Exciting announcements revealing keynote speakers, exhibitors, and gaming partnerships will be announced soon. Badges for PAX East 2024 will be available for purchase starting Thursday, Nov. 16. Four-day badges will be available for $250, and single-day badges for $67.

“As we start into the twentieth year of PAX, PAX East is sure to set things off in a spectacular fashion,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder of Penny Arcade, Child’s Play, and PAX. “Years ago, we thought we’d never need a venue like Boston’s incredible BCEC. But gamers proved us wrong.”
