The PAX (Penny Arcade Expo) series of shows represent some of the largest gaming festivals in the world, drawing tens of thousands of attendees to each. In front of a sellout crowd at PAX East 2014, ReedPOP, the world’s leading producer of pop culture events, and Penny Arcade, one of the largest gaming communities on the internet, announced the addition of a new PAX event to the calendar – PAX South.
Slated to debut in San Antonio, Texas in early 2015, PAX South expands an event calendar that includes shows in Seattle, Boston, and Melbourne, Australia. The southern addition marks the fourth PAX show and third to occur in the U.S., continuing the tradition of providing the most authentic celebration of game culture in the world.
“The love of gaming in all its many forms, whether that be on a TV, a computer, a phone, or even a tabletop, is hitting an all-time high. PAX gives gaming fans one place to get a glimpse of emerging trends and does it in a truly fun and interactive way,” said Lance Fensterman, Global Vice President of ReedPOP.
Robert Khoo, Penny Arcade President, added, “Since its launch in 2004, PAX events have doubled in size almost every year, and our Seattle and Boston events represent the two largest gaming festivals in North America. We’ve been hearing for years that those in the south had a tough time making it to the northern corners of the country; PAX South has always been a matter of ‘when’ rather than ‘if.'”
The PAX South event will be held on January 23th -25th, 2015. Who’s Going?
