HAPPY 2019 - E3 2019 UPDATE

Hello Everyone and Happy 2019!!

E3 2019 January UPDATES!! Yes, its never too early to start planning for E3 in January. I am beyond excited because this is my hype for the summer as a local and there’s no way I will miss it for the world. This is my Cochella haha. So E3 News says that E3 will be on JUNE 11-13 2019. That’s a Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday! Start planing vacation time!! I know I already did and so did my hubby. Things to PLAN for early this month. If you been following me for a while, you know that tickets go on sale early in the year and they are CHEAPER if purchased with time. Here is the date you CAN NOT MISS!
Early Bird pricing: $149 (1,000 available)
Note: A gamer pass is good for all three days of E3. Experience industry-changing technologies, never-before-seen products, and announcements all under one roof.
REGISTRATION OPENS February 12, 2019 @12 EST
For those that don’t mind making it rain
Premium Badge: $995 (you can start buying NOW)
Premium Pass holders benefit from the following amenities:
  • Three day Expo Pass with exclusive early access hours Tuesday and Wednesday
  • Access to our VIP Lounge which provides a quiet atmosphere to plan and strategize your time while at E3, check emails, access business and concierge services, meet with colleagues
  • Dedicated service for E3 hotel reservations with access to the best available hotel selections through E3 Housing
  • Catered breakfast and lunch each day
  • Exclusive Industry CEO and VIP Reception
  • Daily Networking Receptions in the VIP Lounge
  • Access to the Exhibit Hall through a dedicated VIP Entrance
  • Premium Seating at the E3 Coliseum panels
  • Access to LA Live activations
  • Discounts for Premium Badge holders at the Official E3 Merchandise Store
A huge PRO for this option is the early access hours. They are worth every penny. When you go inside with a general badge, the lines will already have started. This is why the extra cash is well worth it. I can suggest another way to possibly have earlier access. Last year I know there was a donation GameStop pop up booth that was accepting any type of video game donation and will give you a ticket for earlier access. I remember coming across it on twitter.
If you are part of industry, You are an annual winner in my eyes
