PAX West date guesses

So Wyrmwood just released their convention schedule https://wyrmwoodgaming.com/about-us/convention-schedule-2018/

And they have two cons taking place when Pax usually does (if I'm reading this right.)

But they confirm that they will be at West with TBA. Could it mean a mid-Sept date?

Apologies if it's early but I got kinda excited for new info.

    And it's definitely something new. The idea of it happening in September is pretty wild IMO. This should be interesting to keep an eye on.

    Normally, PAX West is on Labor Day weekend except every four year when it's bumped by some other event with a prior registration at the convention center. 2007, 2011, and 2015. Going by that pattern, 2019 wouldn't be on Labor Day.

    However, if you look at the booked events at the WSCC there is a conspicuous gap on Labor Day. PAX requires time (supposedly a whole week) both before and after the event for setup and teardown. Another method to tell when PAX will be is look for hotel bookings. The Sheraton is showing sold out for Labor Day weekend, but not any of the other weekends in September. This is because blocks of rooms are reserved to be released when badges go on sale.

    I agree. I started looking for hotels to book hella early - basically, a week after PAX West was finished. I noticed that most of the hotels in the area were already booked for Labor Day Weekend.

    I am hedging my bet on West breaking the mold from the evidence we've seen so far.

    I may or may not have already reserved my spot at the homewood...

    For awhile now, there hasn't really been a question of when PAX West 2019 will be, but I know people want to be really sure before making hard commitments. The Washington State Convention Center recently added a number of dates to their Upcoming Events page. I of course can't give official dates for PAX (I both don't have them and it would not be my place), but at this point, PAX West is either: on Labor Day or not in August or September. This is of course on top of the fact that all OnPeak hotels are booked up for Labor Day weekend too.

    Bonus, even if they wanted to move it into October, that would mean finishing up West and everybody flying to Australia to do another PAX that coming Friday.

    I'm not sure that site has much more info than youngfrey posted. those dates do make sense, but it's not official until it's official.

    you and youngfrey repeated pretty much exact earlier posts you already made in this same thread :)

    haha I thought it was a different thread :)

    Also, by the time it's official the accommodation options are too expensive. My partial reasoning for posting that was so that if it was wrong, they'd get it taken down and that would help in deciding to book early, which I have. Hope I'm right!
