Disclaimer: The materials contained in this post, namely image representations of E3 2018 target maps, have been through legal means obtained via https://ordering.ges.com/022601156/targetmaps.

On May 05, 2018, target floor plans for E3 2018 were made available for public view by ESA/GES (event planning and marketing partner) via the Expresso by GES service at https://ordering.ges.com/022601156/targetmaps. For some time, access to these target maps was via direct communication with show management, but the maps have as of today been made available for download, and no account/login on Expresso via GES is required.

These target maps do not directly show which company belongs to which booth, but I have cross-referenced through a separate booth list (available via https://mp1630k065.mapyourshow.com/7_0/search.cfm, provided later in this post) and marked select booths with companies. At this point of time I do not have access to booth size data.

The floor plans do not differ greatly from those I posted earlier this year. Some booths have yet to be assigned companies.

South Hall

West Hall



Concourse Hall

As mentioned, I cross-referenced with a separate booth list which was retrieved today, May 05, 2018. While the link to the exhibitor list isn't directly shown on the front page, I compared exhibitor directories for some other shows (mainly CES 2018) and tried the following:

This led to the exhibitor list being downloaded. Here in image form, so you can cross-reference the information yourself:











Interactive floor plans ought to be made available sometime in May via https://mp1630k065.mapyourshow.com/7_0/search.cfm

When will the maps of the show floor be available?

E3 2018 floor plans will be available in May. Please continue to check back.

Wow, Sony & Nintendo have a lot of booth space. Is Microsoft going to have any presence at the show?

Am I blind or ...where is MS?
The Microsoft Theater will be home to official E3 events like the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing on June 10, 2018 at 1PM PT, various Xbox FanFest activities, hands-on gameplay and demos for all E3 attendees and more. Not only does the Microsoft Theater allow us to centralize our Xbox presence at E3, but it’s size enables us to include even more fans and partners in the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing than ever before.

In addition to the Microsoft Theater, we’ll also continue to have a meaningful presence at the LACC with a new booth completely dedicated to Mixer, where you can play, stream and interact with games and catch the latest E3 news live throughout the entire week.

They have a lesser booth in South Hall, it's marked Mixer.

Man, Capcom's floor space is only behind Sony, Nintendo, Square Enix, Ubi and Bethesda in size. All that floor space for DMCV.

So many meeting rooms for Sony. Probably going to show off PS5 plans behind the scenes.

Does FromSoft/Kadokawa not having a meeting room mean that they have a deal with a publisher in place for Shadows Die Twice...? Or they just haven't reserved one yet? At E3 2014, they showed off Bloodborne gameplay behind closed doors. They did the same for DS3 in 2015.

I believe Microsoft is doing their stuff in another building like EA does, right?
Not quite.

Microsoft's presence will be on the Microsoft Theater across the street from the LACC, but unlike EA, their showing is still part of the ESA program for E3.

EA Play has nothing to do with the ESA E3 chronogram

Cant wait to see Nintendo's Smash themed booth (assuming that is what they go for).

You meant DS3 in 2015? It came out in April 2016.

Dang! Looking so good. I absolutely cannot wait! Now all Sony needs to do is announce their E3 plans. I hope they do another E3 experience in theaters!
