The two biggest gaming conventions in Australia are set to come together this year as EB Expo and PAX Aus will be partnering for 2018.
PAX Aus will also play host to EB Expo, including a dedicated area for the largest publishers in the world to showcase their upcoming titles, developer presentations in the EB Expo Live Theatre, and Australia’s biggest pop-up EB Games store.
Jono Whyman, Event Manager of PAX Aus mentions that “PAX Aus grows every year, and in 2018, EB Expo is the red mushroom to our Italian plumber.”
“We’re incredibly excited to partner with EB Games to level up PAX Aus and continue to put on the biggest, best gaming show for our die-hard fans and new members of the PAX family.”
Debra McGrath, EB Games Event Director, echoed Jono’s statement: “When we created the EB Expo in 2011, our aim was to share our love of video games with as many people as possible”.
“Our vision for the future is to create a world-class event that becomes a landmark on the global gaming calendar. After an exhaustive search we have found a kindred spirit in the awesome team at PAX Australia, who share our vision.”
PAX Aus will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 26-28 October. More info can be found on the official site.
