The Electronic Entertainment Expo, known as E3, is the largest business conference for video games in the United States and has been going on for 24 years. The 2019 Expo, held at the beginning of June, had approximately 66,000 people attend. This was a reduction in attendance from previous years. This was partially the result of key exhibitors such as Activision, Sony, and Electronic Arts not being on the show floor. E3 has ebbed and flowed over the years as companies carefully consider the impact their marketing dollars have when investing in booths. However, theres’s no doubt that E3 is the biggest and most famous show in the USA and draws a lot of attention from fans and press around the world.
