Why do Ted conferences cost so much to attend?
From browsing the web page i have found that the Ted conferences are highly priced in the thousands. I am a young person from Ireland and this has thrown of any ideas I may of had of attending one that is close. Can someone explain why it is so much or have I got it wrong? Plus can anybody justify that cost if that is what it actually is? If people are expected to pay in the thousands of pounds to attend these conferences and only those that can afford it can attend, this has changed my view on Ted. Can anybody explain where that money goes to or what it is for?
