COVID Policy

We are taking your safety at our event seriously.

TEDxManhattanBeach will be following all LA County Covid-19 Guidelines. Entry will require proof of vaccination (vaccine card, digital image or QR code) or proof of a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event. The testing requirement includes people who cannot get a vaccine, such as children under 12.

In addition, we will be following all MBUSD Covid-19 protocols. This requires that all attendees, exhibitors, vendors and volunteers wear masks indoors and outdoors at all times when on any District campus or facility except to remove them momentarily when eating or drinking, unless they are able to maintain six (6) feet physical distance from all others.

If you are purchasing tickets for someone in addition to yourself, it is your responsibility to make sure your additional guests understand the TEDxManhattanBeach Covid policy. Being unaware of the policy does not change the requirements and no exceptions to the policy will be made.

We will be providing attendees with a variety of viewing options, allowing them to choose on the day of the event the one which best suits them. Attendees can choose to watch the speakers in the auditorium (with additional spacing between attendees), watch a livestream in the cafeteria or enjoy watching the speakers on their own devices while seated in outside areas using a private link available only to attendees.

Recognizing that as the situation evolves, so will our approach to keeping you safe. We thank you for your patience and flexibility as we manage this and ask that you check back at for updates.

Please note: All sales are final. Should COVID protocols require limited attendance or eliminate the possibility of an in-person event, you will be able to view the speakers via a private link available only to ticketed individuals.  TEDxManhattanBeach is a 501c3 and a 100% volunteer organization.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxManhattanBeach, where x = independently organized TED event.  TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Please join us at our event.
