Historicon® Attendee Information




HMGS is always looking for volunteers to help at our shows. At Historicon we offer the following for 20 hours of your time:

  1. A badge to the show.
  2. ½ of a room (you will be sharing a room with another person so bring a friend or family member to volunteer with you).
  3. Food vouchers for each day worked.

This year HMGS has added an information desk, brought back the GM help desk, and taken on some of the setup duties that were once farmed out. We expect these changes to improve the shows for our attendees. They have also increased our need for volunteers.

We need folks to staff the following areas:

Wally's Basement – Duties include:

  • Assisting attendees.
  • Crowd control.
  • Helping Wally’s participants with setup.
GM Help Desk – Duties include:
  • Managing the event board and assisting attendees with choosing events.
  • Answering general attendee questions - e.g. Helping them find events.
  • Assisting GMs with issues.
  • Collecting fill rate data.
Registration – Duties include:
  • Computer Skills for onsite registration volunteers.
  • Assisting pre-registered attendees with the new print-on-demand system.
  • Handing out t-shirts and convention bags.
Exhibit Hall – Duties include:
  • Setup pipe and drape. (Tuesday)
  • Helping exhibitors at check-in by providing badges, resolving issues, etc. (Wednesday/Thursday)
  • Checking attendee badges during exhibit hall hours.
  • Teardown pipe and drape. (Sunday afternoon)
Information Booth – Duties include:
