Over 200 exhibitors join a jam-packed show floor and busy schedule of events and panels
BOSTON – Feb. 8, 2024 – PAX co-show organizers ReedPop and Penny Arcade reveal the first list of exhibitors and panels coming to PAX East 2024, the East Coast’s most-attended gaming event returning to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center from Thursday, March 21, through Sunday, March 24, 2024.
The Pokémon Company, FINAL FANTASY XIV, Quantic Dream, IllFonic, and Larian Studios are among the many exhibitors ready to offer attendees hands-on opportunities with their most anticipated releases. Publishers Apogee Entertainment, Freedom Games, and Whitehorn Digital also take over the expo hall with dozens of indie games.
PAX East also features a variety of live events featuring fan-favorite content creators, game developers, and performers. Catch out the newest live chapter of Acquisitons Inc., important discussions about making the gaming industry more inclusive to marginalized communities, a fun fare-like session on the greatest food in games, and many more exciting AAA game panels to be revealed along with live concerts and shows in the evenings.
The expo hall will treat attendees with the return of PAX Arena, where content creators go head-to-head in intense esports tournaments. Stream Stars also returns with a revamped format and contestants competing for a $5,000 prize pool. Additionally, gaming communities can come together during meetups, as well as enjoy various live performances and free play areas.
"PAX East last year was a big one, and 2024 looks to top it," said Jerry Holkins, co-founder of Penny Arcade and PAX. "I can't wait to get the show's twentieth year underway."
PAX East badges are currently available for $250 for a 4-day badge, or $67 for single-day badges for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Media and content creators can apply for badges here before registration closes on Thursday, Feb. 15.

Connecting the world's leading game publishers with their most avid and influential fans, PAX expanded with a second show in Boston in 2010, and a third in San Antonio in 2015, making it the three largest gaming shows in North America.
