New gaming show from CEA?

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) says it's considering founding an entirely new show to replace E3, reports. CEA president and CEO Gary Shapiro explains it this way: "Since ESA decided to eliminate the E3 event in its known format, we have been deluged with inquiries on whether we could fill the tradeshow needs of smaller video entertainment companies. Our executive board met yesterday and unanimously asked staff to explore ways that we can help the gaming community." Prior to the birth of E3, the CEA's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas was the gaming industry's biggest venue. For a new show the CEA would be considering either Los Angeles or Las Vegas as the host city.
