PAX Aus 2023 tix go on sale – celebrating 10 years of bringing the gaming community together

Greetings, traveller! Pull up a chair and listen. The year was 2013. Tomb Raider made a triumphant return with a reboot of the ‘96 classic, tabletop players embarked on a journey to protect the world from an Ancient One in Eldritch Horror, The Last of Us hit PlayStation consoles and no one had heard of Pedro Pascal, and it was the first year PAX Aus opened its doors (in the pouring rain… in a tent), welcoming Australian gamers.

Celebrating 10 years of bringing the gaming community together, PAX Aus 2023 is not to be missed! The PAX Aus community will once again be welcomed home on October 6-8th to celebrate everything we love about gaming at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (a far cry from the tent!).  As we work to bring you the best, badges for PAX Aus 2023 will be available to purchase from midday AEDT on March 21st here. Early Bird 3-Day badges will be limited and available for $175 and Early Bird Single Day badges for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will be available for $70.

With a decade of PAX Aus-ing, this year’s event will be a celebration brimming with panels, concerts, tournaments, esports, special guests, meetups, cosplay and lots more, plus a show floor highlighting the best that the Australian gaming community has to offer.

Event Director, Lauren Luciani, said, “PAX is always special, but this year is particularly meaningful as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of this incredible event. Time flies when you’re having fun and that is certainly true of getting to work on PAX Aus. The whole PAX team is dedicated and passionate about bringing the community a PAX Aus to remember!”

PAX Aus is the show stopping three-day conclusion to Melbourne International Games Week (MIGW), taking over the whole of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, and welcoming tens of thousands of gamers to their ultimate celebration.

Whether you’re a DnD wizard, obsessed with Indies or addicted to Battle Royale, there is something that will appeal to every gaming enthusiast at PAX Aus.

So, Happy 10th anniversary to us! RSVP here and we’ll see you there!
