The Ziff Davis Game Group announces its media sponsorship of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) on May 14-16, 2003, the second year in a row the Ziff Davis Game Group has sponsored the Expo. As part of the sponsorship, the editorial team of the Game Group will produce the E3 Show Daily, the publication that reports the ongoing developments, deals, launches and breaking news of each day of the Expo.

This annual video and computer game industry event by the Interactive Digital Software Association (IDSA) attracts tens of thousands of attendees, 450 exhibitors and more than 1,000 product debuts -- making it the largest and most influential interactive entertainment gathering in the world.

Editorial Director John Davison and his team of editors from Electronic Gaming Monthly, Official PlayStation Magazine, Computer Gaming World, GameNow, Xbox Nation, and GMR will bring their extensive game reporting experience and unique style to the E3 Show Daily. They will create an entertaining, daily newspaper, making it essential reading for the thousands of attendees to stay on top of the latest developments in gaming. In their first year of producing the Show Daily, the edit team was awarded first place honors in the International Association for Exhibition Management's (IAEM) 2002 Art of the Show awards for the trade show daily category.

According to Lee Uniacke, Group publisher of the Ziff Davis Media Game Group, "We are thrilled to be such an integral part of the most important show for the video game industry. This award is a testament to our commitment to the IDSA, the industry and to creating a quality publication that attendees can thoroughly enjoy."

"We're excited to have the Ziff Davis Media Game Group return as our E3 Show Daily sponsor this year," said IDSA President Doug Lowenstein. "With their position as one of the largest and most respected game magazine publishers in the country, the Ziff Davis Media Game Group brings the expertise required to create a Show Daily that will be useful and valued by all E3 attendees."

The Ziff Davis Media Game Group closes advertising in the 2003 E3 Show Daily on April 8, 2003. A full-page, four color ad will be $6,570. A discount will apply to IDSA members. Companies interested in contacting the E3 editorial team should address correspondence to e3dailyedit@ziffdavis.com.
