TEDxAmsterdam is ‘invite only’ and this year, the list of attendees was made based on motivation, also. We’ve taken these decisions for a number of reasons:
- We believe that TEDxAmsterdam is so much more than just a conference; we actually want the ideas presented on stage to become reality as much as possible, so we are looking at creating the right environment for that to happen.
- When selecting our audience, we’re looking at a specific kind of diversity – people from different sectors – who, when pooled together, represent the right synergy and potential for ideas to really germinate.
- We’re also looking for real innovators; people with a track record of taking bold ideas to fruition.
How can I get a ticket?
Tickets to TEDxAmsterdam are invitation only. We’re interested in bringing together as diverse an audience as possible, as we really want as many of the ideas as possible to come to fruition. Therefore we’re selecting a range of people who can help make this a reality.
All 2013 invites have been sent. We’re sold out.
I went last year, will I get invited this year?
Not automatically. We’re starting the invitation list from scratch, and you can update your profile on the www.tedxamsterdam.com website in order to be considered for invitation again this year.
I think I’ve got what it takes to be in the audience. How can I be considered for the invitation list?
We invite you to create a profile on our website, listing out your details and then providing a 140 character summary on why you think you should attend. We’ll then consider all profiles created and come up with a short list.
I’ve received contact asking me to ‘confirm my seat.’ Does this mean that I’m coming?
If you receive an email asking you to confirm your seat, then you’re invited and you can come. However, you need to confirm your seat before the due date mentioned in the email.
If I miss out on a ticket, how else can I watch the event?
There will be a livestream available on our website!
