ReedPop And Penny Arcade Announce PAX South Gaming Convention
For all of those fortunate enough to be in the Boston MA area this weekend, they are treated to the meca of gaming conventions, PAX East. The kind people at Penny Arcade pooled together their Seattle resources back in 2004 and the convention has grown to epic proportions featuring free console gameplay, tabletop gaming, handheld gaming lounges, panel discussions, and much much more.
These events have become in such high demand across the nation that Penny Arcade and ReedPOP, the world’s leading producer of pop culture events, are unleashing another PAX event, PAX South, scheduled to debut in San Antonio, Texas, January 23-25, 2015. This new event will join the likes of other PAX events in Seattle and Melbourne Australia.
“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.'”
