With so many hundreds of complex applications to review, it's imperative for the TEDx licensing team to address them in the order in which they are received. Attempting to prioritize certain license reviews based solely on an organizer's desired date would be extremely difficult to manage. Consider that all applicants want their license as quickly as possible. Putting any applications aside could quickly spiral out of control as several hundred more are submitted in the interim, perhaps themselves also seeking prioritization.
Please expect a minimum of six weeks until your license can be reviewed (even for a renewal). Remember, you cannot start planning your event until your license has been approved, so we recommend scheduling your event at least three months after licensing approval.
We appreciate your understanding!
