Not sure what this Convention thing is all about? We can help!
Pacific Media Expo (PMX) is a convention. Pricing for conventions is something like a carnival, except that most of the attractions don’t have their own tickets. You just need to show your membership badge at the door to get in. Some events are open to the public (no badge required, but some may have their own tickets). Other events are premium and require a badge as well as their own tickets.
The programming schedule is more like a trade show or culture/film festival. Areas where things are sold tend to run all day, or at least for many hours. Premiere events usually happen at one set time. Programming tracks run all day and have many different features, usually with a similar theme. A convention badge gets you into nearly all of these. Exceptions will be posted at the door of each event that has its own tickets.
There are three types of memberships depending on how many days you will be attending or how many days the convention is running on:
One-Day – Valid for one day, from the morning (usually at 9 a.m.) until the wee hours of the night (like 2 a.m. the next day), depending on the programming schedule for that day.
Two-Day – Works like two One-Day badges for two days of your choosing, usually if the convention is running for three or more days.
Full – Valid throughout all the days of the convention.
There is a sliding discount scale as more days are added to your badge. If you had so much fun that you want to upgrade your badge for the next day, just go to PMX Registration by 8:00 p.m. on Saturday or Sunday. Upgrades cost only the price difference between your old and new badge; there is no upgrade fee.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask the PMX Information Desk. They’ll be more than happy to help you find something you like at PMX!
