Penny Arcade Expo dates for 2009 have been announced and pre-registration opened.

PAX 2009 will take place September 4-6 at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center in Seattle.

It’s going to be massive this year, so get involved now.

“Every year, we essentially double our attendance, but let me say right now that’s not happening for 2009,” said Penny Arcade’s Robert Khoo.

“We’ve rented every square foot in the center and it still won’t be enough. The facility has requested that we not exceed capacity, so we’re going to be closely monitoring the number of badges we sell this year.

“But, fear not. Our goal is the same as ever: to offer a world-class show to all attendees, focusing on amazing content and experiences for the truly hardcore.”

Last year’s keynote was given by Ken Levine, but there’s no word yet on who will deliver it this year.
