Plans for replacement E3 event scrapped

October 19th, 2006 · No Comments

The Consumer Electronics Association, producer of the International Consumer Electronics Show (aka CES), has decided against adding a games expo to its events calendar.
The restructuring of the video games expo E3 led the CEA to express interest in picking up a 2007 gaming event. Karen Chupka, the CEA’s senior vice president of events and conferences, says that “although CEA was prepared to launch a new event, the recent announcement by ESA that it would open its event to both ESA and non-ESA members and would include PC and wireless gaming, led us to conclude that a new spring West Coast event would likely not serve the best needs of the industry. At this point, we will continue dialog with the industry to determine if the need for a broader gaming event exists for 2008.”
Instead, she confirmed that the January CES event would introduce a new Gaming TechZone for interested exhibitors.
