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. However, if you’d like to snap images to share on the go, please be reminded to turn off all flashes.
What is the best way to get to the venue?
We are big advocates of commuting via public transport therefore, you can also opt to take an LRT (Light railway transit) to Bukit Jalil LRT and we will have TEDxKL shuttles from the Bukit Jalil LRT station to Calvary Convention Centre. Please look out for the TEDxKL signage along the LRT station to be guided to the bus. We are trying our best to have high frequency of transfers, so bear with us if it’s a little slow.
You could either travel there by private transport or cab. Keyword here is ‘carpool’ people!
Where do I park and how much?
Parking lots at the Calvary Convention Centre are Free but limited, therefore carpool if possible. There is also free parking lots at the park opposite the Convention Centre. We are working to ensure the gates remain open till late evening. Bring along an umbrella in case it rains as there are no shelter from the park to the convention centre.
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 (breakfast, lunch, dinner), 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.
This is ONLY applicable to participants who have not provided all the names of their participants when buying bulk amounts of tickets. If you had already submitted your names, kindly ignore this instruction.
Is it a free-seating event?
Yes, so come early to secure your seats. With that being said, we like playing the ‘musical chairs mentality’. Shuffle around now and then and sit in different places. The prize is in getting to know the person in the next seat.
Can we buy tickets at the door?
We are not certain of walk-ins tickets availability, therefore we encourage you to purchase online as soon as you can. It’s transferable, so if you can’t make it, find a suitable benefactor to attend.
I would like to buy tickets in bulk, can I get a discount?
Every single contribution is important and highly appreciated in aid of reducing operational costs of the event. Bulk purchase discounts are only available for any single purchase of 30 tickets or more.
For those who want to purchase bulk tickets (more than 30 tickets), kindly email your request to [email protected] and we will forward an instruction to follow for payments, submission of participants details, etc.
