Getting Ready for TEDxOakville? Here’s What You Need to Know
With just days to go before TEDxOakville, we’re putting the final preparations in place for what’s shaping up to be a day to remember. Because we’re aiming to completely fill the day with amazing moments, we also need you to be prepared. Here’s what you need to know:
Doors to MacDonald-Heaslip Hall (D Wing) will open at 8:00am and we encourage everyone to arrive well before the 9:00am start time. Please check in with registration upon arrival and retrieve your name badge. We will have a coat check for you, and volunteers will be available to guide you. Lunch will be served.
Cell phones, Computers & Cameras
Cell phones must be turned off when inside the theatre. No cameras or laptops will be allowed, except in the last rows of the theatre, as not to disturb other attendees. If you are late to TEDxOakville, you will not be permitted inside the theatre until there is a break between speakers.
Like we said, it’s a long day. Casual attire is encouraged.
The Theater Will be Completely Full
Pretend it’s a flight. Please arrive early to secure a seat and we appreciate you sitting up front, don’t be shy. Make lots of friends. Sit in a few different places.
