Frequently Asked Questions:

How much are tickets?

TEDxBoston is generously underwritten by our sponsors so tickets are free.

How do I get a ticket?

Due to limited capacity and high demand, tickets are given based on an application process. Prior to an event, we will open the application process and send notification through the mailing list and post it to the website. Join the TEDxBoston mailing list

What if I don’t get a ticket?

If we are unable to provide you with a ticket to attend the event in person there are still many other ways to participate. Gather with friends and watch a livestream of the entire event on our website, create an avatar in our interactive online auditorium powered by Avaya to connect with attendees from around the globe, and/or listen to a broadcast on 90.9FM WBUR, Boston’s NPR News Station. In addition to all the ways to participate live, we also post videos of every talk and performance online shortly after the event.

Can I bring a guest to the event?

Due to capacity we can only give one ticket per accepted application. Please encourage your guest to fill out the application as well.

I want to bring a group from my business/school, how do I do that?

We are unable to guarantee the admittance of a group to the event. If you are part of a group that is interested in the event we highly suggest that you organize a meet-up to watch the livestream together. Watching in a group is a great way to get the most out of the talks!

I am interested in organizing a meet-up to show the livestream, what do I need?

All you need is a computer connected to the internet and a group of interested people! We will provide the feed for the livestream on our website the day of the event. If you would like information about TED, TEDx, or TEDxBoston to provide to your attendees let us know through the Contact Us page. If you organize a meet-up we would love it if you could send us photos and feedback at
