PAX Australia kicks off in Melbourne in just under a week, running November 4th to 6th. The fourth for Australia this will in fact be my seventh PAX in attendance! I’ve been very fortunate to attend the show overseas and have watched it continue to grow larger and become more extravagant with each outing. It’s done this but always remained true to its original focus in being a convention constructed around it’s public attendees made for the people. It’s my favourite show to attend and without a doubt one of Australia’s largest now utilising the entire Melbourne Convention Centre end to end.
Being so large trying to navigate your way through it all over three days, or even worse – just one, can be a little daunting. To help I’ve put together a list of tips, tricks and information that I think is of use to any attendee, be it your first or seventh time round.
Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) Australia is my favourite event of the year. Taking place for the third time the show continues to grow bigger, attract larger exhibitors and provide an impressive array of speakers and panelists from around the world.
Tickets to PAX Australia 2014 are on sale now. Judging by my Twitter Stream, you already know this.
The show will be moving to the larger Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, and will be held from October 31st to November 2nd, 2014. With this change, we’re able to triple the size of our theatre spaces for next year, and there are exciting plans in the works for more international content and personalities to are coming to the show!
Good change for the venue, but the date? Not so sure about that. Melbourne Cup is on the 4th of November next year, which means Victoria Derby Day is on the 1st and the whole week after that is racing events.
That’s gonna be a real tough week to book Melbourne accommodation.
