E3 2017 sees 68,400 visitors interact with 2,000 products from 293 exhibitors

E3 2017 saw 68,400 people pass through its doors during its three-day run from June 13th-15th 2017.

The Entertainment Software Association, organisers of E3, revealed that over 2,000 products were showcased during the show from 293 exhibitors. Over 120 of these exhibitors had virtual reality products.

E3 2017 was also the first time the general public were given access to the conference, with 15,000 people from outside the industry setting foot on the show floor. Over 15 million E3-related social media posts were made during the conference, while "tens of millions" of people watched E3 content on Twitch.

Huge success

"E3 2017 was a huge success. The advancements in technology unveiled at E3 will redefine and drive worldwide growth of the most meaningful form of entertainment on the planet," said ESA CEO and president Michael D. Gallagher.

"Congratulations to our innovative exhibitors, members, and partners and to the millions of gamers who celebrated a spectacular E3 with us."

As per usual, mobile did not get a very good showing at E3. Ubisoft was the only major developer to reveal a mobile game at its pre-show conference, while Nintendo unveiled a wealth of interesting new games for its hybrid Switch console.
