Press attendance at TEDxCapeTown events

TEDxCapeTown invites select, relevant reporters / bloggers to cover each event. We give priority to reporters that:

  • Work for media publications / own a blog site capable of reaching influential, relevant target audiences in South Africa and broader Africa. Further international reach would be added value.
  • Have a track record of insightful coverage in areas related to TEDxCapeTown’s brand.
  • Work for media partners that have an existing relationship with TEDxCapeTown.

Media accreditation

We are keen to establish long term media partnerships in the spirit of supporting ‘Ideas worth Spreading’. If you have ideas on how you’d like to be involved, please make contact so that we can meet to discuss your suggestions.

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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.)

About TED

The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman. 

The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
