TEDxGreensboro 2018

Our signature program is a full day event that includes ten speakers, entertainment, and selected TED videos.

Our sixth TEDxGreensboro program is March 22, 2018 at Triad Stage in downtown Greensboro.  These programs have been sold out with about 300 participants. Additionally we webstream the program to Triad senior living centers, high schools, and colleges.

TED Webcasts

We can bring national and global TED conferences to Greensboro through the web. Local participants can see TED speakers as they appear and these presentations later become the famous “TED Talks.” Our schedule this year includes TEDWomen on Nov. 3, broadcast from New Orleans and TED2018 from Vancouver on April 14, 2018. Our local attendance ranges from 100-200 people.

TEDxGreensboro Salons

TEDxGreensboro Salons are smaller events that engage the audience in conversation around a TED Talk on a specific topic. The format includes viewing a provocative TED Talk followed by a facilitated discussion. Occasionally we have a local speaker but the goal is for audience members to share their knowledge and opinions with one another.

We are planning three salon events this year; the average attendance at each is 80.
