The Penny Arcade Expo, better known as PAX, has become a major fan convention and games industry event since starting in the Seattle area in 2004, spawning sister events around the country and on the other side of the world. Like every other American convention this year, however, the flagship PAX West convention in Seattle has been forced by COVID-19 to change things up.

Instead of sticking to the usual 4-day schedule, PAX’s organizers Penny Arcade and ReedPop are currently offering PAX Online, a nine-day, 24-hour revolving virtual convention, held as a combined show with the cancelled Eurogamer Expo (EGX) event in London. First announced on June 16, PAX Online combines live streams, chatroom panels, a Discord chat server, and downloadable game demos to provide a PAX-esque experience to attendees still stuck in quarantine, with a 24-hour events schedule for insomniacs and

“We kind of just threw this together,” Drew Ryan

Retribution Crashes WWE Raw Main Event, Attacks Drew McIntyre, Keith Lee and The Hurt Business

The main event of this week’s Monday Night Raw saw Keith Lee take on WWE Champion Drew McIntyre in what could have been a massive match. Earlier in the night, it was announced that — if Randy Orton was unable to compete at Clash of Champions — Lee would become the new No. 1 contender if he successfully defeated “The Scottish Psychopath.” Unfortunately, the match was thrown out before a winner could be chosen, as the masked group Retribution surrounded the ring and jumped both men. The four members of The Hurt Business, who signed on to be Raw’s security against the group earlier in the show, arrived on the scene and attacked the group.

McIntyre and Lee eventually regained consciousness and hit both factions with dives outside the ring. The show went off the air with everyone on the ground except the two babyfaces.

Two Things Every Virtual Event Must Get Right

Before the pandemic, live events made up a significant chunk of my business at Fast Company and Inc, particularly the tentpole gatherings of the Inc. 5000 Vision Conference and the Fast Company Innovation Festival. The pandemic has rocked that business. For perspective: One of the “brain trust,” who runs a professional organization anchored around global trade shows, reported that revenues for his first ever virtual show this spring, fell 96% compared with the previous year’s live version. If you rely on events, this pandemic ain’t no flu.

There is one bright spot. One of our group, who runs medical education conferences, is actually making the pivot to virtual work. Her conferences are matching pre-covid levels. Out of that encouraging result, I’ve drawn
