What is PAX West?

Penny Arcade Expo, now lovingly known as PAX, is one of the largest gaming conventions in the U.S. Started in 2004, Penny Arcade wanted to create a show exclusively for games and gaming culture. The show originated in Bellevue before making it around the world to cities like Boston, San Antonio, Philadelphia, and Melbourne, Australia! It is known for having plenty of activities such as Freeplay areas, gaming tournaments, LAN parties, concerts, celebrity and industry panels, and an Exhibition Hall. No matter the platform, there is a place for all gamers at PAX West.

When and Where is PAX West 2022?

PAX West is exclusively located in Seattle, Washington. This year, the event will be hosted at the Seattle Convention Center from September 2nd to September 5th. The show starts at 10 am every day and ends at midnight all days except Monday.

Did you catch  HYTE and iBUYPOWER at our partnered booths? We teamed up with AMD in the Exhibition Hall at Booth #617 to bring sweet giveaways and an exciting gaming tournament. Thanks to our friends at AMD, we gave the community a chance to win hardware, exclusive Peepo Plushies, stickers, and a gaming PC!

We also held a spot with Intel at Booth #2301, where we ran streams and giveaways all weekend alongside major streamers! Various games from Destiny 2 to League of Legends took a spotlight, including a demo of Hoyoverse’s highly anticipated game, Honkai: Star Rail. HYTE also hosted small community events on the floor in celebration of our 1 year anniversary.

What did we do at PAX West 2022?

  • Happy Birthday, HYTE!

    • Can you believe it? It's already been 1 year of HYTE! We're so happy to have celebrated our first birthday with our amazing partners, influencers, and fans at PAX West. We also shared some delicious HYTE-themed cupcakes in celebration of our first year. Here's to many more! 
  • Keyboard Meetup

    • We had a number of custom mechanical keyboards displayed in our streaming pod and got to see some of your guys' clean builds as well! Our good friend Apiarykeyboards also joined us at the pod to build a mechanical keyboard AND a Y60 PC. Shout out to ASUS ROG for sending us the EVA parts to create this amazing build with Apiary.
