INTERVIEW SCHEDULING

  • DREAMHACK STAFF: If you would like to schedule an interview with DreamHack’s Chief Product Officer and Director of Esports, Mike Van Driel, please send an email to mvd@dreamhack.com including a few time blocks that work for you. Mike will reply and schedule directly with you.
  • PLAYERS/PERSONALITIES: You are invited to approach players and personalities throughout the venue. Players in between matches are often on a strict schedule, but can sometimes fit in interviews. Once matches are complete for the day, they are typically more available. If you have a specific interview request, you can visit the stage associated with the player’s game and ask to speak with the head of that area. They may be able to introduce you to a player you’re interested in meeting. It may also be easier to reach out ahead of time via social media to players and their coaches/managers, to pre-schedule interviews.
