Volunteers

Are you looking to develop your customer service or event management skills, and would you like a more behind-the-scenes view of the convention? Because we’re a smaller con, our volunteers benefit from close contact with the organisers and having input into decisions that affect the entire event.

In return for your efforts, you’ll receive a volunteer pass and lanyard (with a unique design for 2015), subsidised meals and drinks at our volunteer meetups and the main event, and some limited Room 801 merchandise.

Disclaimer: if you are volunteering just because you think you can attend the con for free, that’s unfortunately not how it works. While we take very good care of our volunteers and encourage them to take scheduled breaks over the weekend to enjoy parts of the convention, we also need you to work for the time you’ve committed to. We’re there to make the event amazing for our guests and attendees, after all!

The event will be held in Parramatta, so you must be able to travel to the convention venue and/or pay for your own parking (available at the venue for a daily fee).

Our call for volunteers is now closed. Thank you to everyone who got in touch!
