What is TEDMED Live?

Watch a live simulcast of TEDMED's stage program, in high-definition video, live or on-demand.

We encourage our global community to make the most of their simulcast experience, by hosting a gathering with friends, colleagues, and community members. Gatherings enhance the viewing experience and allow for deeper exploration of the topics discussed during our stage program.

 


 

Who Should Join?

Come one, come all! Anyone one who is interested in science, health, and medicine should join in viewing TEDMED's stage program via Livestream. The mission of the TEDMED Live Program is to share TEDMED's content, creating opportunities for organizations and industry leaders on the front lines of health and medicine to come together, experience stories shared on the TEDMED stage, and inspire the exchange of different perspectives and new ideas around the world.

We encourage you to gather members of your organization to view communally, discuss the topics presented, and participate in the conversation through social media using #TEDMED. Not interested in hosting a gathering? Not a problem; you can watch anywhere on your own from your mobile phone, tablet, or computer. Have a remote gathering by sharing your access code with others in your approved organization, and host a virtual hangout to dive deeper into the stage program.

That's why, thanks to our partners, we make TEDMED Live FREE for qualifying teaching hospitals, government agencies, medical schools, schools of public health, nursing schools, and other academic institutions. We also offer a special rate for non-profit organizations and a corporate rate.  


 

Where is TEDMED Live?

Video will be made available at TEDMEDlive.org.  Every approved organization is provided a special code that can be used to access the TEDMED program. 

We encourage participants to host a gathering to enhance their viewing experience. While TEDMED Live can reach anyone with streaming capabilities, discussing the topics presented on stage with a local group of colleagues, students, or friends enriches the community experience.  For more information on how to make the most of your viewing experience, click here

To help you take care of all of the planning and logistics, we've provided some helpful information below. Choose from the links below to jump to a specific section.   


Selecting a Venue

From a logistics perspective, it's best to select venues that already have a built-in infrastructure, such as a university or corporate auditorium. Things to keep in mind:

  • Internet connectivity required
  • Ability to project video on high-quality HD monitors or screens
  • Large enough to accommodate your entire audience, yet intimate enough to foster conversations
  • For a larger gathering, a raised stage with good lines of sight for everyone helps with a panel discussion
  • Space to mingle, have lunch, enjoy each others company
  • No outside noise
  • Bathrooms conveniently located
  • Comfortable seating

Currating Your Audience

Inviting viewers from multiple disciplines and fields is critical to creating an environment that generates unexpected connections and collaborations among your guests.

TEDMED Live presents an extraordinary opportunity to build relationships – strengthening those that are established and fostering new ones. Consider hosting lunches, dinners, or cocktail parties and inviting influential members of your organization to enhance the conversation and connect the stage program topics to your community.

Be sure to review our Stage Program, and invite local experts on the topics we'll be exploring. This will enhance the discussions you have between viewing sessions.

Engaging Your Audience

Programming
When planning out your gathering, consider ways to highlight voices of local subject matter experts to enhance your audience's understanding of the topics presented. Prepare discussion questions that guide the conversation in the room, have smaller group activities to explore topics more in-depth, or simply build in time for reflection on what people in the room just heard. 

Organize healthy activities
Consider organizing a run, walk, yoga, or another exercise activity to start TEDMED Live on a healthy note. Provide healthy snacks throughout the day. Have a meditation session during a break. 

Participate in the Global Conversation
Incorporate ways for your audience to participate in the global discussion via social platforms using #TEDMED. Whether it's sharing the highlights of your discussions, or asking questions of those who are in the room at Palm Springs, your audience should feel a part of a larger community.

Promoting TEDMED Live at your Institution

To help you promote your TEDMED Live gathering, we've put together a package of helpful documents you can use to create some buzz and get the word out. This package includes posters, flyers, email templates, and more that you can customize and use to share the event.

Promotional Package                                     TEDMED Stage Program

It's important to make sure you get the word out. In today's world, there are plenty of options to help you do that efficiently and easily. Choose from the links below to jump to a specific section.    


Spreading the Word on Your Campus


The following are simple ways to spread the word about TEDMED Live on your campus:

Social Media

  • Social media sharing can go a long way, and it's free! Click here for more information.

Common Areas

  • Hang posters in common areas: dining halls, local cafés, bathrooms, department bulletin boards, bars, and libraries.
  • Does your college allow sidewalk chalking? If so, chalk lets you create enormous billboards that are certain to be seen. Buy an inexpensive bucket of sidewalk chalk (the thick kind) and bring those well-traveled sidewalks on campus to life!

Academic Departments

  • Email the heads of departments that you think will want to experience TEDMED Live (think medicine, science, technology, and policy). 
  • Visit the department administrative assistant and see if you can leave a stack of flyers or quarter cards for students and faculty. Better yet, see if the administrative assistant will leave a flyer in everyone’s mailbox (a common and often successful request).
  • See if a department head will pay for an advertisement in the school newspaper; our poster is a handy template.
  • Ask the department to announce your TEDMED Live gathering. This is normally done in an email blast to the department, or to its website activity board.

School Newspaper

  • Contact the editors of your school newspaper to tell them about TEDMED Live Streaming. Ask them to post an announcement about it, and to attend – they may want to do a write-up of the event.

Student Clubs

  • Send an email to the presidents of student clubs that you think will want to experience TEDMED Live (again, think science, technology, design, innovation, and policy, plus pre-med, wellness groups, entrepreneurs, etc.). 
  • See if student club presidents will send out an email blast to their members announcing your TEDMED Live gathering using our template in the promo package.
  • Enthusiastic club presidents may be willing to hand out flyers/quarter cards at their next meeting.
  • If you are looking for extra hands to help you put on your TEDMED Live gathering, have the club presidents ask their members to volunteer.

Student Affairs Department

  • Contact your school’s student affairs department to find out about options for free announcements in student periodicals and email blasts.
  • Many student newspapers will have a weekly or monthly list of events on campus. See if your TEDMED Live gathering can be listed in this section of the newspaper.
  • Many times, the student activities governing body will have funds set aside for emergency and last minute events on campus; see if you are eligible for funds to cover copy costs and ads.

Spreading the Word at Your Organization


The following are simple ways to let your colleagues know about TEDMED Live:

Internal Communications Department

  • Talk to your organization’s internal communications, training, and development as well as HR departments about sending out an email to employees announcing a live viewing of TEDMED talks at your company. .
  • See if your organization’s internal communications, training, and development, as well as HR departments, will put up flyers in designated announcement areas around your institution.
  • Speak to these departments about other opportunities to spread the word, such as an announcement in the employee area of the company website, an advertisement in internal print material, or a flyer/quarter card in employee mailboxes. 

Common Areas

  • Hang posters in common areas. If your company allows it, hang your posters in eating areas, near vending machines, restrooms, department bulletin boards, and anywhere else you are able to.

Social Media

  • Social media sharing can go a long way. Click here for more information.

Using Social Media

Facebook

We encourage all Approved TEDMED Live organizations to join our TEDMED Live Facebook Group (coming soon).

There you will find great tools to plan and promote your gathering as well as ways to connect with our growing community. Additionally, find ways to bring your perspective to Palm Springs during TEDMED 2018.

We strongly encourage you to start a Facebook page for your own community as well.

With a page, you’ll be able to recruit attendees, keep your audience up-to-date on event logistics, and continue conversations that began at your TEDMED Live gathering, encouraging further insights and engagement.

Update your page daily with items such as TEDMED curated speaker announcements, photos of the venue, and venue details. Invite your Facebook fans to introduce themselves and why they’re coming to your TEDMED Live gathering.

You can also share TEDMED posts, TEDMED blog posts, content from other organizations who are also a part of the TEDMED Live community, and videos of your favorite TEDMED talks. 

We ask that you include information and a link to http://www.tedmed.com on your page’s “About” section.

Twitter and Instagram
Twitter and Instagram are fantastic ways to recruit attendees for your gathering and to update them on conference details. Help engage followers by creating a separate account and name just for your event. Use #TEDMED, #TEDMED2018, #TEDMEDLive, or your own TEDMED Live name #hashtag to make it easy to search relevant posts. Follow TEDMED on Twitter and Instagram for up-to-date info.

Post often, both from your organization’s account, if possible, and from your event account. Announce TEDMED curated speakers and topics, talk about logistics, and ask questions of other people on Twitter/Instagram using their @handle.

Other Social Media
Consider creating an online home for post-TEDMED Live conversations, such as a Google+ page or LinkedIn group.

BRAND GUIDELINES FOR TEDMEDLive

Creating a Logo  
          

We have a standardized style for all TEDMED Live Streaming logos, so each retains the same look and feel. Below, we've provided templates you can download and customize. Each includes a text field for you to type in your approved name (in Helvetica) so it will appear in the approved position. A .psd file and .eps are provided, and can be customized for your gathering using Photoshop or another Adobe product.   

TEDMEDLive Logo Downloads: Black Background

TEDMEDLive Logo Downloads: White Background 

  • Typeface: Helvetica
  • “TEDMED” in all capital letters
  • Logo: TEDMEDLive 2018, with your Approved Name below and to the right, as above. 
    • When on a black background, your approved name should appear in white font.
    • When on a white background, your approved name should appear in black font.
  • Header: "TEDMEDLive Streaming" as two words
  • Body copy: "TEDMED Live Streaming" (as three words - the 2018 may be ommitted.)
    • "TEDMED Live Streaming" (written as body copy), should appear in the same color as the surrounding body type. 

TEDMED Colors

          

When possible, a spot color should be used for the logo — this is preferable, because this is the best way to reproduce TEDMED red (Pantone 485). If specifying a spot color is not possible, the 4-color process (CMYK) method of printing may be used.

 

Background Colors

          

 

Any use of the TEDMED Live Streaming brand in the public domain must be approved by TEDMED prior to usage i.e. Press releases, social media announcements, etc. 

Use of the TEDMED Live Streaming 2018 logo should only appear in conjunction with the TEDMED Live Streaming 2018 content.
