Staffing @ AnimeNEXT

AnimeNEXT prides itself on being a convention started by passionate fans in order to give back the fandom.

The hardworking individuals that work all year to put on AnimeNEXT are unpaid volunteers from among the fandom that have been chosen to hold yearly staff positions.

Our staff of volunteers work throughout the year to bring you some of the best content and guests that we can find from around the world. Without our dedicated staff, AnimeNEXT wouldn’t be what it is today.


Becoming a staff member at AnimeNEXT has a number of very competitive perks and we are always looking into new ways to reward our staff for all of their amazing work throughout the year. Past perks have included, but are not limited to, the following:

  • One (1) free three day badge to the show;
  • Hotel accommodations for the duration of the event (four people to a room);
  • Recognition pins after 5, 10, 15, and soon to be 20 years of service;
  • Eight (8) meals over the course of the event: Breakfast (Fri/Sat/Sun), Lunch (Fri/Sat/Sun), and Dinner (Fri/Sat);
  • An invitation to attend the AnimeNEXT Dead Dog party and celebrate a job well done with your fellow staffers;
  • Transit stipends or other similar options to facilitate getting to the show to staff;
  • Several holiday events or parties at staff meetings;
  • And so many other perks.
