You will be given a certain task, like scanning tickets, hosting for one of our guests or other tasks. 
You can let us know what your preference is, but we can’t guarantee that you’ll be given that particular task. Whatever you do, it will be contributing to a memorable experience for our visitors.   

You have to be at least 18 years old. 

Preferably on Saturday 23th as well as on Sunday 24th of November 2019. You can also volunteer on one day.

Sunday 24th of November: 08:00 till 18:30 hours.  

There will be a general presentation about Heroes Dutch Comic Con during the volunteer meet up. 
The various tasks will be explained. We also want to get to know you during this meet up. In this way we can decide what task is suitable for you. Our preference go to volunteers who can help out during the whole weekend. 

This is possible until Monday 2 September. Like the last edition, we are expecting a lot of registrations. Our advise is to register as soon as possible. 

You will receive a notification if you’re selected by email on Wednesday 25th of September. If you are selected, you will receive an invitation for the volunteer meet up.

Unfortunately not. When you register yourself as a volunteer we are counting and depending on you. It is also very important to attend the volunteer meet up. Unforeseen events can always happen, like illness or worse. In that case, please contact us as soon as possible via info@duthcomicon.com. Include in the header ‘Cancellation Volunteer’. 

If you’re not sure if you can make it on Saturday 23th and/or Sunday 24th of November. At every edition of Heroes Dutch Comic Con we are striving to make it better then the previous edition and give our visitors an even better experience. To secure this we need to be able to depend on our volunteers. 

If you are working on one day, you will receive a ticket for the other day. If you are working the whole weekend, we will make sure that you will have approximately three hours of free time. Please keep in mind that you can not decide for yourself on which day you want to use your free hours. It is not possible to get a free ticket for another edition of Heroes Dutch Comic Con nor for another event of the Heroes group.

We assume that you are fully available during the day(s) that you are volunteering. This also applies to photobooth or meet & greet sessions.

We are very glad that you will be helping out the whole weekend. We want to especially reward you by organizing a fun barbecue. This will take place after the spring edition of Heroes Dutch Comic Con, when the weather hopefully takes a turn for the better. We will contact you when this takes place as you really don’t want to miss this!

Your travel expenses will be reimbursed from your home address. If you are travelling by car, the reimbursement will be 0,19 cents per kilometer. When you travel by public transportation, we will reimburse your ticket. After Heroes Dutch Comic Con you will receive an expense claim form.
