When TEDxWellington 2016 was announced, only the theme of ‘trust’ and the date of the event were made public. The tickets were put on sale with all of the speaker details and location kept entirely secret.
At the event, there was no programme provided to outline the next speaker with delegates left in the dark about what would be up next. Photography within the venue was also strictly prohibited with only the official photographer allowed to document the experience.
At the end of the day delegates received a photographic memento in the form of fifteen A5 cards bound together by a rubber band. The pack of cards served as a reminder of the day containing information about the event and the speakers.
