Must-read tips from your friendly TEDxGuelphU team

  • The dress code for the day will be business casual.
  • Save a cup and bring a reusable water bottle! 
  • Don't forget a pen and note pad so you can take notes and write down your questions during the talks. This will come in handy during our Q/A with the speakers! 
  • Lakeside Hope House has seating that is made of fairly hard wood. If you think you're going to be uncomfortable, bring a cushion or let us know beforehand and we can provide one for you. 
  • Don't forget to tweet during the event using the hashtags #TEDxGuelphU and #BuildingBridges
  • Coat check will be provided free of charge. 


Getting to Lakeside Hope House

 Lakeside Hope House is a 5 minute walk from Guelph Central Station (the Downtown bus loop). If you have a car, we suggest that you park at the University of Guelph (free on Saturdays), and take any of the Downtown buses to Guelph Central Station including the 5 Downtown, 3A or 2B. Free parking in the Downtown area for the event will unfortunately not be provided. Information about parking Downtown Guelph can be found here and a map of the available paid parking lots can be found here. Please note: Street parking is only available in increments of 2 hours, so we do not recommend that you park on the street.



Alright folks, that's all we've got!

We're looking forward to meeting you on February 7th.
