PAX West 2020 Will Go On As Planned

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused numerous events to be affected, but that’s not stopping PAX West 2020, which will be held in Seattle, from going ahead for now.

In a blog post, they wrote that they were “still planning on putting together a great PAX West this coming Labor Day Weekend (4 to 7 September 2020) for you, and we will be updating our website with more information on badges and hotel registration in the coming months”.

They added:

“Our first priority is always your safety, and that extends to issues of public health.

As the year progresses, we will continue to monitor the situation and work with health officials at all levels of government, and intend to follow all CDC and WHO guidelines as they are released.

That said, actions already taken by our convention centre and local government have left us optimistic, and we will continue working with them to make sure we take the correct steps throughout the summer.”

It’s good to know that they’re keeping an eye on things and are communicating with health officials, but it’s still rather surprising to me. Honestly, I’m expecting it to be postponed, cancelled, or moved online at some point, but we’ll see. It’s been an unpredictable year, after all.
