WASHINGTON – October 16, 2017 – Exhibit space at E3, the world’s premiere event for video games, is now available for the 2018 show. The Entertainment Software Association (ESA), the trade association that represents the US video game industry and owns and produces E3, today announced the opening of exhibit sales.
E3 2017 shattered expectations and ESA expects E3 2018 to do the same June 12-14 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. E3 2017 featured 300 exhibitors showcasing 2,000 products and more than 150 never-before-seen products.
Panels at E3 Coliseum 2017 connected gamers with celebrities and entertainment luminaries like Jack Black, Gennifer Hutchison, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Chris Hardwick, Kiki Wolfkill, and Hideo Kojima. Approximately 70,000 people attended the show and millions more around the world watched the week’s events online, together viewing 1,480 years’ worth of streaming content and fueling more than two million social media engagements.
Today, ESA also debuted a new E3 logo. For longtime E3 fans, the new logo has a familiar color scheme, but the design is updated for sharper performance on modern digital applications.
