It’s about time EB Expo stepped it up. As one of the Southern Hemisphere’s largest conventions, it’s teaming up with PAX Aus for a magnificent event.
PAX Aus 2017 was absolutely epic. If you weren’t able to make it, we covered it here (plenty of photos for you to see).
PAX Aus x EB Expo
This year, PAX Aus will be hosting EB Expo. That’s right! Two massive events in one because why not? Here’s what you’ll find at EB Expo (at PAX) this year:
- Dedicated area for publishers to showcase titles
- Dev presentations in the EB Expo Live Theatre
- Australia’s largest pop-up EB Games store
Jono Whyman, the Event Manager of PAX Aus had this to say about the two events coming together:
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.
-Jono Whyman, Event Manager of PAX Aus
Debra McGrath, EB Games Event Director also had this to say about the event:
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.
Together, with the full support of the Australian publisher community, the IGEA and Creative Victoria we are committed to creating an event that gives Australians the experience they deserve.
-Debra McGrath, EB Games Event Director
