The ESA has confirmed that after a three year hiatus, E3 will return to Los Angeles in the second week of June in 2023. The E3 in-person event will take place in partnership with ReedPop, the organisers behind conventions such as Pax, New York Comic Con and Star Wars Celebration.
The event will return as a mostly industry focused even with publishers, developers, journalists, content creators and more to be in attendance. It will also feature digital components as well as an in-person consumer component.
“We are thrilled to bring back E3 as an in-person event with ReedPop, a global leader in producing pop culture events,” said ESA president and CEO Stanley Pierre-Louis.
“The past three years have confirmed that E3 convenes our industry like no other event. ReedPop brings world-class talent and a keen understanding of the video game industry, which will serve to enhance the E3 experience for years to come.”
ReedPop president Lance Fensterman added: “It is a tremendous honor and privilege for ReedPop to take on the responsibility of bringing E3 back in 2023. 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 websites.”
We don’t have specific dates yet, outside of that June period, and it’ll be very interesting to see how many of the big publishers get behind E3, as no doubt it will try to become the juggernaut event that it once was.
We're back! ?#E32023 will take place in June at the Los Angeles Convention Center— with new partner ReedPop (the folks behind @PAX!)
