The 2014 Toastmasters International Convention is being held this week in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, starting on Thursday (Wednesday evening in Seattle). Unfortunately, Malaysia is not exactly a short drive or flight from Seattle. If you are disappointed at not being able to attend the ceremonies, learning sessions, and speech contest, worry no more! Toastmasters is offering a chance to watch the proceedings from the comfort of your own computer. Toastmasters On Demand is a service where you can pay a fee to follow the events. There are two options: you can stream the events live or watch them on-demand after the events are over. If you want to stream the events, keep in mind that Malaysia time is 15 hours ahead of Seattle. When the International Speech Contest begins at 9:00 am Saturday morning in Kuala Lumpur, it will be 6 pm Friday evening in Seattle. For the on-demand subscription, it appears that you can watch the videos an unlimited number of times. You also have access to videos of previous conventions.

Streaming the entire convention is $99. You can stream just the speech contest for only $29. The on-demand (A la Carte) content will be available starting August 25. Note that if you want to watch the opening ceremonies and similar events, those are only available via the full convention streaming package. These are the costs for the on-demand options.

  • Education Session 1-5 – $9.99/each
  • Semi-Finals 1-9 – $9.99/each
  • World Championship (Streaming) – $29.99
  • World Championship (DVD) – $29.99
  • World Championship Bundle (Streaming & DVD) – $39.99
