PAX South announced for January

Penny Arcade Exposition comes to San Antonio

San Antonio, Texas will host another gaming convention from Penny Arcade starting next year: PAX South


The event is scheduled for January 23-25, 2015 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The firm revealed the news at PAX East over the weekend.

"Since its launch in 2004, PAX events have doubled in size almost every year, and our Seattle and Boston events represent the two largest gaming festivals in North America," Penny Arcade president Robert Khoo said in a statement. "We've been hearing for years that those in the south had a tough time making it to the northern corners of the country; PAX South has always been a matter of 'when' rather than 'if.'"

With the addition of PAX South, Penny Arcade will host four related expositions every year: PAX Prime in Seattle around September, PAX Australia in Melbourne around November, PAX South in San Antonio around January, and PAX East in Boston around April.

The series of events began in 2004 with the original Penny Arcade Expo, then called simply PAX. It expanded east to Boston in 2010, then to Australia in 2013.
