Confirming previous reports, officials for the Penny Arcade Expo's first trip Down Under have announced that PAX Australia will indeed take place at the Melbourne Showgrounds from 19-21 July 2013, with a further nod that the show will also return to the Victorian capital in 2014.
Victorian Minister for Innovation, Services and Small Business Louise Asher today joined Penny Arcade President Robert Khoo to announce that Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) Australia will be held in Melbourne in 2013 and 2014.Pricing has been set at a reasonable AU$45 per day, or $115 for a three day pass, and registrations are now open over on paxaustralia.com.au.
Got my ticket, hopefully they pull it off and this is awesome. Either way, I'd much rather support a convention like this one, over the EB one.
Did you get a 3-day pass or a single day Khel? I'll probably just go on the one day (Saturday) and keen to catch up with any other QGLers that are going.
awesome. pay day tomorrow, will be buying 3 day pass.
I got the three day pass, dunno if there'll be enough there to actually fill three days, but I'd hate to miss out if there was :P
Would be keen for a catch up/pissup at some point throughout the weekend.
that sucks. hoped they would change cities each year.
Hmmm, I guess I may as well get the 3 day pass, it's only a little more than 2 days.
How fast does PAX usually sell out?
Not sure how quick this one will sell out, the 3 day passes usually sell out pretty quickly for the ones in the US though
Haha, looking at the PAX FAQ:
Good advice for the PAX conference perhaps, but in the event of a zombie apocalypse staying within the city quarantine zones will almost certainly get you killed.
Awesome, bought a few 3 day passes for some mates and I. Should be a great few days.
you guys will pull all the chicks
And you can pull all the d**** then paveway =)
Does QGL need someone to take photos??
Got my tix...
Did everyone say yes to omegathon?
