Since its inception in 2009, TEDxManchester has been blessed with great support by the Manchester TEDx community and sold out every year the event has been held. Most recently in 2016, TEDxMCR sold out in 4 hours; in 2017 it sold out in 2.5 hours.
For 2018, we made the tough decision to say a fond farewell to our former venue HOME and move to the Bridgewater Hall to allow us to expand our capacity significantly.
With an expanded capacity we doubled our the number of tickets we put up for sale and
We were literally stunned to see the entire allotment of tickets go in 10 minutes. At one stage we had 400 people on the website buying tickets at the same time.
While we’d originally planned to wait another week to put more tickets up for sale, we realised we had to put them up for sale immediately. The extra 600 tickets were sold by the end of the day totally 1400 people registered.
Thanks to all who persevered Thursday to register. The sheer number of people on the website made things slow and difficult at times.
Most importantly a huge thanks for the enormous support the Manchester community has given to TEDxManchester. We can’t wait to announce our speaker lineup later this Autumn and welcome you to The Bridgewater Hall in February.
Thank you Manchester TEDsters!
(Update): We’ve been in touch with the venue and we will be releasing another block of tickets on Thursday 5th October at 12 noon, make sure to JOIN OUR MAILING LIST for a ticket alert.
