Volunteer at Conquest

Our annual conventions typically run over the Easter Long Weekend, in Melbourne, VIC.

Conquest: Melbourne’s Easter Games Convention is run entirely by volunteers – from the convention organisers, the staff at the Registration Desk and in the Canteen, and of course all our Writers and GMs who create and run the games and events you play each year.

Volunteering is not only a fantastic way to help keep our convention running smoothly, but it’s also a great way to meet new people and have a fun time while you’re helping!

There are many different ways you can help out before and during Conquest.

Before the convention you can:

  • Design and run a game/event (see Writer/GM Information)
  • Offer to help run/GM another person’s game/event
  • Help promote Conquest/distribute advertising material (please contact us for more information)
  • Help set up the convention space (Friday morning)

During the convention you can:

  • Assist the Registration Desk
  • Assist with the canteen and/or kitchen
  • Help set up spaces for special events
  • Help pack up the convention space (Sunday afternoon)

How you can help

Anyone can be a volunteer at any time before and during the convention, and you can always lend a hand even if you are running or playing in games or events – even if you find yourself with a free session or two over the weekend, your help could make all the difference to us.

What you get for volunteering

Volunteers can trade their time helping in exchange for free entry into game sessions! (This is especially helpful if you really want to try new games, but are on a tight budget!) Volunteers are also provided vouchers for each shift worked that can be redeemed at the Conquest Canteen.

Please note: This is not paid work, but volunteering at our game convention gives you the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve helped a lot of people (including yourself) have an enjoyable time at the convention.

If you have any questions or require flexible arrangements, the org team can be reached at conquestorgs@gmail.com
