The Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) is an annual gamer festival held in Washington state, USA. PAX was created by Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik, the authors of the Penny Arcade webcomic, because they wanted to attend a show that gave equal attention to console gamers, computer gamers, and tabletop gamers.

Convention Tips

  • Apply Jakob Nielsen's usability guidelines. See also: Web Pages That Suck and Steve Krug's Don't Make Me Think.
  • Be specific when telling people what's been updated on your web site. "Website updated" is useless info to most.
  • Do not "auto-play" audio on your site. Co-workers don't need to know my plans for SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY!
  • Provide PDF files for documents that should be printed: registration forms, mailed documents, flyers, etc.
  • It isn't the Internet that's killing cons. BlizzCon (a con dedicated to a MMORPG) had 35,000 people attend in '08.
