13. What if I need an Accessibility Accommodation for TED? 

For TED events, you are asked while registering to indicate the area(s) in which you will need assistance. Once the registration process is complete, a staff member will follow up with you to review your survey responses and discuss your needs.

We ask that all requests for reasonable accommodations at our events be made as early as possible and at least two weeks in advance of the event, so that we may best meet individual needs and provide outside services, if necessary. On-site requests will be met to the best of our ability; however, available resources may be limited or unavailable. If you have additional questions please email 


If your question has still not been answered please email Brannan Meyers at
