E3 will definitely be back next year, according to a new press release shared by the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), the organizers behind the popular trade event, which can confirm that the show will make its “long-awaited return to the Los Angeles Convention Center in the second week of June, 2023.”
One of the more significant changes this year is the involvement of ReedPop, the veteran production company behind PAX, New York Comic Con, and Star Wars Celebration, which was held in Anaheim in May and featured star-studded panels with the likes of Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen, among other notable actors. The ESA has partnered with ReedPop to help produce next year’s E3 expo.
Gamers who tune into E3 can expect a week of “titanic AAA reveals, earth-shaking world premieres, and exclusive access to the future of video games,” according to the ESA, while Kyle Marsden-Kish, ReedPop’s Global VP of Gaming, has promised a “recognizably epic” experience and a “return to form” for the video game industry’s best-known trade event. Digital showcases and “in-person consumer components” will also be among the highlights of next year’s show.
“It is a tremendous honor and privilege for ReedPop to take on the responsibility of bringing E3 back in 2023,” said Lance Fensterman, President of ReedPop. “With the support and endorsement of the ESA, we’re going to build a world class event to serve the global gaming industry in new and broader ways than we already do at ReedPop through our portfolio of world leading events and web sites.”
A streamlined and secure media registration for E3 2023 will begin in late 2022. Confirmed exhibitors, hotel and travel guides, event schedules, and more will be shared in the months to come via media releases and the official E3 website. Media, creators, industry professionals, and fans are encouraged to visit this website often for updates, and to follow E3 on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
E3 is the world’s premier event for computer and video games and related products. The show is owned and operated by the ESA, the US trade association dedicated to serving the business and public affairs needs of the companies developing and publishing interactive games for video game consoles, handheld devices, personal computers, and the internet.
