We assumed that the first year of PAX East would be a slightly smaller event than PAX West. This is a new show in a new venue and we just figured it would take a few years for people to really warm up to it. Imagine our surprise when looking at pre-registration numbers, it became clear that PAX East would be as big if not bigger than our Seattle show. I can’t believe I’m saying this about the first year of PAX East, but if pre-registration keeps going like this we will probably have to cap attendance just like we did this year in Seattle.
Our Early Bird discount will be ending on December 31st. Until then you can get one-day passes for $25 and three-day passes at $45. After that the prices go up to $35 and $55 respectively.
Pax East will also host the Boston Indie Showcase. This is an opportunity for local developers to show off their games on the exhibition floor. If you’re a Boston game maker you have until January 15th to apply for a spot in the Showcase.
