    Volunteers’ missions:

    Logistics set up
    Before the beginning of the events, some help will be needed to get the welcome kits, the welcome tent… ready (bagging, set up of the welcome tent…).

    Welcome Tent
    The Welcome tent is located at the entry of Cité de l’espace. Help will be needed to hand out badges, programs, lanyards, welcome kits… and orientate participants. Persons from the organization will also be present to deal with registration issues.

    Welcome Desk
    The welcome desk will be located in the Astralia building. Help will be needed there for the visitors orientation, reminding them the program and places to be and giving them general information on the event and Toulouse. Any special needs by the visitors will also be taken care of at the reception desks.

    Help will be needed to register luggage and clothes, hand out tickets and control the dropped objects. Cloakrooms will be set up in Cité de l’espace and for the Gala dinner at Cloître des Jacobins on Thursday 5th, evening.
