TEDxSavannah Postpones 2020 Event Due to COVID-19 Threat

Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Friday, March 27th, 2020

The organizing committee for TEDxSavannah -- an independently organized, day-long event based on the international TED talk phenomenon -- has postponed the TEDxSavannah event originally scheduled for Friday, June 5, 2020 due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) threat.

The health and safety of TEDxSavannah speakers, volunteers and attendees remains a primary concern. The current public health danger, combined with uncertainty regarding the impact of the pandemic in coming months, requires that event organizers move forward with an abundance of caution.  

“We look forward to hosting TEDxSavannah in 2021 and are planning to have the same Standard Deviation theme and the same amazing speakers,” said participating organizer Laura Lee Bocade. “This was an extremely difficult decision and we are grateful for everyone’s support and understandingFor those of you who have so generously sponsored our event or purchased a ticket to attend TEDxSavannah 2020, we ask that you consider supporting us despite this cancellation if you have the ability to do so..”

Tickets for 2020 TEDxSavannah will be valid for the rescheduled event in 2021. Current ticket holders will receive special reserved seating for the 2021 event.
