The documents can be uploaded at that time or you can choose to log back into your registration dashboard at a later date. The deadline for uploading your industry credentials is April 28, 2016. Please note that your E3 registration will not be finalized until you provide your industry credentials for approval.
At least one form of Industry Identification must contain both your name and the name of your company. Incomplete applications will not be processed. The management of E3 2016 reserves the right to deny any applicant admission.
International attendees should submit similar credentials unique to their country that confirm their employment in the interactive entertainment industry.
