History of the Boston Convention Center
Another event that has made its home in the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center is the Penny Arcade Expo, or PAX East, the country's largest video game convention. The event is based off of PAX Prime, a West Coast version that takes place in Seattle. This year, PAX East moved from the Hynes Convention Center to accommodate a much larger crowd. Around 60,000 attendees were expected in 2011.
