Since 1995, the Electronic Entertainment Expo has been mostly held in Los Angeles, and a deal has been reached for three more years.Earlier concerns about floor space and nearby construction caused the ESA, who hosts the show, to look elsewhere. But things have been worked out, and E3 will stay right at home for the show’s 20th anniversary.
“ESA’s commitment to remain in Los Angeles is a critical endorsement of Los Angeles as one of the nation’s most important convention destinations. Working with ESA to provide the confidence in scheduling they have requested has truly been a collaborative effort. We are also grateful to ESA for their thoughtful input into the design plans which will result in the most efficient and modern facilities that will not only benefit E3 but all of the new conventions that will come to Los Angeles. On behalf of our City and AEG, thank you ESA, we won’t let you down.” –Timothy J. Leiweke, President & CEO, AEG
The 2013 show will be different, however. It will still be held in the L.A. Convention Center, but will also be spread across L.A. Live and several other venues across the city. Next year’s show will take place June 11-13, and we’ll be there. Just look for the biggest grin you can find, it’s probably us.
