*Note:  The above is not an exhaustive list.

There are more registrations than seats, if you have received a Wait-List email, our apologies and we regretfully have to tell you that there's simply no space left.  But you'll be among the first to know about our next TEDx event.

If you've received a Confirmation-To-Attend email, it has details and about 'stuff' you need to bring, because there will be interactive, fun activities that we'll all participate in.

We advise you to arrive early to secure a seat because if the auditorium is filled to capacity, the only option left will be to sit on the carpet.

Looking forward to a most TED-rific idea event :-)
