E3 Exhibitors Announced

E3 Exhibitors Announced

The Exhibitors list for the 2007 E3 has been announced and the list is a fair amount shorter than in years past. In contrast to the recent IMGDC, don't expect to see any of the little guys on the list.

Don't expect to see John Q Publisher at the new E3 Media & Business Summit taking place this July. An exhibitor list has been unveiled to the media for the first time and it's dramatically smaller than what we're used to seeing. Still, it looks like the most important companies will be on hand.

E3 over the last few years became a major spectacle for the video game industry, with attendance in the range of 60,000 to 70,000 people and 400 or more companies exhibiting. When the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) announced the new format for E3, everyone knew it would be a much downscaled event, but the drop in the number of exhibitors is perhaps even greater than we expected.

Over the weekend, GameDaily BIZ and other media outlets received official invitations and access to a website with exhibitor information. According to the site for the new E3 Media & Business Summit (which takes place July 11-13), participating companies have fallen to just 32, although the list does include some of the top publishers and developers in the business.
