DreamHack, recognised as the world’s largest LAN party and computer festival by Guinness, hopes to show India what the zest or experience of a digital festival is all about.
The overall gaming industry in India, pegged at Rs 5,540 crore (FY19), is poised for high growth, with a likely 22.1% CAGR taking it to Rs 11,880 crore by 2023, as per KPMG India. Both Indian and international gaming players are now eyeing the space in India. Consider how Ronnie Screwvala’s U-Sports hosted a gaming convention early this year. Titled U-Cypher, the gaming event was aired on MTV, in addition to a live stream on various streaming platforms. Currently, Sweden-headquartered DreamHack is set to host its first gaming convention in India.
