E for All Expo Detailed

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Nintendo will be a major player at this year’s revamped video game E for All Expo tradeshow, Executive Vice President of IDG Mary Dolaher spilled the beans about the show to GameSpot. Single-day passes for Thursday and Friday will cost $50 and Saturday or Sunday passes will cost $75. A full pass for all four days will be available for $110.

What would a tradeshow be without showcasing the latest video games? Dolaher mentioned that all attendees would get to try out many big-named, holiday releases in a finished state along with participating in tournaments and swiping some free game swag. Dolaher said that Nintendo won’t be the only company there and contracts have been issued out to many others but a final list has not been specified yet.

While the E for All Expo is seemingly the replacement of E3, the expo won’t be recreating it. One of the problems with E3 was the staggering price on running the show so with the E for All Expo, booths will be less elaborate and more on being interactive and just showing off the game products. Another problem with E3 is that all of the major gaming news were released before the actual expo. Now, all press conferences, keynote addresses and announcements will be presented during the expo.

Lastly, Dolaher mentioned that the reaction for the new expo has been very positive and there are plans for making an E for All Expo 2008. There are also plans to expand the expo to other countries, including some in both Asia and Europe. Tickets will go on sale in June and advance ticket sales will make its way in the coming months.
