El mundo de la hospitalidad interactiva ha cambiado desde que E3Expo fue creado hace 12 años.

"sobre los años, ha llegado a estar claro que necesitamos un programa m?s ?ntimo, incluyendo un di?logo m?s de alta calidad, m?s personal con los medios mundiales, los reveladores, los minoristas y otras audiencias de la industria dominante." El E3Expo nuevo tomar? forma durante los varios meses pr?ximos. Previsto tan actualmente, inm?vil ocurrir? en Los ?ngeles, descrito por ESA como "un helping grande y de apoyo del socio construir E3." Se centrar? en acontecimientos de la prensa y reuniones pequeñas con medios, venta al por menor, el desarrollo, y otros sectores dominantes. Mientras que habr? oportunidades para las demostraciones del juego, E3Expo 2007 no ofrecer? el ambiente grande de la demostraci?n comercial de años anteriores. "E3Expo sigue siendo un acontecimiento importante para la industria y deseamos guardar ese sentido del entusiasmo y del inter?s, asegur?ndose de que los recursos humanos y financieros cruciales a su ?xito se pueden desplegar productivo para crear un nuevo formato emocionante para resolver las necesidades de la industria. El nuevo acontecimiento se asegura de que haya una manera eficaz y m?s eficiente para que las compañ?as consigan la informaci?n a los medios, a los consumidores, y a otros, "dijo Lowenstein.

Entertainment Software Association Announces Evolution of E3Expo for 2007

Washington, DC (July 31, 2006) – To better address the needs of today’s global computer and video game industry, the 2007 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3Expo) is evolving into a more intimate event focused on targeted, personalized meetings and activities, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) announced today. 

“The world of interactive entertainment has changed since E3Expo was created 12 years ago.  At that time we were focused on establishing the industry and securing orders for the holiday season,” said Douglas Lowenstein, President of the ESA, the trade association representing U.S. computer and video game publishers and the owner of E3Expo.  “Over the years, it has become clear that we need a more intimate program, including higher quality, more personal dialogue with the worldwide media, developers, retailers and other key industry audiences.”

 The new E3Expo will take shape over the next several months.  As currently envisioned, it will still take place in Los Angeles, described by ESA as a “great and supportive partner helping to build E3.”  It will focus on press events and small meetings with media, retail, development, and other key sectors.  While there will be opportunities for game demonstrations, E3Expo 2007 will not feature the large trade show environment of previous years. 

“E3Expo remains an important event for the industry and we want to keep that sense of excitement and interest, ensuring that the human and financial resources crucial to its success can be deployed productively to create an exciting new format to meet the needs of the industry. The new event ensures that there will be an effective and more efficient way for companies to get information to media, consumers, and others,” said Lowenstein.

 Additionally, the evolution of the video game industry into a vibrant and expanding global market has led to the creation of major events in different regions, such as the Games Convention in Leipzig, the Tokyo Game Show, and company-specific events held by Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft, and others around the world.  As a result, Lowenstein said, “It is no longer necessary or efficient to have a single industry ‘mega-show’.  By refocusing on a highly-targeted event, we think we can do a better job serving our members and the industry as a whole, and our members are energized about creating this new E3.” 

Additional details about the new E3Expo event will be forthcoming in the next few months.
