For Anime Expo 2021, all Volunteer Leads and Assistant Leads will have their own Volunteer Housing Block. More information regarding the Volunteer Lead Hotel Block will be provided to our AX Volunteer Leaders in the upcoming year. Our AX Leaders will be housed at the USC Dorms and will be able to sign up for rooms and pick their roommate on Shiftboard when the block opens for the USC Dorms. During this time, SPJA will be handling all housing accommodations pertaining to the USC Dorms.
Our AX 40-Hour Volunteers will have a General Volunteer Hotel Block, separate from Volunteer Leads. AX Volunteers will be utilizing a website called Passkey to choose to stay at either the USC Hotel or the Westin Bonaventure. Our AX Housing Provider, Conference Direct, will be handling all hotel inquires within this block. Remember the primary person/card holder of each hotel reservation will receive a hotel reimbursement after meeting all reimbursement requirements after Anime Expo 2020.
We want to provide a premium hotel experience for our volunteers for Anime Expo. With this process, volunteers will have the freedom to choose their own roommates and their hotel within the block. We have carefully vetted out all properties before selecting USC Dorms for the Leads and USC Hotel and Westin Bonaventure as our designated General Volunteer Hotel Block.
