We are excited to see you all soon. The TEDx experience is a unique one with the entire day designed with a thought behind the same. We are adding in some amazing useful tips and info for you to have the best experience at the event with your amazing co-attendees.

1. The BADGE
The Badge is probably the largest you would have ever worn. It is a very important component that allows you access to the event. Please DO NOT lose the Badge and display it where required and when requested to the volunteers. The Badge has 3 conversation starters which most of you have sent us! They are a great way to engage with your co-attendees at the event. We hope you have chosen them well!
The badges will be arranged in an alphabetical order and neatly segregated, you can pick them up by mentioning your registration ID sent in your confirmation email. We will be onsite to resolve any issue or confusion if any.

2. THE QUEUE
The wait to get into the Auditorium is also a great way to meet new attendees. The moment you hear music being played is the Cue to begin to head toward the Auditorium. The doors open at 9 AM and will close at 9:20 AM. Please finish registering and plan to be on time!

3. SEATING
Please be mindful of the fact that the Auditorium is a 1500 seater with a wonderful layout as well. You can experience all the sessions from various vantage points. Please fill in the EMPTY SPACES in between. Please DO NOT reserve your seats on your way out during the breaks! Our Team will be onsite to help you with the arrangement.
Please DO NOT stand on the Sides or at the BACK in the Main Auditorium. Every Attendee is Seated. There is also ample space across the different seating zones..

4. MOVEMENT
Movement of the Attendees when the talks begin is NOT ALLOWED. We will be filming and people moving around is a distraction except the media team which has their set pattern. We urge you to respect this as not to cause undue inconvenience to your co-attendees. Please BE SEATED while the talks are going on and can plan to move ONLY if required after the talk is done. We want you all to immerse in the journey of the Speaker for 18 mins!

5. PHOTOGRAPHY/ VIDEOGRAPHY
Flash Photography is NOT ALLOWED as it interferes with the recording. Kindly refrain from the same. Videography is NOT ALLOWED according to the rules and must not be posted online in any form.

6. MOBILE PHONES/ TABLETS
Please switch off your mobile phone or can place it in the silent mode. Please ensure that the lights on your screen are low. Please avoid disturbing your co-attendees by the use of the same. Attendees who wish to use the same for social media may occupy the last 2 rows in the Auditorium.

7. ONSITE HELP
Team TEDxHyderabad will be available onsite at each major point to help you with information. You can find them with the Blue Tag on their Badges.

8. CONVERSATIONS
Don’t be shy to say Hi! You will make some amazing friends and explore exciting collaborations moving forward. You can always practice to let someone know what you do in 2 sentences! Helps to also connect through the conversation starters. We have designed 3 Breaks to encourage the same. The smaller breaks are 45 mins long and the Lunch Break is 90 mins long. Start one, Join in, Facilitate cool conversations all through the day!

9. CARDS
Never too many for you to get! As you will be meeting many people, actually helps to write a note behind the card to help you remember the conversation or the follow up point discussed. Helps to connect better post the event!

10. APP
We have designed an exclusive App for the Attendees of TEDxHyderabad which aims to help build the connect stronger between them. We have released the same on the Google Play Store and also on the Apple iStore! Happy Connecting!
