PAX East close to selling out – get tickets now

By Stephany Nunneley, Saturday, 23 January 2010 18:59 GMT


PAX East organizers posted on the official site this week that the event in Boston is getting close to selling out.

If you want to get in, you better hurry, especially since tickets have been on sale since October.

“If you want to go to the show, now is the time to register”, read the reminder. “Much like PAX Prime, based on what we’re seeing on pre-registration numbers there will be NO BADGES AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR.

“I don’t like to use all caps, but I felt being rude for a minute there was worth trying to avoid some very angry people at the door in March”.

PAX Prime back in September, saw over 60,750 people attending, despite the risk of Swine Flu – which some caught, apparently.

Keynote details and other bits for the March 26–28 event are to be revealed in the coming weeks.
