Amazon.de brings "Gamers Cage", "Gamers Showroom" and Twitch Stage to DreamHack Leipzig
The third partner for DreamHack Leipzig has now been announced. From 13 to 15 January 2017, Amazon.de will offer a unique experience for all e-sports fans, hardcore gamers and tech enthusiasts. In the "Gamers Cage" visitors will be able to try out the latest devices, in the "Gamers Showroom" dream of playing on one of the Pro-PCs on display, and meet famous influencers on the Amazon Twitch Stage.
In the "Gamers Cage" right next to the main stage of the Amazon.de stand, those who are interested will have the opportunity to test their own devices in combination with the latest high-end devices from popular and established manufacturers such as Logitech, BenQ Zowie, MSI, Razer and Acer. "Does my notebook work with VR?", "What is the gaming experience like on a 4k curved monitor?", "What news is there regarding keyboards?" – these and all other questions will be answered by the Amazon.de team in the "Gamers Cage". If you want to take part, all you need to do is bring along your laptop or desktop PC to the "Gamers Cage" and try combining it with the very latest monitors, speakers and other peripherals, including VR headsets. But visitors who are looking for a new computer will also get their money's worth: The "Gamers Cage" will also feature the latest laptops and desktop computers for you to check out. All participants are then invited to rate the tested products at www.amazon.de.
But this is not all: In the "Gamers Showroom" Amazon.de will for the first time be presenting unique high-performance PCs that were put together from the very latest hardware from various manufacturers by the Amazon gaming team working in close collaboration with gaming specialists. The cases were inspired among other things by famous stars from the gaming scene. This means that visitors to DreamHack will have the opportunity to test genre-specific hardware from Amazon. In addition, Amazon will offer the unique opportunity to interact via these gaming stations with events and famous stars from the e-sports scene on the stage.
Those who are interested can reserve their slot in the "Gamers Cage" from 7 January 2017 at www.amazon.de/dreamhack.
In addition, over the three days of the trade show visitors can expect to find lots of exciting events from Twitch in cooperation with Amazon.de on the Amazon Twitch Stage. All activities will be broadcast live on Twitch so that fans who cannot get to Leipzig can easily follow Twitch streamers such as Shlorox or Staiy. Just one part of the keenly anticipated show is the Clash Royale Tournament, which is organised by TryMACS and to which all visitors to DreamHack are invited.
Twitch was founded in June 2011 and is a leading social video platform and community for gamers, the video game culture and creativity. Every day almost 10 million visitors come together to watch and talk about video games and more than 2 million streamers.
