PAX West is a celebration of gaming and gaming culture featuring thought-provoking panels, a massive expo hall filled with the best publishers and studios, new game demos, musical performances, tournaments, and a community experience unlike any other.

SO WHAT CAN I DO AT PAX?

PANELS

We strive to elevate all aspects of the culture around gaming, and perhaps nowhere is that more evident than our panels, with the full schedule available about a month prior to each event.

EXPO HALL

This hall is packed with exhibitors ranging from AAA publishers and developers behind the latest blockbuster games, to the innovative indie teams disrupting the industry.

OMEGATHON

We’ve selected champions from the audience to compete against each other for your amusement, but beware, the road to the Final Round of the Omegathon is paved with tears and broken dreams. Nah, honestly it’s really great for everyone. See for yourself!
