Support the Community

TEDxTelford is run by volunteers and is a non-profit event to help spread great ideas.
With over 180,000 views, last year’s sponsors enjoyed worldwide exposure when the TEDxTelford videos were watched on the official TED YouTube channel.  Could you do with that level of coverage – never mind the 100 local people in the audience at the event itself?

Sponsorship and ticket sales are how we bring in the money to pay for the essentials; venue, food, equipment, videographer, photographer, signage, and advertising. To help with this we are offering three levels of sponsorship to ensure we can keep the ticket price as low as possible and offer a superb experience.
