First Time Arisia Attendees Guide

Think of Arisia as a party for several thousand of your closest friends, some of whom you haven't yet met.

Things to do before the convention:

Things to do at con:

  • Visit the Dealers Room and the Art Show
  • Check the main page throughout the con for live updates
  • Read the Clear Ether newsletter each day for news and updates
  • Visit open parties via the the party board, Clear Ether


Help make Arisia even more awesome!

Volunteering is a good way to meet folks and learn about how the convention works. If you spend at least six hours helping with load-in and setup, you can get a free membership to the convention. If you volunteer for at least 12 hours during the convention you can get a membership to next year's convention.

Volunteer as much or as little as you like at Team Arisia HQ in the Westin's Revere room.

Staying healthy

Arisia might be a virtual convention, but you should still get a flu shot.  The sooner, the better.  If you have health insurance, it's free and you can probably get it at your local drug store.

Follow the "5-2-1 rule". In each 24 hours, get at least five hours of real sleep (not just resting your head on your keyboard), eat two real meals, and take one shower or bath.
