‘E For All’ expo announced

The demise of the video game expo late last year, the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3, was big news in the industry. The subsequent announcement of the E3 Media and Business Summit meant the industry was sorted… but what about the fans?

IDG World Expo today announced the official name of its newest event: “Entertainment for All Expo” (E for All Expo), scheduled for October 18-20, 2007, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The name replaces “GamePro Expo” – a placeholder while the company held a naming contest. More than 3000 entries were submitted on popular video game site GamePro.com.

“E for All Expo” will offer consumers the opportunity to test-drive the latest in games and gadgetry, as well as purchase products they enjoyed over the course of the 3-day event at on-site retail facilities. Additional attractions are in the works, including high-profile videogame tournaments; job fair/networking opportunities; family-friendly offerings; and the acclaimed Video Games Live concert. The Expo will also take advantage of soon-to-be-expanded LA Live area adjoining the LA Convention Center and Staples Center.
