The king of all in-person gaming events, E3, is coming back in all its glory next year. Recently, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and the event’s new organisers, Reedpop, confirmed that E3 is all set to happen from June 13 to June 16 2023, once again at the iconic Los Angeles Convention Center (LACC). From going all virtual to event cancellations altogether, the Electronic Entertainment Expo saw its popularity take a hit when Covid-19 struck the world and its presence has been missed dearly by all.
With countries all over the world now going back to normal, E3 2023 is looking to make a giant comeback. The release states that E3 2023 will witness the return of publishers, developers, journalists, content creators, manufacturers, buyers, and licensors while also concentrating on digital showcases and in-person consumer events.
During the announcement, Lance Fensterman, President of ReedPop, stated, “It is a tremendous honour and privilege for ReedPop to take on the responsibility of bringing E3 back in 2023. With the support and endorsement of the ESA, we’re going to build a world-class event to serve the global gaming industry in new and broader ways than we already do at ReedPop through our portfolio of world-leading events and websites.”
The Hype starts now. 👀#E32023 will take place in person from June 13-16 in the Los Angeles Convention Center with separated business and consumer days and areas.

As mentioned, E3 2023 will take place across four days and is split into what’s being dubbed “Business Days” and “E3 Gamer Days.” The first two days, i.e. June 13 to 14, will be the Business Days devoted solely to the games industry and media personnel, allowing them to connect with the devs, go hands-on with upcoming releases and catch up with people. Then, starting Thursday, June 15 to Friday, June 16, the event will be open to all the public and the fans. The so-called “E3 Gamer Days” will allow fans and the general public to check out new and upcoming games, and meet and greet with industry and media personalities. Furthermore, during these days, there’s also a dedicated theatre planned for all ticket holders, which will give audiences a glimpse at some of the future/upcoming releases.
All things considered, it’s really great to see E3 return in a much grander way than ever before and we can’t wait to see what the event will have in store. ReedPop’s Global VP of Gaming, Kyle Marsden-Kish, who is also in charge of the freshly created E3 team said “For years, we’ve listened, heard, and studied the global gaming community’s feedback. E3 2023 will be recognisably epic—a return to form that honours what’s always worked – while reshaping what didn’t and setting a new benchmark for video game expos in 2023 and beyond.” Fingers crossed!
