WHAT IS DREAMHACK MONTREAL?
DreamHack is a gaming event unlike any other! DreamHack events are all about the massive BYOC (Bring your own Computer) LAN party happening, and this is paired with a plethora of competitive tournaments and international esports competitions happening. Visitors are also able to check out the latest gaming & tech gear at the DreamExpo, and take part in all sorts of different activities that grassroots communities are able to organise, whether its more tournaments, cosplay, or any other activities! DreamHack events are what their visitors make them!

I WANT TO COMPETE, WHAT KIND OF TICKET SHOULD I GET?
To participate in a BYOC tournament, you will need a BYOC Ticket. Visitors ticket will let you visit the venue but you won’t be able to participate in the tournaments. Do not miss to pre register to secure your spot in the tournament.
WHAT DOES DREAMHACK PROVIDE FOR THE LAN PARTY? WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
For every BYOC ticket you purchase you will be provided with one table seat and a simple chair paired with it. You will be provided one electrical socket and one internet port. You will need to provide an internet cable (we recommend 10m to be safe) and a power bar to be able to plug in both computer tower and monitor.
IS IT SAFE TO BRING MY PC? DO I NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THEFT?
All BYOC visitors will go through a process to check in their computers & monitors, so that only they will be able to leave with them. We do not recommend leaving valuables like cell phones & wallets at your LAN seat. DreamHack is not responsible for any lost possessions.
