#gamesweekberlin volunteer application

So Games were always fascinating for you? You dream of being a part of the games industry?
Join the force that does its best every year to make everyone happy!

The #gamesweekberlin runs from Monday, April 23rd through Sunday, April 29th 2018.

Volunteers have pre-conference assignments and an orientation get-together the week before the event starts.

If you are accepted into the program, you are expected to be on-site from the start of your pre-conference assignments through the end of the conference on the evening of Sunday, March 29th, during conference hours.

Please plan accordingly so you have no job, school or other conflicting responsibilities during that time. We also recommend to bring your business cards!


Simply follow the instructions at the bottom of this page and submit your application.

This is a paid position. You must be eligible to work in Germany.

**Internationals and people from diverse parts of the games industry are strongly encouraged to apply!**

Last day to submit your application is 9 April @ 18pm UTC. Applicants will be notified if they are accepted (or not) as soon as we can!

If you have questions please get in contact with the Volunteer Manager Dominika Chorosinska from Booster Space at dominika@booster-space.com

Thank you and we are happy to hear from you!
