PAX Australia 2016… What an event.
Three jam-packed days of console freeplay, virtual reality, live music, exhibitions and stalls, cosplay entertainment, live panels, web series with world-class developers, handheld gaming sessions, pub crawls and a whole lot of mingling with like-minded gamers.
Networks were made, tips and tricks were shared and – most importantly – games were played!
We took 500 of our premium gaming chairs to the event, placing them in all of the tournament areas, arenas, and freeplay areas for gamers to use. They were a massive hit – so much so that we were completely sold out at the end of the 3 days!
This fellow gamer was pretty happy with our salesman Ben – and his free pair of socks:
@zqracing @PAXAus this guy is the reason I bought the chair, most amazing salesman ever! He also gave me free socks ? pic.twitter.com/iS6mlrvdao

Ultra.Super.Mega Gaming Community Site Owner Peter Wilkinson also gave us a pretty sweet shout out on his recently published podcast.
“ZQ Racing chairs… I just found them so bloody comfortable. I think everyone did.”
“They’re premium products – which they definitely did feel.”
“I sat my mate down in one, he bought one, then I sat another mate down in one and he bought two.”

A little bit about PAX Australia, for those who don’t know…
PAX Australia is the premier gaming convention held annually at the Melbourne Convention Centre. Starting as a small 4,500 person event in Washington back in 2004, PAX expanded into an international event in 2013 when it came to Australia. It is now a yearly event which draws tens of thousands of gaming fans (like us!) together.
