Post-event checklist

After your event is over, we know what the natural thing to do next is — rest! You’ve put all the work in, and now you should put your feet up after what we hope was a fruitful and rewarding experience.

But first! There are just a few things to take care of in order to close out your event. Use this checklist for all of your post-event needs.

1. Fill out the organizer survey 

After your event is finished, fill out and submit the official TEDx Organizer Close Out form. We’re always looking to improve the TEDx program, and we rely on — and deeply appreciate — your feedback.

2. Send out the audience questionnaire 

Send all of your attendees a link to the official attendee feedback form.

Note for non-English language events: We also offer the feedback form in many other languages. If you have any questions about this, send an email to tedxpostevent@ted.com.

3. Upload your photos to Flickr 

Upload all the photographs taken at your event to the TEDx account at Flickr. Find instructions on how to upload pictures in our Video + Photography section.

Upload your TEDx Talk videos using our Media Uploader. Do not upload your videos on any other YouTube channels or video platforms. Find detailed instructions on how to upload your videos in our Video + Photography section.

Note: In order to use the TED Media Uploader tool, you must have a TED.com profile and the date of your event, your event’s duration (e.g. 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.), and location of your event (city, state/province) listed on your TEDx event page.

As you know, this page gives other organizers, your local audience and the global community an updated overview of your event. After your event, make sure to:

  • Add the Flickr tag for your event photos
  • Add your YouTube playlist URL
  • Check that your speaker list is up to date
  • Upload a new photo from your event

Keep in mind, we can’t renew your license until you have updated your profile page.

6. Share with the community

Give back to the TEDx community and share what you learned with other organizers:

  • Post tips on the TEDx Google Group (licensees only)._
  • Share materials that other organizers can customize — program schedules, source code, or just advice — on the TEDx Wiki.
