Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) - Washington State Convention & Trade Center - Seattle, Washington

PAX 2010 is a three-day game festival for tabletop, videogame, and PC gamers. We call it a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas we've got nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, the weekend-long Omegathon event, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers. Even with all this amazing content, the best part of PAX is meeting with other people who know their stuff when it comes to games.

For more information, visit the PAX Web site.
