Before you apply to renew an event, you are required to complete your post-event checklist. This includes uploading your videos and photos, and updating your event page. We’ll take the completeness of these tasks into consideration when you apply to renew your license.
In order to renew your license, you will need to submit an application for renewal. Regardless of the status of the license, your renewal application will need to provide a proposal for the upcoming event. For example, what type of ideas and presentations will you be seeking for the next event? Have you considered a new theme? Brainstorm ideas for talks before you reapply. This gives us an idea of how this event will continue to develop your TEDx community.
If your license is still active, you can log in to your TED.com account, open the Events page from your profile, and click ‘Renew’ next to your TEDx event name. Please note: if your license is still active, this is the only way to apply for that event name. If you or a new licensee attempt to apply for a new license for the same event, the event name will be marked as ‘unavailable’ until the current license has expired (or you formally relinquish it).
If your license has expired, you will need to submit a new application for that name. Please note: once a license has expired, the name is available for other applicants.
