TEDxSydney 2013 will take place on Saturday 4 May 2013 within the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House before a live audience of 2,200. It will be simulcast throughout the public areas of the House for members of the public and visitors to enjoy on the day. It will also be streamed live to a worldwide audience ... viewing from home, the workplace or one of many planned satellite events. As with any TED event, the programming will blend talks and performances with interspersed “tasty video bits.” For 2013, and for the first time, food will be more closely integrated with the day's proceedings ... and, driven by TEDxSydney Food Curator Jill Dupleix, will actually form part of the programming. More news on that front coming soon :)

Applications to Attend TEDxSydney Opening to the Public on Saturday 16 February. We'll be notifying you in advance. Be sure to join our community and mailing list HERE.

A$200 (GST inclusive) will entitle successful applicants to an unreserved seat in the Concert Hall for all 4 sessions of TEDxSydney 2013. They will also be entitled to: all food and beverages throughout the day (morning tea, lunch & afternoon tea), admission to the after event cocktail party, and a conference tote containing a few surprises.
