Hey everyone – I’m a returning PAX vet whose last attendance was back in 2012. I had my convention experience down to a science back then, but four years is a long time in con-space, and I’m sure things have changed. I’m also bringing a friend this time after many years of solo attendance, and I don’t want to lead him astray with my outdated knowledge. So I come to you folks to ask: what has
changed since 2012? Any and all information is appreciated, and I’m specifically curious about…
#1: Theater clearances – where should we expect to see these happen?
#2: Concert access – I see in the FAQ that it’s first-come, first-served now, so how early do you need to be in line to get a seat?
#2a: Followup question, is the concert the sort of thing where you can come in and out, as it was in The Olden Days when bands played to a big room without chairs, or are we all taking seats now, so that movement would be disruptive?
#3: How popular are the earlier Omegathon rounds these days?
Thanks in advance - it's good to be back
