INFO: Registering for E3 as an Industry Affiliate (Los Angeles, June 11-13)


Registration is open for E3 in Los Angeles (June 11-13) if you’re interested in going.  And as usual, it is free for Industry Affiliates – i.e. people directly involved with the Electronic Entertainment industry.

To register yourself for E3, go to:

Then attend as an Industry Affiliate.  (There’s no company code necessary)  This is a the “free” registration pass, again, for individuals that are involved in the Entertainment industry.  The key here is that you will need to submit 2 scanned forms of company ID to E3 registration via email… and they are very explicit about what they’ll accept.

Taken from the E3 Registration site:

In order to apply for FREE admission as a member of the interactive entertainment industry, you must submit two of the credentials listed below. At least one document must contain both your name and the name of your company.    

All registrants should also include their company’s website address which should be a fully operational site through which your Company Business can be validated.     

Registrants should have a valid employee email address to which their final E3 confirmation can be sent.   

Instructions for submitting these credentials will be emailed to you after you submit your online Registration Application.               

Acceptable forms of EMPLOYEE/COMPANY ID include:

  • Insurance Card listing both employee name and company name
  • Paycheck Stub verifying current full-time employment within the industry
  • Company Credit Card listing both employee name and company name
  • W-2 Form
  • Current Business License indicating type of business
  • Current Retail Sales Tax License
  • Current Resale Tax Certificate
  • Invoices within the last 6 months that show purchases of products related to the industry* 
  • Current Federal resale tax certificate (VAT)

*Retail attendees are eligible for complimentary admission to E3 only if they are responsible for company purchasing.  If you are unable to document your buying power by supplying company invoices, purchase orders or other purchasing transactions, you may qualify for a paid admission and should visit to register for a 3-day Expo pass.

To submit your credentials to complete your registration, see the instructions below:
