Have you attended GDEX and wanted to be more involved? Or are you a new face that wants to do more than just see the show?  Join the budding community of students, developers and gaming enthusiasts who make it all happen. Volunteering at GDEX is a great way to get involved with the gaming community in Columbus and get a behind the scenes look at the event.  Our volunteers are some of the best that the Midwest has to offer, and you could join their ranks!

Volunteer now to help execute this weekend fueled on gaming.


Volunteers were just about everywhere so you never had to worry about getting help if you had a question. Also, all of the volunteers were especially helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable about the event making it a great experience from their efforts alone. Likely the best collection of volunteers we have noticed at any event!
