COVID-19 Update

The health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, partners, and staff is our top priority. While the ESA continues to plan for a safe and successful E3 show June 9-11, 2020—we are monitoring and evaluating the situation daily.  

Our E3 team and partners continue to monitor COVID-19 via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).  We are actively assessing the latest information and will continue to develop measures to further reduce health risks at the show.

The city of Los Angeles, which has declared a state of emergency, offered the following guidance:

  • The state of emergency allows the city and county to qualify for additional funding needed to prepare for COVID-19 in the future, if such funds are needed at all.
  • City officials will continue to prioritize measures and guidelines that are focused on cleanliness and safety.
  • The city of Los Angeles website is a source for local information.

Again, please know that we will continue to evaluate new developments and provide updates, as needed.



 E3 is taking the following steps:

Prominent reminders throughout the event to follow WHO and CDC GUIDELINES regarding COVID-19; including:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough by flexing your elbow or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Avoid handshaking or cheek-kissing as greetings – use the elbow or fist bump.


The LA Convention Center is taking additional steps, including:

  • Increasing the number of hand sanitizing stations throughout the facility.
  • Increasing the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting surfaces.
  • Enhancing their ability to address any attendees who become ill while on site.


Los Angeles World Airports are taking every precaution to keep travelers and employees safe at LAX Airport including:

  • Deep cleaning of restroom facilities and other public areas of the terminals at least once an hour, more frequently for high-traffic areas, with cleaning products formulated to kill germs (both bacteria and viruses).
  • Custodial staff are sanitizing grasping surfaces – handrails, door handles, etc. – within the public areas of the terminals.
  • Installing more than 100 additional hand sanitizer stations throughout the airport.
  • Creating informational signage for travelers.
