E3 will return in 2009

Chris Scott Barr - Jul 23, 2008

This year’s E3 was nothing short of pathetic in comparison to the previous years. This has left many analysts and influential industry leaders wondering whether or not the show should, or even will continue. As it turns out, the ESA is determined to give it at least one more go. Check out the official quote from the ESA.

As we do every year, we’re beginning the process of surveying exhibitors and attendees to determine potential changes to the Summit,” the representative said. “Once this is completed and shared with the ESA’s Board of Directors, we will make an announcement about the specifics of the 2009 E3 Media & Business Summit, which will occur.

I honestly think that after two straight years of E3 failure, it’s going to be tough for them to really get people excited about it again. I think for the industry to really take it seriously again, they need to go back to the way things were, when they had crowds of over 60,000 people, and of course, booth babes.
