    Call For GenCon 2016 Volunteers

    2016 GEN CON VOLUNTEER CALL
    Cryptozoic is looking for volunteers to demo our games at our booth at Gen Con. Gen Con will be held August 4th - 7th, 2016 at the Indianapolis Convention Center in Indianapolis IN.

    Here are the requirements:

    Must be 18 years of age or older.
    Must be able to work ALL DAY during the entire event.
    Must be friendly and have a positive attitude.


    The sponsorship application window will close at end of day Monday, June 27th.

    There will be 2 types of sponsorship for this event:

    Partial Sponsorship (Hotel & Badge Only) – Will be provided a shared hotel room checking in August 3rd and checking out August 8th.
    Badge Sponsorship - This is for those that have their lodging covered and only need a badge.


    Hotel Info:

    If you receive hotel sponsorship, you will be sharing a hotel room with at least one other person working the event.
    Spouses, friends, volunteers, players, significant others are not permitted.
    Your hotel will be paid for starting the day before the event and last until the day after the event.
    If you wish to stay longer or arrive earlier, you must arrange for this yourself.


    What is NOT paid for (partial list of common assumptions):

    Food (Each person will receive either lunch or one small stipend each day).
    Airfare, parking, taxi fares, bus fares, gas, etc.
    Additional room costs (room service, movies, laundry, etc).

    What kind of work would volunteers bee doing and what hours. "ALL DAY" can mean a lot of different things based on the scheduling of other events at Gen-Con.

    Either way I will be at the convention and hope to meet with some of the staff and possibly get some cards signed.

    What will the expected schedule for volunteering be like? If I'm selected, I plan to help all four days, so I'm curious about what I'm getting myself into. XP

    If only Gen Con was still in Milwaukee. I'd do it for sure.

    Are y'all only looking for volunteers for all 4 days? Or is 1, 2, or 3 days an option?
