E3 will also not have a face-to-face edition in 2022: it will be held only online

Although there are still a few months to celebrate the E3, since it is usually celebrated in June, your organization has decided that it will also be held in virtual format in 2022, as in 2021, due to the increase in COVID-19 cases caused by the Omicron variant. The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has made this decision due to the uncertainty about the situation, which makes it difficult for planners and organizers of large events to organize large events with thousands of attendees.

Thus, the ESA has issued a statement, in which according to Venture Beat has stated that «Due to the health risks related to COVID-19 and its potential impact on exhibitor and attendee safety, E3 will not be held in person in 2022. We are very excited about the future of E3 and look forward to announcing more details soon.«. A typical edition of E3 covers everything related to gaming software, as well as the sector of consoles and other types of digital entertainment and entertainment.

Meanwhile, the CES is about to finish its face-to-face edition, which on the one hand has been in the news weeks even before it was held, due to the cancellations of technology and media and their refusal to attend the fair in person. Its organizers have even had to reduce its duration by one day in face-to-face format, and instead of ending on the 8th it ends today the 7th. Perhaps this, which has given CES 2022 quite a bad image, has led ESA to make the decision to cancel the in-person edit of your event, thereby avoiding these situations.

A typical edition of E3 would gather between 60,000 and 70,000 people at the fair’s facilities, in addition to several hundred exhibitors. In the last one, its last face-to-face edition, held in 2019, there were 66,000 attendees. Meanwhile, the Game Developers Conference (Game Developers Conference), another of the main events in the video game industry, plans to hold this year’s edition, from March 21 to 25, in person.
