Please have a (digital) copy of your ticket with you. If you bough a student ticket, you will need to show your student ID at the entrance when your barcode is being scanned.


We have 14 speakers who are 100% ready to give the best of themselves on stage. From the 4th industrial revolution, over dentistry and design thinking, all the way to a chilling personal story. Have a sneak peek here.


Just like in 2018, this year’s event takes place in the Arenberg, in the center of Antwerp. Try carpooling or parking your car on one of the P+R’s around town. From there, take a bus/tram to the Central Station (15 min walk) or the Stadspark tram stop.


The auditorium doors open at 9:00, the perfect moment to pick your favourite spot (free seating). The first talk starts at 10:00 sharp. Be aware that entry to the auditorium is only allowed between two talks. The venue itself is accessible from 8:30, so please plan ample time to pass the ticketing desk to pickup your wristband, bring your coat to the cloakroom, and have a coffee to wake up your brain.

Food and Drinks

Throughout the day, coffee, tea, and water are available free of charge. Soft drinks are available at your own expense, and alcoholic drinks are not served until after the last talk. For this year, we’ve carefully selected another food story, for your vegetarian lunch.

Conversation Starter

TEDxAntwerp is a networking event. During the breaks, we offer the possibility to meet new and interesting people through Conversation Starter. Sign up, and we’ll help you find the most interesting fellow participants.


Like every year, we’ll have engaging workshops during the event. This year’s workshops are organized by UAntwerpen and Awesome Antwerp among others. We’ll reveal new workshops soon!
