Ticketing and Event FAQ


When do tickets go on Sale? A limited amount will go on sale at our Kick-Off Party (December 17, 2019). Once those are sold out, the rest go on sale on February 15, 2020.

How much are tickets? Early Bird tickets are $15 off the regular price. Regular price tickets range from $35-50 per person depending on where seating is located. We strive to keep ticket prices for everyone down.  There is no padding on the ticket price, therefore, we do not offer any discount (sorry students).

Are tickets refundable? Yes, until 7 days before the event. If you are outside of that time, you can request a refund directly through Eventbrite. Here are the instructions. Otherwise, please email us.

Are tickets transferable? Yes, tickets are transferable.  You can go directly to Eventbrite, sign in to your account and edit the attendee name on a ticket. If you have any problems, you can email us and we’ll update the ticket.

Do I need to print my ticket? No, save a tree and printer hassle.  All TEDxCharlotte tickets are electronic.  Just bring yourself and your ID and we’ll do the rest.

Does each attendee have to have a ticket? Yes. Every attendee must have a ticket.


Do you Livestream the event? Yes, there is a livestream of the event. We get the URL the day before the event and will post it on our website. If you’d like to host a streaming party, email us.

Where do I park? CPCC has several parking decks and street parking. Additionally, there is public transit directly on Elizabeth Ave.

Does my ticket include lunch? Yes! It also includes coffee throughout the day.

How do I get my t-shirt? You can pre-order them with your ticket or purchase the day of the event. Keep in mind we have a limited amount on the day of the event and they usually sell out by lunch. While we can take credit cards, we love cash as much as the next guy!

Is there an After Party? Traditionally, yes, we’ll find a place to gather, talk about the day and socialize. It is usually within walking distance of the venue.
