About PAX East
From its humble beginnings in Bellevue in 2004, Penny Arcade Expo grew from a local event receiving a little over 3,000 attendees in its first iteration to an international series of events gathering millions of gaming fans across Seattle, Boston, Philadelphia, and Melbourne.
Over the past 20 years, PAX has witnessed the reveal of titles like Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft and Borderlands 3, delivered keynote speeches from industry legends including former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé and current Head of Microsoft Studios Matt Booty, massive esports tournaments featuring some of the world’s most popular games and content creators, marriage proposals, the coolest cosplays, and more.
In traditional PAX fashion, East’s attendees can expect the East Coast’s largest gaming event to feature its usual showcase of new and upcoming releases including never-before-seen demos and announcements, dozens of panels covering wide-ranging topics, esports tournaments, vendors, community meet-ups, and a ton of festivities to celebrate PAX’s 20th Anniversary, including exclusive merch, epic giveaways, surprise collaborations, and more.
Exciting announcements revealing keynote speakers, exhibitors, and gaming partnerships will be announced soon. Badges for PAX East 2024 will be available for purchase starting Thursday, Nov. 16. Four-day badges will be available for $250, and single-day badges for $67.
“As we start into the twentieth year of PAX, PAX East is sure to set things off in a spectacular fashion,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder of Penny Arcade, Child’s Play, and PAX. “Years ago, we thought we’d never need a venue like Boston’s incredible BCEC. But gamers proved us wrong.”
Sounds like this year is all about the gaming convention scene, with INDIE Live Expo Winter 2023 starting December 2. Stay tuned for more gaming news here on Miso!
