The Crossroads of Asian Pop Culture

Pacific Media Expo (PMX) is a new generation of convention for a new generation of fans! PMX brings the cutting edge of Asian entertainment to America, whether it is the newest anime from Japan, the hottest bands from the Pacific Rim, or the most creative fusion of sports and martial arts in Hong Kong history. PMX seeks to create an entertainment community for artists, industry, and their fans.

Things to See and Do at PMX

  • Admire the beautiful artwork on display at the Daisuke Moriyama Exhibit, and bid on "one of a kind" items in our Charity Auction.
  • Watch an energetic performance by our "Talagang Crazy" Comedian Guest of Honor Rex Navarrete, or move to the music of our annual Concert Series.
  • Shop till you drop in our Exhibit Hall and enjoy the diversity of art and media in our Artists Market, then relax in our Gamers Lounge, and see an Airsoft or Martial Arts demonstration.
  • Bring a camera! Fans roam our halls in costume, and many of them enjoy being photographed when they are not strutting their stuff on stage in our Cosplay Festival.
  • Be educated and entertained in one of our many Panel or Workshop presentations. See your favorite artists and musicians in person. Hear them speak about their work, answer questions, and even offer autographs!
  • Whet your appetite for the latest in imported Asian video, with our Anime and Asian Cinema programming tracks.
  • At night, enjoy Dining and Entertainment just across the street at The Pike, or sing your heart out for fun and prizes in our Karaoke room.

Pacific Media Expo is hosted by the Pacific Media Association, Inc.
