We have an A/V team to make sure all the technical aspects of BronyCon go smoothly. The Attendee Relations team will work to be the best convention hosts they can be, and we'll need people at our convention store to help sell merchandise.

Do you want to work at BronyCon 2013? Do you prefer greeting people face to face as opposed to in writing? Attendee Relations may be the place for you. The job of Attendee Relations is to be the smiling faces everyone sees when the walk through the convention center doors, handing out badges and just making sure our attendees are happy. If this sounds like something you'd like to do, feel free to put in an application to the Attendee Relations Staff.
