Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take photos or record the talks?
Since we are recording the event, we do not allow flash photography in the hall. It might distract the presenters.
We have a video crew that will be recording the talks, so you don’t have to. :)

What is the best way to get to the venue?
You could either travel there by private transport or cab. Keyword here is ‘carpool’ people! We are big advocates of commuting via public transport therefore, you can also opt to take an LRT (Light railway transit) to Bangsar LRT and we will have TEDxKL shuttles from the Bangsar LRT station to the venue. Alternatively, you can transit from KL Sentral LRT station and embark on the Komuter to Mid Valley Komuter Station. The Mid Valley Exhibition Centre (situated in the mall) will then be 5 minutes walking distance.

Where do I park and how much?
There are ample parking spaces but they usually fill up pretty fast during weekends, so do come early to locate the best parking space. Parking prices are from RM 3 (first 3 hours) onwards. Do also check out other parking lots nearby the LRT station that offers flat fee (approx. RM 5 – RM 8 per day), then take the TEDxKL shuttle from the Bangsar LRT station to Mid Valley.

What do I get for shelling out RM150 for my ticket?
This is a not-for-profit event and the fees collected helps lower the costs involved in securing the venue, food & beverages, speakers’ travel expenses & accommodation, stage setups, etc. And then the golden opportunity to meet, exchange and have your mind blown away by the presence of so many interesting people like yourself on an intimate, personal level; all in one room? Priceless.
