PAX Returning As Physical Venue in 2022

PAX Is Back in 2022


PAX 2022 | Featured

Today marks good news for fans of physical conventions. PAX has announced that they’ll be returning as physical venues for two different conventions in 2022. First off is PAX Unplugged, which will take place in the Philadelphia Convention Center. It will focus on wireless gaming, such as boardgames and card games. That’ll happen from Friday, December 10th to Sunday, December 12th. The other event we can report on today is PAX East. It’ll be the standard PAX event videogame fans have come to expect, and will take place in the Boston Convention Center from Thursday, April 21st to Sunday, April 24th.

While that’s very good to hear, what’s even better is that both events, and all future PAX shows, will mandate proof of vaccination and mandatory face coverings. That sadly wasn’t the case for the recently held PAX West, at least not at first. Which is why some didn’t feel it was safe to attend, myself included. As much as we all hate having to wear masks these days, it’s good to know that now the show is putting our health above profits. Better safe than sorry, I always say.

PAX Unplugged | Gathering

If you’re interested in attending either of the PAX events, here’s some more details. You can currently get PAX Unplugged 3-day badges for $75, whereas single day badges go for $35 each. As for PAX East, badge pricing and availability will be announced in the near future. You can find out more details at the East and Unplugged sites. And be sure to stay tuned to HPP for more news about upcoming PAX events.
