Attendees up, exhibitors down at E3 2014

"The video game industry's explosive growth and technological innovation were front and centre"

E3 has just ended, and the ESA has already revealed that attendees number were up on last year, but exhibitor numbers actually fell.

The show saw 48,900 visitors this year, compared to 48,200 in 2013. There were 200 exhibitors this year, compared to 230 exhibitors last year.

"The video game industry's explosive growth and technological innovation were front and centre at E3 2014," said owner and manager of E3 Michael D. Gallagher.

"Video games are the most innovative and engaging force driving our culture and entertainment experiences the world over. Congratulations to our incredibly creative members, partners, exhibitors, and the hundreds of millions of gamers who engaged with the show online and through social media."

According to the ESA statement visitors to the event booked 28,000 total hotel room nights across LA and generated almost $40 million in revenue.

The ESA also set the date for E3 2015, so mark your diaries for June 16-18.
