Now in its fourteenth year, PAX West 2018 will once again span eight buildings across Downtown Seattle, including The Paramount Theatre and Benaroya Hall. As the west coast’s most attended gaming event, PAX West continues to deliver and improve upon the experience its attendees have come to know and love.

In addition to the immense exhibition halls on the fourth and sixth floors where attendees can get hands-on with the most anticipated upcoming titles, the expo will include autograph signings with some of the most popular content creators on YouTube and Twitch, live tournaments with the biggest names in esports, panels with industry leaders, console, tabletop, and PC freeplay areas, a VR lounge, and more.

“PAX West is where it all started, so whenever we have a chance to invite people into our home it’s just a good feeling,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder, Penny Arcade. “Purely as a word advice, I would briefly minimize this window and try to get tickets as soon as you can. They tend to go fast.”

Produced by Penny Arcade, in conjunction with ReedPOP, the PAX series of shows – West, East, South, Dev, Unplugged, and Australia – have become some of the world’s largest gaming conventions, each with tens of thousands of yearly guests. Each and every event provides a celebration of gaming culture, where prominent game creators connect directly with the gaming community via demos, panels, concerts, tournaments, and other exciting opportunities.
