PAX East this year? Organizers chose the Hynes Convention Center over the larger Boston Convention Center due to its superior location (and possibly because they were testing the waters for the first year), and the roughly 60,000 attendees were left with not much elbow room.
That won't be an issue next year. Or the next one, or the one after that. The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority has signed an agreement with the PAX organizers to bring PAX East back for three years. Even better, they'll be setting up shop at the roomier Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
"We're thrilled to host PAX through 2013, and we can't wait to welcome the show to the BCEC in 2011," said Convention Center Authority Executive Director James E. Rooney. You can check out the full story in the Boston Globe.
