Event description

Description

TEDxAdelaide 2017: Zoom Out is set to be the biggest and most diverse TEDx event in Adelaide to date. With a focus on viewing the world through a different lens, and harnessing the power of our connections on a larger scale, we want to know what opportunities lie ahead for our city. The speakers you will hear, connections you will make, and the overall event experience are sure to inspire you to develop and pursue ideas at the conference and in the future.

In previous years, tickets have sold incredibly fast and most events have sold out. This is also your chance to support TEDxAdelaide as an organisation, as we prepare for a truly spectacular event. TEDxAdelaide is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers, and the support of our community and partners is what allows TEDxAdelaide to continue sharing 'ideas worth spreading'.

Doors open for registrations at 1.30pm and we'll have plenty to see and do, including an exciting new area showcasing 'Ideas In Action'.

Session 1 will start at 3.00pm

Session 2 will start at approximately 6.00pm after a one hour break to explore and dine.

EVENT FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The 2017 event is at the Adelaide Town Hall on King William Street, and there is minimal street parking in this area. We recommend making arrangements to take public transport to and from the event; if you're planning to drive we suggest car-pooling with other TEDxAdelaide fans and parking in Topham Mall carpark.

Does the ticket price include food and refreshments?

One can not think well if one has not dined well; therefore delicious food, served during the main break is included with your TEDx Adelaide 2017 ticket.

Is there a student or concession ticket?

This year's event only has one ticket price of $89.96 (+ booking fee). We have strongly considered discounted tickets for students and concession card holders, and we continue to look into ways to facilitate this. We believe our ticket price is exceptional value for money, providing our audience with world leading ideas, along with a food selection to match the ideas heard from the stage. We also have one of the lowest-priced TEDx ticket in the country!

This is only possible through the dedication of the TEDxAdelaide volunteer team and our generous partners; this is a non-profit organisation and with ticket sales we manage to cover costs. We are looking to partner with organisations who may choose to sponsor tickets for students/concessions/economically disadvantaged groups and individuals, so please contact info@tedxadelaide.com if you would like to discuss this.

I'd like to speak at the event! Can I still do that?

Our program for 2017 is now finalised, but if you would like to be notified of speaker applications for 2018 and other opportunities, please sign up to the mailing list.

When do the talks start?

Registrations are open from 1:30pm, and the programme begins from 3pm. We recommend getting to the venue as early as possible to orientate yourself with the venue and to participate in some of the space activation. Seating is unassigned unless you have specific access requirements.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

There is no age limit, we encourage all people of all ages to attend! Please bear in mind that there may be some materials presented that could be challenging to young minds, so please consider adult supervision.

How do I indicate I have dietary requirements or access needs?

You will be asked for your dietary requirements or access needs when booking your ticket.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

You can reach us at info@tedxadelaide.com. Everyone organising TEDxAdelaide is a volunteer, so we thank you in advance for your patience in awaiting our responses.
