    Press release from 2/17/19 | DreamHack Leipzig

    Exhibitor statemens DreamHack 2019

    All Expectations Exceeded

    Winter National 2019 powered by AMD has exceeded all our and our partners' expectations. Packed house, not a single empty seat, at peak times more than 6,000 spectators on the German stream! DreamHack Leipzig has proven that the German Counter-Strike world has an absolute right to exist and this response just solidifies it! We at Unikrn are very proud to have organized such a great event together with Leipziger Messe. We are already looking forward to next year's planning meetings. That tournament might last 3 days!

    • Tom Lemke, General Manager of Business Development at Unikrn

    Equal Partners

    We are extremely satisfied with this year's DreamHack. Everything that makes gaming great comes together in Leipzig – cosplay, eSports and hardware. During the three days we were able to provide eleven hours of live programming every day and welcomed exciting guests to our show. Reactions from the audience were phenomenal. DreamHack has a really strong reputation and we feel like equal partners. Next year, we want to deepen our collaboration and broadcast even more live streams.

    • Yassin Chakhchoukh, Project Manager at Webedia

    Unique Selling Feature Emerges

    "We are very proud to be a co-organizer of DreamHack Leipzig. We are especially pleased that the variety of tournament titles have increased. These are an important part of the overall concept. One of numerous examples is "The WinterNational" for CS:GO, which was a great success and was well received by the community. This developed a unique selling point in Leipzig, which we want to use in the future for further growth. Our goal is continuous, sustainable development of the event, which we will consistently promote together."

    • Robert Schenker, Managing Director of co-organizer Schenker Technologies/XMG

    The Format is the Highlight

    The premiere of our first club cup was a complete success. We were able to send a clear message about the impact club activities can have on eSports. The clubs that took part found this to be a great achievement. We witnessed very enthusiastic spectators who created a fantastic atmosphere. We would like to develop this format further at DreamHack in Leipzig and establish it as the highlight of the eSports year.

    • Hans Jagnow, President of the ESport-Bund Deutschland e.V.

    German Premiere for new 49-inch Monitor

    Our stand was always full. We were able to present our complete gaming line-up and received positive feedback from all visitors. The cosplayers at our booth as well as our new 49-inch monitor, which was launched worldwide just last week and was shown for the first time in Germany at the trade fair, attracted special attention. Our sponsoring in the Stream Area was also a complete success. We are extremely satisfied and are looking forward to next year.

    DreamStore at Full Capacity

    At DreamHack, we presented our complete range of gaming hardware. Our visitors were very satisfied with the DreamStore. Our stand was completely occupied for the duration. In order to meet the high demand, we even had to continually deliver more products. In our opinion, we have nothing to lose by re-launching our DreamStore next year.

    • Jörg Camphausen, Managing Director of Media Markt Leipzig-Paunsdorf

    Noticeable Positive Developments at DreamHack

    DreamHack is a very important trade fair for our company and for our gaming brand Zowie. The user experience is especially important for us, as many of our products are characterized by the fact that you have to try them out directly. Visitors to our stand actively tested these products with positive results right from the first day of the event. Our involvement in the LAN was also very well received. The DreamHack visitors loved our monitors, which are usually used by the pro teams. We could really feel the strong development of DreamHack and are looking forward to participating next year.

    • Leonie-Alina-Alder, Marketing Specialist B2C (Zowie) DACH+Benelux BenQ Deutschland GmbH

    Best Event to Date

    As one of the very first exhibitors, we are always happy to participate. DreamHack in Leipzig is the beginning of our gaming year. Visitors to our stand tested our products extensively and bought them right away in the Media Markt DreamStore. Cooperation is excellent. We were able to achieve significantly higher sales figures than last year. For us, this year's event was the best so far. The growing popularity is clearly noticeable. We are extremely pleased with the results. We can't wait for next year!

    • Daniel Teubert, Key Account Manager at Trust

    The Next Generation of Game Developers

    Our joint booth for multiplayer game developers was well received. The Indie Arena Booth became a meeting place for cool new games. It almost seems as if DreamHack visitors were just waiting for such a booth to come along. Interest in Saxony is huge. One of the greatest things is that you don't meet promoters here, but instead get to know the developers personally. The next generation of game developers will start their dream here in Leipzig. The community vibe at DreamHack is awesome.

    • Wolf Lang, host of the Indie Arena Booth and Managing Director of Super Crowd Entertainment GmbH

    All-round Successful Event

    At DreamHack Leipzig we had incredible fan interactions and reached our exact target group. The combination of trade fair and event is excellent, which makes DreamHack unique. Most of all we could sense the increasing international attention as well as the growing popularity of the LAN Party. The event is a great partnership for us. We are very pleased that the event has been so successful all around.

    • Bastian Radloff, Communications Manager Monster Energy

    Mods Sparked Excitement

    Enthusiastic spectators, intense questions. The German Casemod Championship was well received. We got great feedback. Many visitors to DreamHack were amazed at the works of art that can be created out of gray computer cases. The 45 mods as well as the 4 live mods sparked excitement. We were welcomed in Leipzig with open arms and felt that we were one of the main attractions. In the coming year we want to inspire even more modders at DreamHack Leipzig and beyond.
