PAX is back for 2019 and promises to be bigger than ever!
When PAX finally made its debut in Australia in 2013, nobody could have expected just how big this convention would become. While it had started in 2004 all the way across waters in Seattle, PAX Aus has since provided a home for Australian gamers to celebrate all things gaming.
We at Digital Fox love going to PAX Australia, so much so that we’ve even put together a guide on how to best enjoy PAX. It’s pretty much a given that we are very excited to return to the convention once again!
Now into its seventh year in Australia, PAX has stated that 2019 is going to be a big year, with more panels, tournaments, arenas and gamers than ever before.
Jono Whyman, ReedPOP’s Event Director, quoted that “PAX is the home of gaming culture within Australia, and in 2019 we’re excited to be offering more to the PAX community than ever before.”
Prepare as thousands of like-minded geeks pour into the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on October 11-13th in order to attend Australia’s largest gaming festival.
What can I do at PAX?
To celebrate the conclusion of Melbourne International Games week, PAX visitors will be able to roam the venue playing and competing against others in games ranging from Crash Bandicoot, to Battle Royale and even Dungeons and Dragons. Regardless of whether you’re a hardcore eSports gamer or you’re into watching livestreams, there’s something for everyone at PAX!
Of course, there’ll be plenty of guests and panels at the convention if you’re looking for something else. Or why not come dressed in some battle gear to show off your awesome cosplay?
Where do I sign up?
To register for PAX, all you have to do is go to their website and book your tickets. But I’d hurry if I were you. The convention’s in under a week and there aren’t many tickets left.
PAX is slowly revealing more and more plans about their convention, so be sure to stay tuned for more announcements!
