Having survived the first two fully-packed days of the event, we knew that having a strong final day is crucial if we want to make a good impression as a first time exhibitor at DreamHack.
The day started out fast and we went straight with CS:GO death matches pitting the attendees with pro players from Team Epsilon named Gina and Scream.
Just like day 2, THREAT from Fnatic was generous enough to help us commentate the CS:GO matches and his experience with the game really showed up. He alternated with our very own Miguel Molina, who is one of the XSplit product managers, in making sure the Octagon was always alive and pumped up.
This time, the main draw of our booth was the giveaways and throwouts where we started emptying the swags by throwing them out to users outside of the Octagon. We also started giving high ticket items such as a graphics card and a couple of Steelseries headsets! Very nice!
Of course they had to work hard to win the prizes and that included doing pushups, balancing themselves on one foot, drinking a can of coke as fast as humanly possible, you name it!
As we wrapped things up, we realized how crazy our entire stint was for DreamHack Winter 2014. As crazy and tiring as it might seem, we were all very happy with how the three days turned out. A lot of excitement from the CS:GO matches and throw-aways, a lot of star power from the pro players, Team Fnatic CSGO and GamerBee, and to top things off, we appeared on the main stage to get our message across to everyone!
Of course none of this would be possible if not for our awesome hardworking friends from MSI who put in a lot of work into making everything happen. Shout-out to Jerry, Cindy, Anna, Tanja, Martijn, Christiaan and Rona. It was a pleasure for the entire XSplit team to work with you and we really enjoyed our time collaborating with you.
We want to also give a shout-out to other people and companies that we’ve bumped into during the event. The cool folks from Twitch who had their own lounge. Azubu who were also there as an exhibitor. Then we also met the great guys from Hitbox, Intel and a whole lot more that we couldn’t begin to mention them all.
And to all attendees, we hope you enjoyed your time in our booth and at DreamHack Winter. We hope to see you again next year! 🙂
