Got a question?
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 ideas. Also, the more we know about you, 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 group of freinds or colleagues, 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 full information needed for mandatory questions this may result in a rejected registration - and we don't want to do that to you!
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, but 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.
Why do the tickets cost so much?
TEDxMelbourne is a non-profit organisation run entirely by a team of volunteers. We operate on a cost recovery basis. We need to cover the costs of the venue and catering for this event in particular. Some of the money will also go towards a range of expenses to pull other events together throughout the year including video equipment and production, venues, catering, insurance and a million other things that go into creating a TED experience for our audience.
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 when they arrive.
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.
What do we get to eat? I have special dietary requirements.
We will do our best to cater for a range of dietary requirements during the afternoon tea break - just let us know when you register.
