by Rainier on March 6, 2006 @ 9:36 a.m. PST

The E3Expo has sold out of exhibit space for 2006, having sold more than 540,000 net square feet of space covering all five exhibit halls at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The 2006 E3Expo will host more than 400 exhibitors covering space equivalent to 4,650 Olympic swimming pools.

"As the global computer and video game industry enters an important creative and technological transition, the early sell out of E3Expo affirms the critical importance of this event," said Douglas Lowenstein, president of the ESA, the trade association that represents U.S. computer and video game publishers and owns E3Expo. "As the first place to see the most anticipated next generation hardware and software titles, and the best place to learn about the industry through its unrivaled conference program, E3Expo 2006 will offer attendees an unparalleled view of the business of games."

E3Expo, now in its twelfth year, will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on May 10-12 for exhibits and on May 9-11 for 34 conference and workshop sessions, which will be led by an unsurpassed panel of more than 175 industry leaders.
