A PAX East 2019 Zipper Bag, perfect for holding pens, pencils and pins, can be purchased for $20.

PAX East 2019 will mark the show’s tenth anniversary as the east coast’s premier gaming event.  Tens of thousands will take part in a massive four-day celebration of gaming culture including reveals of AAA games, hands-on demos with 2019’s most anticipated titles, panels with the biggest names in the industry, intense esports tournaments with the world’s most talented competitors, and concerts from game-inspired composers and musicians.

“When we held the first East, we hoped the show would one day be big enough to need the BCEC,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder, Penny Arcade. “A decade later, the BCEC is like a second home for us. Grab tickets while you can.”
Working journalists and content creators interested in attending PAX East 2019 to produce show coverage can apply for media badges beginning in January.

The PAX series of shows (West, East, South, Australia and Unplugged), produced by ReedPOP in conjunction with Penny Arcade, comprise some of the world’s largest gaming festivals. PAX events connect the industry’s greatest creative minds from across the worlds of video and tabletop gaming, directly to passionate audiences.

PAX or Penny Arcade Expo is a festival for gamers to celebrate gaming culture. First held in Seattle in 2004, PAX has nearly doubled in size each successive year, with PAX Prime 2014 selling out of tickets in a matter of minutes. Connecting the world’s leading game publishers with their most avid and influential fans, PAX expanded with a second show in Boston in 2010 and a third in San Antonio in 2015, making it the three largest gaming shows in North America. The first international PAX was held in Melbourne, Australia in 2013. In 2017, Penny Arcade announced PAX Unplugged, its first tabletop focused show, to be held in Philadelphia.
