What are the main challenges and how do we combine so many areas together into a large-scale event? Several of our staff share a little insight as to what goes on into working behind-the-scenes at DreamHack!
Preparation for the event often starts months before. Most of the prep-work consists of research, setting up deadlines, talking to stakeholders, meeting partners, and making sure all the right equipment and people will be there during set-up. This applies to esports productions from our studio too!
Challenges of production
Yes most things are planned for, but can we really completely prepare for everything? Here’s an example: it could be that the power cable we ordered is different, and the hardware doesn’t work. Or a colleague is sick. A lot can happen during an event and our staff are adept at problem-solving so attendees can get a smooth viewing experience.
