Rules on screen usage at TEDxBasel
There are and we ask that you respectfully refrain from using anything with a screen during the two official sessions. *Gasp!* This will be tough for some of you, we know, but is standard practice at many TEDx events to respect the speakers, appreciate the talks and properly immerse yourself in the event.
Please also note there is no wifi available at TEDxBasel. *Double gasp!*
Your ticket registration includes free coffee, drinks, light refreshments and apéro. Hooray!
More substantial lunch options and other snacks will be available for purchase via various food trucks that will be across the road during registration, lunch and the breaks. There are currently a range of delicious choices and cuisines available from the food trucks including some options for our vegetarian and vegan friends.
The TEDxBasel book
Why yes, you’re in luck! We will have a number of books on sale at the conference including the selected TEDxBasel book. Our book partner curates a great selection each year for you to dive deeper into the ideas presented on stage. Both cash and credit cards will be accepted.
