick Easter just to be jerks. However, even with PAX falling on such a holy day, we are still 90% sold out of 3 day badges! Sinners.
There are also a few PAX related deadlines that are fast approaching:
-1/15/12 is the deadline for submissions to our Boston Indie Showcase.
This is a contest open to indie developers who have a mobile game they’d like to show off at PAX east.
-2/1/12 is the deadline for PAX East panel submissions.
Is there something you’d like to say to the gaming community? Well this is the place to do it.
We’ve got a great space in Boston for the show. Those of you who attended last year know just how massive the Boston Convention Center is. That said, we will still sell out of badges. At PAX prime this year we had a problem with counterfeit badges that really messed with our numbers. We tried to accommodate those badges and it made for long lines and big crowds. It’s also a very real safety issue. So at PAX East we have kicked our anti-counterfeiting measures up significantly. We also will not be able to let you into the show if you don’t have the real deal. So buy your badge from us or if you have to buy it someplace else please, please, please be smart about it.
