The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) had 45,700 industry personnel in attendance for the 2012 show. The Entertainment Software Association (ESA), the trade organization that puts on the annual mega show, estimated E3 generated 30,000 total hotel room bookings and nearly $40 million in revenue for the city.
The ESA, for the first time in years, did not announce next year's host city nor show dates at the end of the expo. The group is currently in a little spat
with the city over assurances that the show will run efficiently during next year's construction of the Farmers Field stadium
