MAJOR SUPER AWESOME (lol) LAST MINUTE UPDATE TO THE UNLOAD AREA FOR FRIDAY
A minor change of plans!
The idea of playing frogger with shuttle busses spooked the building people, so now they're asking all byoc people to drop off their gear in front of the North Lobby. This is the entrance under the huge overhang that stretches over Summer Street...believe me, you'll know it when you see it!
Inside we'll have a station set up where we'll hold your computer and monitor (no accessories, please) in a secured zone so you can park your car and come back for your equipment. We'll also have carts at the ready to help you get it from the lobby into the pc room. Just leave the cart with the BYOC Desk as you register your gear into the room, and you're good to go!
This is totally optional, but you should find it much easier than hauling your gear from the parking lots, although be warned that we'll only be running this from 8am to noon on Friday. Beyond that, you're on your own!
Sorry for the late change of plans, and see you soon!
Yeah this kinda sucks but we are trying to make this as easy as possible.
Older posts (including old load/unload area for reference, most up to date is above).

Be aware: Group seats will only be held until 2pm Friday of PAX. Make sure your group arrives before then or else I remove the reserved marker so others can sit there.
By that point the room is filling up and multiple seats together are at a premium.
BUT BIGRED I DON’T HAVE A LARGE GROUP AND JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT I DO WHEN I GET TO PAX!!1!
Whoa… Calm down there turbo… Don’t worry cause this is a BYOC update post NOW WITH 200% MORE INFO!
Check this map out!
DAY OF INFO!
BYOC = 157 ABC
You also see that road that goes right to SE Lobby B2 with the handy load/unload area that’s almost right in front of the BYOC Room? It’s awesome, isn’t it? If you are a local and you are driving to PAX this will make your life a bit easier.
This might change… but right now if you get to PAX before 8am you will have to lineup outside at that SE Lobby B2 entrance. Day of check-in might have to start a bit later this time around, at like 8:30am depending how everything works out.
Where you get your BYOC badge:
Thursday: There WILL be a BYOC station at reg on thursday to pick up your badge if you want to get it out of the way a day before
Friday Before 10am: There will be a badge station close to the BYOC Security desk in front of room 157 ABC, or I might be outside with you guys in line giving them out.
Friday After 10am-Sunday: the BYOC Security desk in front of 157 ABC
NEEDED FOR BADGE:
- The printout from LANfest that has a barcode on it (you will get these about a week before PAX). PLEASE PRINT THIS OUT, it will make my life a lot easier and you will get your badge a lot faster.
- You will also need photo ID. Everyone should have government issued photo ID on them (If not then thats bad) or a school photo ID.
Just like previously, this is an additional badge that grants you access to the BYOC room only
, this does not replace your 3day pass. You still need your red 3day pass to get into PAX itself. The orange BYOC badge does not grant you early access to any part of PAX, just BYOC on Friday so you have a little extra time to setup your stuff.
Thats it for now! I will reply when theres more updates
Also follow @East_BYOC
on twitter if you want a heads up to any changes that might be made to this.
