DreamHack to reach 70,000 visitors in Sweden by 2015

In 2013 DreamHack attracted 41 171 visitors to the two festivals DreamHack Summer and DreamHack Winter in Jönköping, Sweden. Now it’s time for DreamHack to establish a third annual event in Sweden, as part of DreamHack’s 2-year plan to reach 70 000 visitors in Sweden. The goal with DreamHack Stockholm is to create a new gaming event in the Capital of Scandinavia to show-case Sweden as the leading eSports nation in Europe and create a hub for the Swedish Game Industry in Stockholm.
– We already have a vision to make Stockholm the eSports capital of the world, and combining that with the sensational Swedish game industry is a perfect match in our opinion. DreamHack is already known as the world’s largest computer festival and one of the top organizers in eSports worldwide, and creating an event where we combine all that feels like a natural step, said Robert Ohlén, CEO of DreamHack

The natural meeting point for Swedish gamers

DreamHack Stockholm will gather world class eSports and the sensational Swedish Game Industry in one event, where lectures, congress and hackathons will be a natural part of the event. In addition to this, DreamHack will invite international Keynote Speakers to hold presentations live on-stage and make DreamHack Stockholm the most important B2B-event in the Swedish Game Industry today.
– Stockholm is a global hotspot for video games with probably the highest concentration of hit games in the world per capita. A big part of this is the vibrant gamer community and we can only welcome this initiative by DreamHack to join these together in one event, said Per Strömbäck, Spokesperson at Swedish Games Industry.

DreamHack Stockholm will feature 5 main activities.

World class eSports – live on Stage
DreamHack is one of the largest independent platforms in eSports today, and by many considered one of the top-5 event organizers in the world. DreamHack Stockholm will feature the final stop of DreamHack Open 2014, before the Grand Finals at DreamHack Winter 2014. DreamHack Stockholm will also feature other eSports tournaments, to be presented soon.

DreamExpo – Stockholm’s best Gaming & Tech Expo
At DreamHack Stockholm, DreamHack will arrange a new and fresh gaming-focused expo for gaming enthusiasts. A wide range of world’s leading hardware and software companies will be on-site, showcasing new products and services.

Key-note speakers
DreamHack will invite international Keynote Speakers from some of world’s leading gaming companies. The speeches will be hold on-stage in front of a live audience and with full media production. DreamHack will also give the chance to some of up-n-coming Swedish developers to be on-stage giving additional depth to the speeches.

Scandinavia’s biggest Hackathon
DreamHack’s roots are scene/demo competitions and even though we hate the buzz word “hackathon” it seems we need to adapt to the common term. DreamHack will arrange the biggest Hackathon ever produced and organized in Scandinavia. The event will be exclusively for invited coders, programmers and creative people, and sponsored and supported by some of coolest companies in the industry. Follow @DreamHackathon

Stockholm eSports & Game Congress – “Free2Pay”™
In 2012, DreamHack and our partner in Spain, Canales Corporativos hosted the Valencia eSports Congress with invited game publishers, eSports organizers, media, teams and players to discuss the future of eSports. Now it’s time for the second congress, where we invite the game industry as well to have both open lectures, panels and key-notes with a private congress back-stage.

The main theme of the Congress will be “Free2Pay” (not a typo)™ where the leading parties will discuss the future business model of gaming and how it influence both eSports and the Game Industry.
