Breakfast is the most important meal of the day — and if you’re a freelancer at PAX East, it might be the only meal you get.
During PAX Prime last summer, a small gathering of freelancers met in the press room and headed out into the city for drinks. It was a chance to connect with other writers and meet people we’d only known through bylines and Twitter handles. There were only two problems: everyone had different parties to go to, and by the time we got together, PAX was nearly over!
To solve these issues, we’re kicking things off early this year — we’ll be meeting up on Friday morning right before the floor opens, buying up coffee and crumbly pastries from the Westin Starbucks and lounging around the lobby. Be there bright and early to meet new people, connect with old friends, and get to know the fellow press badges you might run into on the expo floor. PAX is a flood of humanity, so we might as well put some familiar faces in the crowd, right?
We’re holding it at 8:00 AM in the Westin, so everyone has time to get to the Expo Floor before it opens for press at 9:00. (Though remember that the PAX shuttles don’t start until 8:00 AM, so get your T passes ready.)
