What do you think that organizers are asking for in volunteers to a large techy conference?

I really want to go to a conference next year, but it's extremely expensive (approx $4000 for three days plus airfares, accommodation etc).
But...... they do have some volunteer positions, you have to fill out a form and give a small bio. and a description of why you want to attend and what you think will make you a good candidate.
The conference is tech and futuristic in nature.Apart from boundless enthusiasm and real interest in the subject matter and very good people skills(even though I say it myself!) and speaking three languages, I am also very flexible and could arrive before the conference to help set things up etc.Is there anything else I should include ? I really would love to do this!What would sell me ? I am older than I imagine many volunteers-40 and don't know if that would "count " for or against me -Can any fabulous Mefites advise further?
