    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

    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:

    Code:
    https://mp1630k065.mapyourshow.com/7_0/exhibitor/exhibitor-list.cfm?export=pdf
    This led to the exhibitor list being downloaded. Here in image form, so you can cross-reference the information yourself:

    They have a lesser booth in South Hall, it's marked Mixer.
     
  10. That "Fire lane" publisher must be important, center of the stage at both Sony and Nintendo.

    Sooo, CDPR only got MRs, meaning that the rumours about a Cp2077 press demo might just be true.

    It worked great for Ouya with their own place outside the E3 conventional center.

    Not necessarily. At least not when it comes to new games being announced. Might just be for demos of already announced games. Sony got a lot of those, right?

    I mean plenty of people troll MS so it’s completely valid to wonder people’s intentions , since we’ve known they had their own building for awhile.

    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.

    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

    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!
