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. Currently, we are unable to provide complimentary tickets to the event.

About TEDx, x=independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self organised 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-organised events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.*

About TED

TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On, we're building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world's most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.

In fact, everything we do — from our TED Talks videos to the projects sparked by the TED Prize, from the global TEDx community to the TED-Ed lesson series — is driven by this goal: How can we best spread great ideas?

TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. Our agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation.
