Reception

This team brings together the friendliest and handy volunteers :) They are responsible for the arrangement of the reception area, promotion and acceptance of donations, monitoring whether sponsors have everything needed. This team also helps other teams - often unable to move from their places; directs visitors to the right halls, lectures and games of sponsors. They take joy in visitors' pets, and many, many other things they do thus contributing for the conference to be lighter, livelier and more fun.
