Jerry Holkins, co-founder of PAX, Penny Arcade, and Child’s Play, expressed his excitement about the upcoming event:

PAX West is where it all began, so I’ll always have a special heart for this one. Plus, it’s about fifteen minutes from my house. It’s gone by many names – PAX Prime, even just plain old PAX at first. It’s been in many places, sometimes even multiple places at once. But we’ve put together a strong one this year and I can’t wait for you to see it.

Four-day PAX West 2023 badges are now available for $260.00 USD, while individual day passes are also available for $71.00 USD each. A preliminary schedule of all four days can be found HERE.
