Despite rumours that the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) would possibly shift locations next year, it’s now been confirmed that the Los Angeles Convention Center will continue to host the show on June 11-13, 2013 and for the following two years.
“We are proud to partner with Los Angeles for another three years. The City serves as a strong backdrop for the video game industry’s biggest announcements and we look forward to remaining in LA,” said Michael D. Gallagher, CEO of the ESA, which represents U.S. video game industry. “Video games are a dominant force in the global entertainment marketplace and there is no better place to display that than Los Angeles. We look forward to continuing our relationship with the City and AEG.”
E3 2012 was attended by 45,700 industry professionals and was reported to have generated $40 million in revenue for the city.
