Why was the TEDxFreiburg Livestream 2020 cancelled?

Due to the rapidly spreading corona pandemic, the current corona ordinance of the state of Baden-Württemberg of November 2, and our own conviction, we decided to cancel TEDxFreiburg 2020. The decision was not easy. We wish we could offer an acceptable and high quality solution for the event that works despite the distance rules. But for us as a part of society, our top priority at the moment is to work together to contain the pandemic in order to be able to celebrate TEDxFreiburg together as soon as possible with a clear conscience.

When will the event take place instead?

At the moment there is no alternative date for TEDxFreiburg 2020 and it is quite certain that we will not organize a conference this year. For next year, we are confident that we will be able to realise the event – perhaps even with an audience on site.

What will happen with my ticket?

There will be the possibility to use your purchased ticket for the upcoming event next year or to get it reimbursed. In the second case, of course, we refund the complete ticket price including all fees. We’ll reach out to all buyers within the next few days. If you have any questions on that, feel free to write to us at contact@tedxfreiburg.com.

What happens to the announced speakers?

We have the assurance from all the speakers that have already been announced that they will be on our stage at the upcoming TEDxFreiburg event. We are very pleased and grateful for this willingness. You can find out who will also be a speaker at the next event as soon as possible on our channels.
