Here at Village, we’re excited to announce that this year we are the official media partner for TEDxBath and its upcoming event: Inter-Connected 2021.
As media partner, it is our job to handle communications for the event, directing the PR, social media, and external and internal communications. This consists of managing everything from the TEDxBath website and the ticket platform, to managing the team of students assisting with the live comms at the event itself.
Inter-Connected 2021 will consist of two in-person watch parties on consecutive evenings at Bath Spa University’s Locksbrook campus; on 18th & 19th November. In order to comply with Covid regulations, the watch parties will be for select attendees only and will feature streamed pre-recorded talks from speakers - with support from Suited & Booted and InfiLED - live talks from select speakers, and a live Q&A. It will be an opportunity for the diverse audience to directly engage with the speakers and sponsors. All other attendees will be able to watch the event digitally, through an interactive platform, from the comfort of their own homes.
This year, TEDxBath has partnered with Bath Spa University, University of Bath and Bath College to increase the event’s visibility among the student community and younger demographics. All three institutions have committed to working together to support TEDxBath before, during and after Inter-Connected, providing crucial resources that enable the independently organised and not-for-profit TED event to promote ‘ideas worth sharing’. All students will be provided with free access to virtual tickets.
Bobby Marsh, Social Media and PR Account Manager at Village, said: “Being involved with TEDxBath is a really exciting opportunity. As this year’s Comms Lead, I’ve had the pleasure of weaving the story of ‘Inter-Connected’ throughout all the comms, unpicking why and what it means and how the theme is so significant to this specific period of time. Village’s contribution to TEDxBath has allowed the event to come together seamlessly."
TEDxBath Inter-Connected 2021 will be streamed in multiple languages, including: English, Mandarin, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and British Sign.
Tickets are available to purchase here.
