The ESA has confirmed that E3 will remain in the city of Los Angeles for at least the next three years, with next year’s show taking place from “June 11-13, 2013, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, L.A. LIVE and a plethora of venues throughout downtown Los Angeles and the City.”
The annual video game trade show is a huge gathering for the industry and a big media event too. But the city of Los Angeles plans extensive renovations to convention center facility in order to accommodate a new sports stadium. As recently as last month the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), which puts on the E3 show, had indicated that it might leave Los Angeles all together unless they received assurances on a number of issues ranging from square footage to signage.
