Bethesda, Md., August 28, 2015 – Courtyard is once again on the road, this time stopping at PAX Prime, the largest gaming festival in North America, where fans can experience the latest games and meet gaming’s hottest stars. Bringing its A-game as the Official Hotel of PAX Prime, the brand’s traveling mobile pod – Courtyard @ PAX Powerplay will offer attendees exclusive experiences they’ll never forget.
Courtyard will host an exclusive PAX launch party, to kick-off the nonstop gaming fun, filled with appearances by the industry’s best gamers, music, food and drinks -- plus professional hand massages -- in preparation for the long hard days of gaming ahead.
Throughout the convention Courtyard @ PAX Powerplay will pair gamers with top Twitch stars for exclusive live gaming experiences and hosts fan giveaways for its “Rare Replay” tournaments.
