After several days of social media teases, PAX Aus confirmed yesterday that it will return to Melbourne as a live, in-person event. The convention will return to its long-time home at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and will run from October 8-10.
As of this writing, tickets are limited. This is due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in place at the MCEC regarding crowd sizes. The hope is that there are no major outbreaks between now and October. If this is the case, crowd restrictions will be eased. With each restriction easement, further tickets can be released.
Enough with the teasing, we are very excited to announce that PAX Australia will be back in 2021 as a live event, just as you remember it!

PAX Aus also says interstate attendees will have their tickets refunded if things change. This includes no longer being able to travel due to quarantine restrictions or border closures. Clearly, there’s no way to know what the COVID-19 situation will be by the time we reach October. All being well, the show will be free to go ahead as normal.
And that’ll be a bloody good weekend indeed.
