    heh noticed they don't have Any availability - so it is either too far out to book or a block has already been placed, I assume.

    It was like that somewhere in June this year, but the blocks opened up as usual later on.

    Most places don't book more than 9-10 months in advance.

    Well, at least this year it's a week before Easter. What about conflicts with the Anime convention?

    Anime Boston is not on the mass convention schedule yet.

    the Westin only opens up the rooms sometime in August. Keep an eye on the forums everyday starting mid august and you shouldn't miss it (the forums NOT the hotel page of the pax website)

    No conflicts. Anime Boston will be May 24-26 next year. http://www.animeboston.com/about/general_faq/#13

  • AsmadiGamesAsmadiGames Registered User
    AnimeBoston is on Memorial Day weekend next year. While dates for the next several years aren't public yet, AB and PAX have collaborated and made it so no collisions will happen for at least the next 4 (5?) years.

    The next conflict with anime Boston will be most likely be in 2014 as they will both be in march and if everything is normal for pax(third week of march then they will be the same weekend but that's 2014 we don't need to worry.

    One thing I'm immediately doing to plan and keep up on airfare prices is signing up for the "Price Agent" at Momondo.com (which indexes/scrapes fares from a multitude of sites) I wanted to fly this year but waited too long and the prices extremely hiked up before I was able to put money aside for them. Now I'll get a weekly email reminder of any airfare that starts popping up (nothing yet) for the PAX East 2013 dates.

    Also going to try for the Westin hotel next year by actually booking it myself as soon as the hotel finder opens and not relying on my friends to do it. We'll see how that goes.

    A block has been placed, almost assuredly.

    My friends dad owns the westin hotel and he told me that to book a room you will have to do it directly through Pax when it comes available or just wait closer to the event. So don't be worried there are plenty of rooms to go around.

    I just wish PAX next year didn't coincide so close with Wrestlemania in New Jersey. Decisions may have to be made

    WOW! I have the same dilemma as you. I really want to go to PAX East again next year but as a long time wrestling fan I also really want to go to Wrestlemania. I only live 2 hours away from where Wrestlemania is next year and going to Wrestlemania is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Also I was going to attend the fan access among other things. I am still thinking about getting just a one day PAX pass and going for one day next year. I just hope my work won't be mad that I'm taking off so many days.

    I'm with ya, I'm in Connecticut halfway between Boston and NJ, and as much as I loved PAX this year, Wrestlemania tends to be one of those once in a lifetime deals for a wrestling fan. The time off isn't much of a factor for me, it's more the the money than anything else. PAX is 3/22 - 24 and WM related activites are like 4/3 - 4/7, so they're both within the same 2 week span of each other. I guess it would be possible to do both, but that would be pretty brutal both physically and on my wallet, so we'll have to see.

    awesome that you're so excited, maybe a bit crazy to book. if you're booking a pax hotel, being outside the pax block makes you more likely to get bumped from your room if the hotel overbooks. it's always better to book with the pax block. personally, i plan to spend my extra summer free time working on something really awesome to cosplay and waiting til post-prime to start worrying about the hotel and such.

    Now that we have the dates confirmed we just need the times confirmed because hopefully they will extend the exhibit hall hours as a lot of people are complaining they are to short which i agree with. Something like 9am till 8pm would be nice or even longer.

    They will not expand the exhibit hours. People complain about it every year, but there's no feasible way to do it. If you've ever been an exhibitor at any sort of a large show, you'll know how much they already have to work to be open from 10-6. If they do change it, I will be /so/ incredibly surprised that words will not be able to explain. E3, for example, has almost the same expo hours (a bit less actually) and the meeting rooms close at the same time expo does for the most part. PAX is open a LONG time.

    @gamerman1227, @mgriff3456, @redfield85, @Meester Scyllz, this is OT, but between all of us, I think there should be some sort of unofficial wrestling event. Like a casual No Mercy tourney at the Console Freeplay room or something.

    I'm glad PAX East isn't ON Mania weekend, because my boys would kill me if I missed Mania.

    That said, if I can get the time off work, I don't see any conflicts!

    I don't think the hotel I booked is usually in the PAX block. It's not one of the ones right beside the BCEC. It's actually right beside the one I booked last year so I dont think I'll have a problem (if it does become available I'll cancel the first reservation and re-book !)

    Yes! definitely. If I do manage to make it to both PAX and Wrestlemania next year I would definitely be down for some No Mercy or any wrestling game for that matter.

    It's good to know the dates of next PAX East, but to book your hotel now is not a good idea in my view. I always keep a close eye on the forums for the official hotel booking through PA. That way I get a room at a reduced rate in my hotel of choice, that being Westin. It's important to note that it is the forums that get first dibs on hotels, hence the need to keep a close eye on them as the next PAX approaches.

    Speaking of which, I wonder when the PAX Prime hotels go up....

    I agree somewhat its a good idea to book early because you will get cheap rate as the closer you get the more expensive it will get but then again PAX does offer good rates so either way its a win win situations as long as you don't book a week before the event.
