This year saw an interesting turn in the number of attendees and exhibitors at E3. There were more attendees than last year but fewer exhibitors.

2013 saw 48,200 people attending the show. It was up by 700 this year with 48,900. However, there were only 200 exhibitors as opposed to 230 the year before.

The records for most attendees sit with 1998 and 2005 as each had 70,000 people go to the expo. E3 will be returning next summer from June 16-18.

Our Take
It's interesting that we didn't see as many exhibitors this year, but I doubt it's anything detrimental. I suppose it could be that many are sitting out this year to tool around with the new consoles. If that's the case, we may see a resurgence of even more exhibitors come 2015.
