PAX itself, spawned from a love of all things gaming, and first presented a convention to celebrate gaming culture in Bellevue, Washington. The exhibition doubled in since year after year, and soon expanded into Seattle and Boston. PAX travelled land and sea in 2013 to launch PAX Australia, which is now a yearly event that takes place at the Melbourne Convention Centre.
