Unfortunately, DreamHack Leipzig cannot take place in 2021 in its usual format. The current health regulations do not allow for an interactive gaming festival in which celebrating, playing and experiencing games on site are essential components of the event concept. On top of that, large international esports tournaments are currently difficult to plan due to ongoing travel restrictions. As a result, Leipziger Messe decided together with co-organizer Schenker Technologies/XMG and licensor DreamHack AB to hold DreamHack Leipzig 2021 in a modified format.

Exhibitor Statements DreamHack Leipzig 2020
Unbelievable Atmosphere and Enthusiasm
The DreamHack Leipzig has an outstanding reputation and has been synonymous with extraordinary and intensive live events in the diverse spectrum of video games for years. So it was a logical step for us to hold the final of the first regional Rainbow Six Siege tournament series on this stage. The atmosphere and the guests' enthusiasm at the Clash of Nations was unbelievable and we are very proud to have staged a tournament of this scale for the GSA region. We would of course also like to thank all participants and our partners and we are looking forward to bringing the local Rainbow Six-E-sport closer to fans in 2020.

Exhibitors From Day One and Coming Back Next Year
We were there as exhibitors when DreamHack Leipzig opened its doors for the first time back in 2016. Beginning with just 40 square meters, we have since more than tripled our exhibition area. Our decision to become a sponsor of the LAN was also a decisive step in the right direction, as it provides us with direct feedback on our products. This of course also allows us to quickly dive into technical discussions or to provide specific advice on hardware setup. We generally find exactly our target audience here and we do not want to do without this invaluable source of exchange. DreamHack Leipzig is and remains for us a crucial element in successfully positioning ourselves in the market. We will definitely be back next year.

Lots of Units Sold
It was both a great opportunity and a challenge to make an appearance here as a shop. As the decision to attend was made at short notice we had lots to do beforehand, but we were not disappointed by our cooperation with the project team. We hit the ground running at DreamHack Leipzig on Friday and were quickly rewarded for our efforts. Just half an hour after opening, customers were already lining up at our counters - and it didn't stop for a moment. Guests ranged from hardware nerds to impulse buyers, eSports teams and of course all sorts of gamers. Our service station was especially well received by the LAN players, whose hardware broke down under such continuous stress. All in all, we were able to sell a large number of units and were super satisfied with the result.

Magnificent Kick-off to a New Year of eSports
This year's Dreamhack Leipzig was also the perfect venue for the final of the ESBD club league. The champions from Gera and Berlin showed just how great eSport from the various regions can be. Dreamhack Leipzig is a great start to a new year of eSports, and Leipziger Messe is a solid partner.
