Sydney, Australia – May 9, 2014 – The ReedPOP run event Penny Arcade Expo Australia (PAX AUS) took top honours in two categories at the 2014 MCV Pacific Awards. 

 

The event, sponsored by PlayStation and the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association, recognises excellence in all sectors of the games industry in Australia and New Zealand. The 2014 Awards were held on Thursday, May 8, at Sydney's premier venue, The Ivy.

 

In recognition of a fantastic Australian debut event in Melbourne in 2013, Australian games industry voters awarded PAX AUS 'Best Single Brand Engagement' and 'Best Community Engagement’. 

 

ReedPOP Event Director Bernadette Neumann commented on the win. “It’s fantastic to be recognised and rewarded by the local games industry, and a great validation of the hard work and dedication of the team that worked on the show.”

 

The wins pave the way for an even bigger show later this year. PAX AUS will be moving to the larger Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre and will be held from October 31st to November 2nd, 2014. With this venue change PAX AUS will have tripled the size of its theatre space, and there are exciting plans in the works for more international content and personalities to attend the show.
