Pollstar Live! Volunteer Program

Are you a Campus Program Advisor who has students studying to be a part of the concert or event industry? Would they benefit from exposure to the people who really make decisions in the industry?

Pollstar Live! offers a limited number of volunteer positions to college students pursuing degrees in Sports & Entertainment Marketing or related fields. The volunteer program offers students an opportunity to work at the conference in trade for their registration cost. Students are responsible for their own travel, lodging and food costs not included in the conference registration.
