What today is DreamHack, started in the early Nineties, when computers had floppy discs and the Internet was something exotic that a few academics played around with. DreamHack was started by two enthusiasts, Martin Öjes and Kenny Eklund, and the first sessions were held together with friends in a local school.

The first big move was to the dome in Borlänge, where there was room for a whopping 3.000 participants. One incident, that in retrospect is kind of funny, was when DreamHack shut down the electricity and caused a black-out for McDonalds and the Shopping Mall.

The second major move was to Elmia’s large exhibition halls in Jönköping, perfectly positioned in the middle of Southern Sweden, almost equidistant to Stockholm, Malmö and Göteborg. The number of visitors to each DreamHack event has showed a steady growth every year.
