PAX West takes place at the Seattle Convention Center (formerly known as the Washington State Convention Center), which is conveniently located in downtown Seattle, Washington. 

This year, PAX expands into the SCC’s brand new Summit building which is located right down the street from the original building, which now goes by Arch building.

The Main entrance for PAX West will be at the new Summit building, but a number of show features can still be found at Arch.

If you’re flying in, the closest airport is the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport with the airport code of SEA. There are a few options for getting from the airport to downtown Seattle, but what we recommend is taking our light rail service called the Link. Trains run from SeaTac north to downtown Seattle every 5-20 minutes depending on the time of day, and you can get more information from their website at
