PAX Aus 2023: A Celebration of Gaming
PAX Aus, the annual gaming convention held in Melbourne, Australia, is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2023. The event, which has become a staple for gamers in the region, will take place on October 6-8 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
To mark the occasion, the PAX Aus team has planned a celebration brimming with panels, concerts, tournaments, esports, special guests, meetups, cosplay, and more. There will also be a show floor featuring 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!”
Every year since the beginning, Non-Fiction Gaming has been pounding the pavement (and sometimes boardwalk) of PAX Aus. So when we say it’s an unmissable event, we know what we’re talking about.
