PAX East Update

The entire PAX community wants to express our concern for everyone impacted by the COVID-
19 virus. The gaming community is a global one and our hearts go out to every person and
family affected.

PAX East 2020 will take place as scheduled with enhanced cleaning and sanitization across the
show, including adhering to the recommendations set forth in the U.S. EPA’s Emerging
Pathogen Policy regarding cleaning disinfectants effective against the COVID-19 virus. We are
working closely with the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and following local, state
and federal public health guidelines, including those issued by the CDC. For more
information on those measures and the virus, please visit the PAX East travel page and the
MCCA website.

While we are saddened that Sony will no longer have a presence at PAX East 2020, we look
forward to welcoming our friends at Sony to future PAX events and are focused on making PAX
East 2020 a successful and enjoyable event for all attendees and exhibitors.

The well-being of everyone at PAX - from our attendees and exhibitors to our staff on-site at
every show - is of the utmost importance to ReedPOP and Penny Arcade. Across the more than
50 total PAX events around the world, we have provided a positive environment for over one
million attendees to celebrate gaming. We will continue to work diligently to ensure PAX East
2020 and our other events live up to our high standards and we will proactively keep you up to
date with any further developments as we get closer to PAX East 2020.
