After 2022 was completely canceled, one of the most important gaming fairs will return next year. On Monday, the Entertainment Software Association announced that E3 2023 will be held June 13-16 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, with the event opening to the public on June 15. There will also be partner showcases ahead of the actual show starting on June 11th.
Before announcing last year’s cancellation, ESA had planned to host an all-digital event but later changed course. At the time, the organization said it would devote its resources to delivering a “revitalized physical and digital E3 experience” next summer. For next year’s show, ESA has enlisted the help of ReedPop, a company with experience organizing events such as PAX, EGX and Star Wars Celebration.
The 2023 trade fair will be an important one for ESA. Even before the pandemic, E3 had lost its relevance as companies like Sony decided not to attend. In many ways, ESA has yet to regain the trust of the industry after accidentally meeting more than 2,000 journalists, analysts and content creators that same year.
