How can you become a volunteer? Just fill out the form and we will get in touch with you for a short talk about your role at the conference. Don't wait too long - places are limited. ;) Here is a description of the available teams:

You will be responsible for the smooth check-in of 2500 participants, partners and speakers by handing them a badge and a wristband. If you love working with people - you will enjoy this!
Are you more of a techie person and you want to learn how an event production is done? Then, stage support is the place to be: you are the connecting point between the technology and the speakers, making sure everything on stage runs smoothly.
You will be the first person speakers will get in touch with once they arrive and the angel who will guide our speakers around the conference. Making sure they know their way around the venue and they are on time for their keynote.
If you love to have a full overview and share your knowledge with others, this role is perfect for you. In this team, you will be responsible for giving guidance and assistance to our participants so they don’t feel lost at any point.
Help us to make sure our partners feel comfortable and have everything they need. You will work closely with 4-5 partners and guide attendees to their booths.
If you love connecting the dots, this is your position! Your work starts beginning of May by coordinating when each speaker needs to be picked up from the airport and brought to the hotel. For this, you get more free time during the conference.
If you are a night owl, you will help with organizing the best party in Vienna! B) You need to make sure that everyone gets a welcome drink.
Responsible for having an overview of each part of the event, you need to track when things need to be built and how.

In return for your support, we promise you:

  • Keynotes: participation in at least 4 keynotes and free time to enjoy the conference
  • Practical Experience: in organizing a huge international event
