|What is PAX East?|
PAX East was founded in 2010 out of a growing demand for PAX, which stands for Penny Arcade Expo. The original PAX Prime was founded in 2004 by Penny Arcade as a strictly gaming show and saw its attendance double every year. The series of shows is dedicated to the gaming culture and community. In 2010, the East Coast show was launched in Boston, Massachusetts to satisfy the growing demand and over 10,000 people attended the first year. Since its inception, PAX Prime and Pax East have grown to become the largest annual gaming shows in North America.
The PAX East event features panels, "nerdcore" concerts, large exhibit halls full of publishers and developers displaying their latest developments and release, a handheld gaming lounge, a PC gaming area, a tabletop gaming area, and a gaming console area.
