PAX East is one of the nation’s largest gaming conventions.  Highlights include booths from major game publishers and independent developers, panels featuring video game industry insiders, game demonstrations, competitions, and more. In addition, participants use the event to announce new releases and tease upcoming projects.

The theme for this year’s Becker College booth at PAX East is “Realize Full Potential, Exceed Every Expectation, Defy All Boundaries.”

“In addition to an exciting collection of student games, Becker booth #8048 at PAX East 2020 is designed to be a mecca of inspiration for Becker interactive media students—past, present, and future,” said Paul Cotnoir, PhD, associate dean of Becker College’s School of Design & Technology. “We will highlight Becker’s concept of the Interactive Media Design Ecosystem, which seamlessly integrates the technology, business, and design elements of game development. “

PAX East attendees are invited to drop by Becker’s booth to play and experience games created by current and former Becker students, and learn more about Becker’s Master of Fine Arts in Interactive Media and first-in-the-nation Esports Management bachelor’s degree.  Members of the College’s Admissions Office will be available to answer questions.

The PAX East Becker booth includes a showcase of work by students in the Master of Fine Arts in Interactive Media program as well as alumni spotlights. There will also be an interactive booth quiz.  Guests are encouraged to stop by and test their game character knowledge.
