Got a question about our event?
Why do I have to provide so many details to register?
We’re not just about spreading ideas worth spreading, TEDxMelbourne is about helping to make those ideas happen. And one of the ways we do that is ensuring our audience are the kind of people who are passionate about their ideas. Also, the more we know about you and our community, the more we can tailor future events to be as relevant and engaging as possible.
Why can I only buy one ticket at a time?
Only one registration is permitted at a time to make sure we collect the information we need and the right information for your nametag. We realise this might be a bit painful if you’re trying to register a family or organisational group, but it’s the only way we’ve found that makes sure we get all the information we need. If you don’t provide the the full information needed for mandatory questions this may result in a rejected registration – and we don’t want to do that to you!
What do we get for lunch? I have special dietary requirements.
The Melbourne Convention Centre prepares fresh, healthy lunchboxes that cater to a range of dietary requirements and their friendly staff can advise you of your options on the day.
Given your events sell out so quickly, why don’t you hold them at a bigger venue so more people can attend?
We would love to hold bigger events so more people can come along but this would not only push our costs up significantly, the size of our volunteer team simply can’t handle the logistics of a larger event. Perhaps you’d like to volunteer? Find out how.
Where can I find the speaker line-up?
You can expect TEDx calibre speakers covering a range of topics around future leadership and from many different industries, along with videos and performances on the day. A detailed program will be released on our website and we’ll also let everyone know via Twitter & Facebook.
Why do the tickets cost $94?
TEDxMelbourne is a non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers. We operate on a cost recovery basis. We need to cover the costs of the venue, lunches, video equipment and a range of other expenses to pull the event together.
Will the talks from the day be available to view online?
Yes, we will upload all talks from the day to the official TEDxTalks YouTube channel shortly after the event.
I bought a ticket, but can’t attend. Can I get a refund?
The bad news? We cannot and do not, under any circumstances, provide refunds. The good news? Tickets are fully transferable. So if for some reason you can’t make it, you can give your spot to someone else - just make sure you let us know so we can greet them with a smile and nametag on the day.
Do you offer press tickets or discounts for the media?
While we’d love for you to come along and promote our event, we don’t give away press tickets or offer discounts for members of the press to attend. Because we’re a not-for-profit event, we simply can’t cover the cost. We rely on our passionate community to spread the word instead.
