Get on the list
If you want to subscribe to our newsletter, please fill in this form. We will then send you a link where you can opt-in. This is also the place where you can create your profile to join on-site discussions and be considered for the many invites we'll send out for the 2013 edition.
TEDxAmsterdam is an invitation only event. To be considered as a delegate you need to register! Find more information about this procedure below, as well as links to make your own profile and indicate your interest.
TEDxAmsterdam is ‘invite only’, a decision we've taken for a number of reasons:
a) 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.
b) 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.
c) we’re also looking for real innovators; people with a track record of taking bold ideas to fruition.
We definitely don't want TEDxAmsterdam to be an elitist event; and we do want to make it accessible to as many people as possible. So on that note, we’re not only creating novel ways for people to get a ticket, but we’re also working on simulcast projects so everybody who is unable to be part of the audience can still be part of the magic.
How can I be considered for the list?
Work on the invitation list is an ongoing process. If you're interested in attending, you can create a profile on our website to express interest.
We're aiming for as diverse an audience as possible in terms of age, gender, education, professional achievements, and so on. Every year we start this process from scratch, which means that if you attended any of our TEDxAmsterdam events before, you won't automatically be invited again this year. However, if you were, we encourage you to log in and update your profile in order to be considered again.
Please make sure to complete your application as soon as possible!
TEDxAmsterdam Livestream Simulcasts
A number of livestream simulcasts are organized by TEDsters at locations around the country for those who are interested in experiencing TEDxAmsterdam 'live.' More information about locations and the possibility of hosting your own simulcast event can be found here.
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.
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 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 various simulcast locations throughout the country. If you want to organize a simulcast yourself, then please contact us.
I went to a simulcast last year; how can I go and will they be at the same locations?
Some will be in the same location some not. Please check our simulcast page prior to the event for more details.
