Event Overview:

PAX is a three-day gaming festival for gamers of all genres to come together and celebrate the culture of gaming. Unreleased games, big booths, fabulous prizes, game music concerts, the gaming community and industry support puts PAX far above any other show on the planet. We present to you a captive and perfectly-matched audience eager and willing to learn about the latest products you have for the upcoming holiday season.

In 2004, the folks at Penny Arcade decided they wanted a show exclusively for gaming. Sure, comics, anime, and other nerd hobbies were cool, and those activities all had their own shows… so what about games? From that idea spawned a small 4,500 person event in Bellevue, Washington, focused on the culture and community that is gaming.

Since then, the show hasn’t looked back. Doubling in size each year until venue capacities were reached, in 2010 the show expanded into Boston for PAX East, drawing tens of thousands of attendees in the inaugural year. The shows in Seattle and Boston represent the two largest gaming events in North America!

Concerts

A big part of PAX is connection, and we’re proud to say we’re a niche show with fans that treat these niche acts like the rockstars they are.

Console Freeplay

In the Console Freeplay area, we bring hundreds of the latest gen (and classic!) consoles along with all the titles you may have missed throughout the year. Utilizing the ShoatEngine5000, we’ve created a free, easy-to-use checkout system for all PAX attendees. ENJOY!

Exhibit Hall

Publishers and Developers putting their best foot forward with unreleased games and hardware? What more could you ask for?

Before PAX existed, the only place in North America you could see an E3 style exhibition floor was… well, it was E3. Since that show was for industry insiders only, PAX has been the only place the public could see, hear and experience the insanity that is a game industry expo hall. With over a hundred thousand square feet of show floor and all genres, platforms and styles of games represented, this area makes for one of the highlights to the PAX experience.

Handheld Lounge

It started with an open area that fire marshals wouldn’t let us setup a booth in and slowly became one of the mainstays to PAX. With each show offering hundreds of beanbags for your use, these organically created meetup areas allow those with 3DS’, PSPs and Vitas to congregate and play to their hearts content. Heck, we’ve even seen some Nomads in there. Grab a beanbag, occupy a corner and look for those ad-hoc games!

Omegathon

20 contestants are chosen, and six rounds later a single survivor travels together to Japan as their grand prize. This is the PAX Omegathon!

Panels

Whether it’s your favorite webseries or a lecture from the developer you love, the panels at PAX have knowledge or entertainment for gamers of all types. Do you have a panel you want to put together capable of entertaining a few hundred people? Submit it here!

PC Area

For those that can’t stand the closed system of the console world, we’ve set up huge areas with hundreds of high-end PCs for your enjoyment. Laugh at those poor developers struggling to squeeze everything they can from console hardware made years ago, as we’re catering to you- the PC gamer that is satisfied with nothing but the MOST gigs and the HIGHEST resomolutions.

Tabletop

Ranging from as hardcore to D&D to as casual as Bananagrams, the PAX Tabletop area has games for all gamer types and skill levels. With hundreds of freeplay tables and the ability to checkout games like you would books at a library, this area could easily keep you occupied for the entire weekend. Forget all those digimal beep boops - rolling a twenty and looking your opponent in the eye is where it’s at!
