ESA Confirms Los Angeles Will Host E3 Through 2015
L.A. and the ESA should have a celebrity couple name.
The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has confirmed that Los Angeles will be the site of the Electronic Entertainment Expo. In the same breath, they have also announced that E3 2013 is scheduled for June 11-13, 2013 at the Los Angeles Convention Center and other venues throughout downtown L.A.
“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.
The scorecard from E3 2012 shows the convention generating over $40 million in revenue for the City of Angels, a number that L.A. Mayor, Antonion Villaraigosa, doesn't take lightly.
"The City of Los Angeles is thrilled to welcome E3 back for another three years," Villaraigosa said. "My office was committed to doing whatever it took to keep the largest annual conference that the City hosts here for another three years."
