Speaking of PAX fever.. I just realized that I can go this year! This is news to me, as before there was something stupid going on.. this date change has made 2009 worth while.

Okay.. so let me get this straight tho. Pax WASN'T supposed to be on labour day weekend for a few more years. It WAS supposed to be the last weekend of August. But now PAX IS on Labour day weekend.. In September? If this is correct.. Why was the change made?

The decision to hold PAX on Labor Day weekend going forward is threefold:
1. Given 70% of attendees are coming in from out of town, it allows for 1 extra day of travel as opposed to rushing back on Friday night.
2. Seattle (despite Bumbershoot being that same weekend) is actually dead in terms of out-of-town travel on Labor Day Weekend. What this means is we're able to negotiate hotel room rates at much more aggressive rate than the week before - we're literally talking a difference of hundreds of dollars for the weekend for attendees.
3. Because most conferences/trade shows are business-to-business, we're actually able to get the space we need as opposed to being crammed in with another large show.

I am wanting to go to both bumbershoot and pax, but I'm probably just going to go to Pax.
