A Guide To Gaming Conventions

Jessica Winkler of Metal Arcade writes:

Gaming conventions are a great way to meet new people, hang out with old friends, and get the inside scoop on all things related to the gaming industry. They are used for networking, promoting, and just having an all around great time. With PAX Prime just a week away, a lot of convention goers are going into panic mode, grabbing last minute flights and trying to find hotels that aren’t 50 miles from the convention center. For me, it’s been a few years since my last big event, and the excitement is mounting.

A lot of people I talk to are intimidated by the idea of these large conventions (Blizzcon, E3, PAX, MLG, WCG…) To be fair, it can seem a little overwhelming. For anyone who hasn’t been to one of these events, if it’s your first time, or if you could just use some tips on how to make the process a little easier, I’ve made a list of things I think everyone should know. (Culture, E3, Industry, PAX)
