It’s been announced that PAX will indeed be going international for the first time ever, and that PAX Australia will take place in Melbourne next year, starting July 19th and ending July 21st. PAX Australia will be held in Melbourne in 2014 as well.
“It is a great opportunity to showcase games culture in Australia to the rest of the world,” said Victoria’s Minister for Innovation, Louise Asher “and the exposure around the region and the world that Melbourne’s games industry will gain from the event, and the number of international and domestic visitors that will be drawn to Melbourne, cannot be underestimated.”
PAX President Robert Khoo said: “Melbourne has a long history of supporting the games scene, though showcasing cultural game exhibits to supporting world renowned game developers. Holding PAX Australia in Melbourne is the perfect fit for our show.”
More details will be announced soon. Stay tuned.
