The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) will remain in Los Angeles for the next three years according to the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), which owns E3. It was also confirmed that E3 2013 would take place June 11-13, 2013, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, L.A. LIVE and a plethora of venues throughout downtown Los Angeles and the City. I guess this finally puts to rest the rumors that E3 might be looking for a new home, well at least it does that for now. While I think that there are several places that E3 could be, Miami, Chicago, Dallas…L.A. is as good as any.
In 2012, E3 brought 45,700 video game industry professionals, investor analysts, journalists and retailers from 103 countries together for a three-day industry trade show that generated $40 million in revenue for Los Angeles. The three-year agreement with Los Angeles also ensures E3 will continue as scheduled alongside AEG’s plans for downtown Los Angeles, including development of the new Farmer’s Field.
Registration for attendees is not open, but additional details including registration, hotel and travel accommodations, and media credentialing, will be forthcoming and available at www.e3expo.com.
