TEDxHyderabad 2019 – Attendee Etiquettes


Team TEDxHyderabad 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 have put together some attendee instructions that are good for you to go through them before the event!

Registration starts 7:30 AM onwards on Sunday, September 22nd.

Collect your LUNCH COUPON at the time of registration. One coupon serves only one person. Keep your coupon carefully to avoid any inconvenience.

PLEASE AVOID BRINGING LARGE HAND BAGS OR LAPTOPS TO THE EVENT FOR SECURITY REASONS.

Here are some amazingly useful tips and information for you to have the best experience at the event with your wonderful 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 according to your registration number. You can pick them up by mentioning your registration ID sent in your confirmation email/ SMS. We will be onsite to resolve any issue or confusion.

2. THE QUEUE
The wait to get into the Main Stage area is also a great way to meet new attendees. Do ensure that you make the most of it by saying hello the person standing next to you. The moment you hear music being played is the cue to begin to head towards 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 Convention Center is massive with a wonderful layout. 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 venue. Every attendee is seated. There is also ample space across the different seating zones.

4. MOVEMENT
Movement of 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 session 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 TEDx rules and must NOT be posted online in any form.

6. MOBILE PHONES/ TABLETS

7. ONSITE HELP
Team TEDxHyderabad will be available onsite at each major point to help you with information. You can easily spot one of us!

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 minutes long and the Lunch Break is 80 minutes 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, it 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!

Once the door closes, we cannot open until a break.
