Calling All Volunteers!

Every year volunteers help us to make iVentures a world-class conference by welcoming and assisting delegates and industry leaders in the interactive digital media industry from Canada and abroad. Our volunteers not only help to enrich the conference by making sure things go off without a hitch, but they also work to make a positive impact by creating a sense of community.

 

In return our volunteers not only receive free registration to the conference, but additional benefits include opportunities to participate in curated networking events and joining in on the talks and paneled discussions where industry leaders from around the world join us to speak on issues and opportunities that are at the forefront of interactive digital media industry.

This year we are looking for volunteers to help out with the event between November 5th – 7th at the Design Exchange in downtown Toronto. If you are a friendly, welcoming and reliable person who takes pride in helping to connect people from different communities and who shares a passion for all things digital and interactive media, then apply to be one of our conference ambassadors using the link below:
