In 2014, an Expo Pass for the Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3, cost $795 before April 28 or $995 after April 28. An industry pass is free, but it is not available after April 28. Industry passes are only available to qualified professionals in the interactive entertainment industry who present two acceptable forms of industry ID.
E3 is not open to the general public; it is a professional trade event. Attendees must be able to document that they are currently and directly professionally affiliated with the interactive entertainment industry. The management of E3 reviews and approves of the registrants, and no one under the age of 17 is permitted to attend.
