We recently teamed up with DreamHack to bring our Dream Team to their Atlanta, Georgia expo in December 2023.

Our 1,000 Dreams Fund Dream Team is a special group dedicated to serving as exemplified leaders for women and folks in esports, gaming, broadcasting, and beyond through their support of the BroadcastHER Initiative! These members get a behind-the-scenes look at all things BroadcastHER and 1DF as they help us make dreams come true through planning, outreach, and much more!

DreamHack creates immersive gaming festivals that feature LAN parties, top tier and grassroots esports, cosplayers, content creators, and tons of art, screenings, live music — and, of course, the latest games.

DreamHack Atlanta was hosted December 15-17, 2023 at the Georgia World Congress Center and had more than 40,000 in attendance!

Atlanta was also our THIRD and final stop of 2023 with Dreamhack. We had so much fun bringing some of our BroadcastHER community members along with us to have access to these career development experiences and onsite job-shadowing opportunities with the DreamHack team.

From shadowing the product management and marketing teams to going behind-the-curtain of the main stage, and even getting to tag along with DreamHack’s VP of Global Partnerships, our Dream Team had exclusive behind-the-scenes access to what it takes to make a live event like DreamHack Atlanta happen. 

Here are some of our favorite photos from the event:

“Having the opportunity to be mentored at DreamHack Atlanta was amazing,” says msplaced_. “My mentor gave me valuable insight on what his job includes. He also took the time to hear what I would like to bring to gaming as a whole and in doing so gave valuable feedback on what could be great avenues for me. I really appreciate having the opportunity to be heard and look forward to seeing more collaborations like this one. Thank you DreamHack Atlanta!”

This time around, we were also invited to be a part of DreamHack’s Charity Corner.

We took part in the Dream Big Initiative, where attendees could purchase discounted tickets AND contribute to charity. Fifty percent of ticket proceeds went right back to the charities in the corner all weekend long — how cool is that?!

Plus, we had the chance to meet so many of YOU, our community! Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth in the Charity Corner. We can’t wait to see you again!

Thank you to DreamHack and all our wonderful mentors for helping change the lives of our 1,000 Dreams Fund Dream Team!
