An update about TEDxNorwichED and COVID-19

June 17 2020

An update about TEDxNorwichED and COVID-19 New date for your day of inspiration, ideas and fun.
Massive apologies- the email below was meant to be sent on the 31st May, but some technical gremlins crept into the system!

===
Hi,

As you will be aware, we had hoped for  TEDxNowichED to take place on he 27th June.  However, as our fight with COVID-19 is a constantly evolving one, it is now clear that this date is not going to be achievable. 

Therefore, we have made the decision to postpone the event for everyone's safety.

TEDxNorwichED has been postponed until the 10th October 2020.

We remain determined that TEDxNowichED: Make The Difference will take place when it is safe and practical to do so.  Our wonderful speakers have been working tirelessly on their talks, which are shaping up to be truly amazing, thought-provoking and inspirational. Their ideas deserve to be heard.

As this situation develops, we will, of course, continue to update you if this date needs to change and we will remain guided by the latest scientific advice from Public Health England (PHE).  We will only run the event when we can be sure of the safety in doing so. 

What does this mean for you, our valued audience?
  • If you have tickets for the event, these will automatically be valid for the 10th October  You do not need to do anything.
  • If you do not yet have tickets, these will remain available on our website until our last 10 or so tickets have sold out.  We will not be releasing further tickets after this at this time so that we have maximum flexibility in terms of limits on attendee numbers.
  • If you have booked a hotel around the original date for  TEDxNorwichED, then this email will hopefully provide you with the evidence you need to take advantage of the relaxed cancellation and re-arrangement policies that have been introduced by most hotels.
  • If you have got tickets, but are unable to attend on the rearranged date, we will be in touch with you nearer the time of the event to confirm your next steps.   
At the event, we will, of course, be stepping up our usual high-level of cleanliness and infection control to the highest possible levels. 

We look forward to sharing our amazing speakers with you on the 10th October, whilst meeting the scientific recommendations and following the latest advice.

We are also working on some exciting virtual programming and experiences to help give you your TEDxNorwichED 'fix'  between now and October- we will be in touch soon with more information! 

Many thanks for your understanding and support.

The TEDxNorwichED team.

An update about TEDxNorwichED and COVID-19

March 18 2020

An update about TEDxNorwichED and COVID-19 New date for your day of inspiration, ideas and fun.
Hi,

As you will be aware, the situation regarding COVID-19 is changing rapidly, and therefore we wanted to provide an additional update regarding TEDxNorwichED 2020. 

TEDxNorwichED has been postponed until the 27th June 2020. 

Given the new scientific work carried out over the weekend by the government and the subsequent escalation in measures advised, keeping our original date of the 27th April would cause a great deal of uncertainty to all of the TEDxNorwichED community - including you, our valued attendees and the wider community, not to mention our amazing suppliers, partners, and wonderful speakers. 

However, we are determined that TEDxNowichED will take place when it is safe and practical to do so.  Our wonderful speakers have been working tirelessly on their talks, which are shaping up to be truly amazing, thought-provoking and inspirational. Their ideas deserve to be heard.

Looking at the guidance, it appears that the worst of the social distancing measures will be relaxed within 12 weeks. There is, of course no certainty with this novel virus, but this also matches the timeline experienced for these measures in China. 

We have therefore worked hard over the past couple of days to secure an alternative date, of Saturday 27th June 2020 for TEDxNorwichED.  

As this situation develops, we will, of course, continue to update you if this date needs to change and we will remain guided by the latest scientific advice from Public Health England (PHE).

What does this mean for you, our valued audience?
  • If you have tickets for the event, these will automatically be valid for the 27th of June.  You do not need to do anything.
  • If you do not yet have tickets, these will remain available on our website until our last 20 or so tickets have sold out.
  • If you have booked a hotel around the original date for  TEDxNorwichED, then this email will hopefully provide you with the evidence you need to take advantage of the relaxed cancellation and re-arrangement policies that have been introduced by most hotels.
  • If you have got tickets, but are unable to attend on the rearranged date, we will be in touch with you nearer the time of the event to confirm your next steps.   
At the event, we will of course, be stepping up our usual high-level of cleanliness and infection control to the highest possible levels. 

We look forward to sharing our amazing speakers with you on the 27th June,  whilst meeting the scientific recommendations and following the latest advice.

Many thanks for your understanding and support.

The TEDxNorwichED team.
