Due to the very large volume of applications we receive each week, the application review process typically takes a full eight weeks after a proposal is submitted. Each application is reviewed individually in the order in which it was received.
As a reminder, you cannot begin organizing an event until your application is approved. Details such as date, venue, speakers, themes, etc. must be subject to change during the licensing process. Organizing an event only begins when you receive your license approval.
Any updates regarding your application will be sent to the email address you used to register your TED.com account. We are unable to accommodate requests to discuss your application by phone.
