E3 will return to the city of stars. The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has confirmed that the 2023 edition will be held in person in Los Angeles, United States. The Californian city's Convention Center will once again be the venue chosen to attract the video game industry during the second week of June, with no specific dates. It will maintain a hybrid model, offering opportunities for both in-person attendees and those at home.

The organization will have the collaboration of ReedPop, a veteran event production company. In their extensive track record, they have taken care of fairs such as PAX, New York Comic Conic Conic and the Star Wars Celebration. In a press release, ESA says they will bring together "the global video game industry forweek of titanic AAA reveals, earth-shaking world premieres and exclusive access to the future of video games"
The "secure" media registration request for E3 2023 will begin later this year. They reveal that participating companies, hotels, travel guides and event planning will be shared in the coming months through the official website, which you can visit at this link.
"It is a tremendous honor and privilege for ReedPop to take on the responsibility of bringing E3 back in 2023," states Lance Fensterman, president of the production company. "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 web sites."
What about Summer Game Fest 2023?
Faced with the news, Geoff Keighley has not hesitated to grab some of the spotlight. In a brief tweet he shares that his celebration event will also return in June 2023 "as a free digital and in-person event to celebrate the future of video games". He did not clarify in what form that in-person setting will be held, so everything is up in the air with less than a year to go until both events.
