Overview

The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is considered the most important event in the gaming industry each year. It has undergone many changes in recent years, but continues to be a meeting place for the industry's publishers, developers, retailers, and press. E3 is a trade show, meaning that it is not open to the general public. Although, getting access has only been difficult in 2007 and 2008 when the show became invitation only. Prior to the introduction of E3, the games industry used the Consumer Electronic Show as a venue for presenting upcoming products and titles. But in 1995, the Interactive Digital Software Association, the company who established the Entertainment Software Rating Board a year prior, decided it was time for the games industry to have its own massive showcase. So they rented out the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles, California, and E3 was born.
