After a three year absence, E3 will be returning in person with a new revamped four day event now dated for June 13 to June 16.

NOW READ: Holiday Deals now live on Amazon & Best Buy. Big brands such as Lenovo and Samsung are also starting to offer Holiday discounts early, with many more to follow.

As per the announcement, the expo will emanate from the Los Angeles Convention Center across the four days – and will now include separate days for professionals and the general public named Business Days and Gamer Days, respectively.

It’ll be the first event where the ESA are working with event operators ReedPop, who are behind other such events like PAX, EGX and New York Comic Con.

E3 2023 – event dates, Business Days & Gamer Days

E3 Business Days will take place on Tuesday, June 13 through until Thursday, June 15. This will be exclusively for registered industry professionals – with dedicated halls and spaces for media to get behind-closed doors looks at upcoming games.

Then, E3 Gamer Days will comprise the Thursday June 15 and Friday June 16 portion of the event. This will take place in a different hall than the industry stuff, and invites the public to get their hands on with the newest titles.

During the Gamer Days, there’ll be the “chance to connect with developers, content creators, media personalities and more”. There’ll also be a dedicated theatre, offering up “deep dive looks at highly anticipated titles.”

Those at home also have some stuff to look forward to, as the press release also mentions “partnered digital events” that will be taking place starting June 11.

E3 2023 – recent history and more

E3 2023 will mark the first in-person E3 event since 2019. The global coronavirus pandemic of course has seen the show go through a turbulent few years, causing the show to be cancelled altogether in 2020.

It came back of sorts as an online only show in 2021 – but then 2022 saw the event cancelled altogether once more as it still wasn’t considered safe enough to run a high profile event.

It’ll be interesting to see how much has changed in the interim – especially as in the absence of E3 many publisher-led digital shows have sprung up to take its place.

Most notably, Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest has been a huge presence in the absence of the regular E3.

There’s also the matter of ESA data breach in 2019 that saw thousands of journalists details leaked and brought into question their ability to run the show. The appointment of an experienced hand like ReedPop is almost certainly hoping to allay fears on that matter.
