Jan 17 Update:
Folks, we've checked in over 100 of you now, and we've not seen a car in about an hour, so we're closing down the loading dock entrance at noon. We will still have carts available for you at BYOC if you'd like to borrow them, but you'll either have to bring your equipment from wherever you parked or wherever you're staying.
Jan 12 Update:
Load-in process has been finalized:
In short, same loading area as the last 3 years, except instead of using the loading dock right at the entrance, you'll go to the far end and use that loading dock. Cut across registration to the lobby and take the elevators straight up to BYOC.
Here's a google maps link to the entrance of the loading area:https://goo.gl/maps/AL14y5TbupA3EpG49
Platypus King is even busier than usual with non-PAX things so you're stuck with me (but don't worry, he'll still be filling his usual role at PAX itself)... Let's get down to business.
BYOC Badges are (as of now) still available and can be purchased from here:BYOC Badges
Group Seating Details:
GROUP SEATING OPEN DATE: TODAY!
GROUP SEATING CLOSE DATE: January 15th at midnight CST
Group Seating Requirements:
Your party is considered a group if you have SIX or more people.
Groups must pre-register seating assignments prior to PAX, or else seats will be based on first come first serve availability.
Requests are taken on a first come, first serve basis.
Passes for ALL 3 days of PAX! (recommended to maximize fun, but not a hard requirement)
If you have multiple BYOC badges, those count as seats (group members) so if you have 6 BYOC passes in your "group" (regardless the number of physical bodies) you qualify for group seating.
To request group seating, use the seating chart below to choose your seats and email [email protected]
(NEW EMAIL FOR THIS YEAR)
Include the following information when requesting:
Number of People (include handles too)
Desired Location (include a backup location, too, as we can't promise we'll be able to keep the chart up-to-the-minute updated)
Please note the seating chart is not final and subject to change. This is actually always the case but even more so this year. If the seating chart does change and we have sufficient notice, we will give all groups the opportunity to re-pick their seating. If we don't have sufficient notice, we will choose new seats for your group, doing our best to mimic what you chose in the old seating chart.
Pre-registration is open to all BYOC attendees this year that already have their BYOC badge in-hand. You can fill out the Google Form located here: BYOC Pre-Registration
. Pre-registration basically just means we'll have all your info in the database already when you arrive on-site so check-in should go much faster for you. Again, in order to pre-register you must already have your BYOC badge(s) in-hand. To anyone picking them up at Will Call: we'll close the form at noon on Thursday, so if you're able to pick up your badge(s) from Will Call before then, you'll be able to pre-register.
More information will come out in the mailer, but just to drill some of the usual points home:
- Bring your own network cable! 20ft recommended.
- Each seat gets 2x power outlets
- No appliances (fridges, toasters, hot plates, microwaves, soldering irons, coffee makers, etc)
