August 30th, 2014

How do I purchase a ticket to TEDxVancouver?

If you…

… have an invitation email from TEDxVancouver:
1. Click the link in the email to visit localhost.tedxvancouver.com
2. Complete the Poll
3. Continue to the ticketing order form and select up to 2 tickets. Provide your billing email or Login with Facebook.
4. Continue the checkout process as instructed. Provide billing information only (email, address, credit card info), NOT ticket recipient information. You will have a chance to transfer your 2nd ticket (if purchased) and/or sponsor tickets after payment has been finalized.


… do not have an invitation email from TEDxVancouver:
Please Request Tickets online via: https://guestmanager.com/forms/6575. You will receive an email from us as soon as tickets are available.


The event page says “Invitation Required.” What do I do?
Our initial release of tickets is by invitation only. If you have received an invitation by email, please follow the instructions provided there. If you did not receive an invitation email, then please go to https://guestmanager.com/forms/6575 to request tickets for Phase 2. You will receive an email from us as soon as tickets are available.

If you are sure you’ve received an invite, but still cannot continue to the ticket checkout, please email support@guestmanager.com. In your email, be sure to include the invitation email you received from TEDxVancouver and also the email address of the account you are currently logged into (where it says “Invitation Required”).


I took the TILT Poll again, but now it’s saying “Having trouble? Contact support.”
This means you have answered our poll, but did not purchase tickets in the same sitting. Please forward your invitation email to support@guestmanager.com and let us know of the issue. We will provide you a checkout link for your invitation.


I did not receive an Order Confirmation Email or I cannot find my tickets.
Please search your email inbox for support@guestmanager.com. Be sure to check inside Spam and Promotion folders. Still can’t find it? Try logging into your ticket account at http://guestmanager.com/login. You may need to use the “Forgot Password” link. Still nothing? Please email our support, and include any relevant information such as your order number, invite email, name, and email address.


What are your payment options?
We accept both Interac Online (RBC, Scotia Bank, BMO, TD) and Credit Card (VISA, Mastercard, Discover, AMEX).


Can I order by phone?
Because our event is by Invitation Only, you must follow the instructions in the email from TEDxVancouver to purchase your ticket. Orders can only be accepted online—not by phone.


Can I buy tickets in person or at a box office?
No. Tickets are only available online. Please see our website for further information.


Are there refunds?
All sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges. In the event that TEDxVancouver is canceled – refunds will be issued automatically.


How are my tickets delivered?
All tickets are sent electronically by email to the billing email address provided during checkout. You will be issued a single barcode that is valid for all of your tickets.


What do I need to bring to get into the event?
You need to bring your barcode. Our ticketing system issues you one barcode per person. If you have 2 tickets on your account, then that barcode is valid for both tickets. If you transfer one of your tickets, then your barcode becomes only valid for 1 ticket – and the transferee will be issued their own barcode.


Can I buy more than two tickets?
Please contact our group ticket sales department: tickets@localhost.tedxvancouver.com


Can I bring my barcode on my phone?
Yes! Please do. You do not need to print out your barcode.


How can I ensure my barcode is still valid?
You may log into your ticket account at http://guestmanager.com/login. All of your tickets are listed there. Click “Send me my barcode” to get emailed a fresh copy.


What will appear on my credit card statement?

The charge will appear as “CCGM.CO*TEDxVancouver.”
