QCon New York provides 5 content-rich days from Monday, June 25th to Friday, June 29th. Monday and Tuesday are set for workshops and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are the main conference days.

What to expect from this Volunteer Opportunity?

As QCon volunteer you will help with logistical onsite support during the event – including badge scanning, directing attendees to their seats, registration staffing, conference or/and workshop room monitoring and other similar onsite event work. Being a room monitor will allow you to attend some presentations and /or workshops for free in return for some help.

There will also be a drawing for a prize on the last day of the event - for the volunteers only. You will need to have fulfilled at least 3 full days of volunteer work to be able to win. We will try to accommodate specific schedules. We are looking for volunteers who are available at least 2 full days during the conference days (between Monday and Wednesday). Volunteers who have more availability will be given priority to be a room monitor the workshops.

QCon New York volunteers are expected to take care of their own transportation, parking and lodging. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for free during the course of the week as part of the conference. Students who need a volunteer certification at the end of the week for your resume, please let us know. Please note that representatives from sponsor companies are not eligible to be a QCon volunteer.
