NB: Personalised Invitations & TEDxSydney Refund Policy
For those applying to attend any of our events, please note that your invitation to attend any particular event is personal to you and is not transferable. Should you confirm your registration by paying, and then later come to the conclusion that you are in fact unable to attend, provided that you let us know prior to any stated deadline, we can guarantee a full refund. For TEDxSydney 2013, this deadline for a guaranteed refund is Sunday 21 April 2013. If you notify us after that day, we will endeavour to fill your place with someone else, and only if we are able to do so can we provide you with your refund.
