PAX West 2023 Content Submissions

Thanks for your interest in submitting content to PAX West 2023! PAX West will take place Friday, September 1 - Monday, September 4 in Seattle, Washington. The content submissions deadline is Monday, June 12.

If you have any questions about the content submission process, please email

We're looking for content submissions that talk about every aspect of gaming; from gaming culture, to game development, to the games industry itself and everything in between - games shows, speed runs, etc! PAX is accepting content submission in 2 formats:
1. Panels: Each panel will be scheduled to run 60 minutes in length. The room will be setup in the traditional theatre style - with a stage with tables and chairs for the panelists at the front of the room, and rows of chairs for the attendee audience. Each panel room will also be equipped with table mics, at least 1 Q&A mic, a sound system, and an HDMI-compatible projector.

2. Workshops: Professional workshop submission will be 90 minutes in length. Each workshop room will come with the same equipment as a panel room: a stage with tables and chairs for panelists, table mics, at least 1 Q&A mic, a sound system, and an HDMI-compatible projector. However, attendees will be seated at round tables to facilitate group learning and collaboration.

Here are a few things to to keep in mind when creating your content submission:
*Be passionate about your topic!
*Have a unique, detailed perspective. Tell us your vision! (there's extra space below if it doesn't fit in the panel description box).
*Have a diverse group of panelists. Seen someone on another panel and want to work with them? Check your moots - you might have a connection!
*Invite energetic panelists who are experts in their respective fields.
*Have a plan for your presentation. Want to talk about chickens in RPGs? Been there, popular talk. Give us an idea what you're going to say about it.

If you're new to submitting content to PAX (or just need a refresher), here's a sample content submission!

Title: Analog Games with Digital Platforms

Content Description: Recent years have shown a Renaissance of tabletop gaming, something noticed by the video game industry. Obvious examples are games like Settlers of Catan on Xbox or Ticket to Ride on iOS, but this trend goes far beyond just strong ports of great games.
There's all sorts of ways your electronic devices can enhance your board game experience, and more tools come out seemingly every day. Whether you want to play a transcontinental game of Dungeons+Dragons, or just take some of the complexities out of modern board games, our panel of longtime gamers will go through some of the best tools available to level up your board game night and make the most of all resources available.
Before submitting members of the panel, make sure all of your panelists are 80% interested in taking part. Look, we know things happen, but they should at least be aware that (1) you're submitting a panel with their name as a panelist and (2) the dates of the event. Panelists' names can also be adjusted later on. We recommend no more than six panelists including the moderator. More than six, and the discussion can get confusing and each panelists might not have enough time to speak.
