DEAR FELLOW TEDx ORGANIZERS!

The TEDxTUM team is delighted to invite you to TEDxWeekendMunich on 20-22 May 2022!

A TEDxWeekend is a weekend-long international gathering of TEDx organizers, including team members. It consists of 48 action-packed hours, from Friday evening to Sunday, with city tours and adventures, workshops, and fun social hangouts. These weekends are designed to help organizers connect with each other, celebrate the TED spirit and mission, and fall in love with the place in which they are held. Our team is also very happy to welcome special guests Caroline Burke and Will Davis from TED!

We’re incredibly excited to bring the community together for this in-person gathering in Munich, Germany. Each of our events has their own “Secret Sauce” that makes them special – let’s explore what our collective, regional and individual specialties and peculiarities are and how we can learn from each other. We can’t wait to discuss, play, exchange ideas, problem-solve and have adventures with you!

Register by Sunday, 8 May – the sooner, the better!

Travel & Accommodation

We recommend arriving on Friday before dinner, leaving on Sunday night (don’t leave the venue before the grand finale at 15:00!) and not staying directly close to the central train station because there is lots of construction.

Options close to the TUM campus include Ibis München City, Leonardo Boutique Hotel Munich, Hotel Erzgiesserei Europe or Wombat’s City Hostel. Booking an AirBnB is also a decent solution!

We are happy to provide letters of invitation for visa applications! Please reach out to tedxweekendmunich (at) tedxtum.com and include the full name and passport number of each person as well as the address of the embassy.

COVID-19

All participants must present one of the following:

  • Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 in accordance with German regulations
  • Proof of recovery from COVID-19 in accordance with German regulations
  • A negative PCR test taken maximum 48 hours before you get your badge AND a negative antigen test taken on the same day (this can be a self-test you take upon arrival at registration).

If you are traveling from another country, please check the current requirements for traveling to Germany.

We take your – and our – health and safety seriously and we will be taking measures going beyond the legal requirements to contain the spread of COVID-19. External venues such as public transportation and restaurants will follow the legal regulations which will likely be lifted over the course of April and May. We will inform you of the applicable hygiene rules and regulations approx. 2 weeks before the event. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

In the event that we are unable to carry out the gathering in person, we will revert to a virtual option and refund the price of your ticket (excl. fees).

Register Here (ends Sunday, 8 May or when tickets are sold out!)

If you do not complete your purchase within that time, your ticket will be canceled and someone else can get your spot at TEDxWeekendMunich.
