PAXAus proved to be a success when the popular gaming culture show made its first foray of US soil earlier in the year.
Despite damp weather, spirits were high as 30,000 Australians traipsed around the Melbourne Showgrounds attending booths related to video, board and card gaming, listening to a variety of presentations on geek culture.
It was so popular that the organising committee committed to the events future in Melbourne and immediately began the search for a larger more centralised location.
They came up with the following announcement:
Tickets are now on sale for next year’s PAX Aus gaming festival, to be held from 31 October to 2 November, 2014 in the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Tickets can now be purchased only through the PAX Aus website: www.paxaustralia.com.au/registration.
Building on the success of the 2013 event, the new venue will allow an increase in space across the entire show, with most feature areas increasing by at least 50%. To accommodate the demand for content, the theatre spaces will also be increased, with three times the amount of space at the 2014 show.
Alongside the individual and three day badges available to purchase, a new three day international badge provides an option for visitors from outside of Australia to ensure they have an equal opportunity to attend the show for the entire weekend.
For those travelling and looking for accommodation, hotel rooms located close by have been reserved exclusively for PAX Aus attendees, and are available through our booking partner OzAccom. Further information on these exclusive offers can be found here: www.paxaustralia.com.au/hotels-and-travel.
For further information visit www.paxaustralia.com.au or follow PAX Australia updates via official Twitter and Facebook.
News today is that all 3 day badges for next year’s event have already sold out, just 24 hours after going on sale.
