You will get to meet the team, explore the TechBBQ venue (Lokomotivværkstedet), learn about your role, and get an overview of what's happening at TechBBQ 2022. It'll be fun!

Previous volunteers who met up formed closer bonds with their team members. They also felt more prepared for the work they would be doing by having the opportunity to ask relevant questions.
