Behind the Scenes at TEDxTableMountain
Normally, we are not able to provide media accreditation or giveaways as our modest budget does not extend to this. We are a voluntary organisation and we work hard to secure sponsorship and gifts-in-kind where we can to keep the ticket costs as accessible as possible. We are thrilled that our partners are making it possible to host the event for free to all attendees in 2015.
We are keen to establish long term media partnerships where you can support the community and help spread the ideas worth spreading. If you have ideas for how you’d like to be involved, please make contact and we’d love to meet to discuss options to support you in supporting TEDxTableMountain.

The difference between TED and TEDx
While we appreciate any coverage, we kindly ask that all journalists and/or bloggers be respectful of the difference between the TED and TEDx brands. The ‘x’ in ‘TEDx’ stands for “independently organized events.” Any headline or text which implies “TED” is coming to CapeTown is misleading. For more information on TEDx, visit www.ted.com/tedx
All press releases, either accredited by TEDxTableMountain or when blogging in your private capacity should contain the following:
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
