It’s time for TEDxPhoenix 2010!

October 18, 2010

This year’s event is building off the theme for TED2010 – “What the World Needs Now” – and what we feel the world and Phoenix needs now are more Optimists & Catalysts. That’s why this year, we’re bringing you a full day of thought provoking talks by some of the Valley’s most inspirational and innovative thinkers and doers — individuals who have spoken at PopTech, survived civil war, made the list of the Valley’s most intriguing individuals, championed local movements, represented the Navajo Nation, made regular appearances on The Science Channel, have spoken at the Googleplex, and authored books on science, entrepreneurship, and design.

For a full list of TEDxPhoenix 2010 speakers, please visit our speaker page:

In addition to witnessing these great talks, attendees will also be treated to the most TED-like event that Arizona has witnessed thus far. We’ve been working around the clock to ensure that attendees get to experience the electric atmosphere of TED from the TED-like badges all the way down to the free coffee, snacks, drinks, and gift bags. In addition, attendees will get to enjoy a free catered lunch in the Civic Space Park.

All of this is not being done to simply pamper attendees, but instead is being done to promote collaboration and the exchange of ideas as we want this to be an event focused on ideas worth sharing, spreading, AND doing!

Tickets for the event run $50 and are first come, first served so once they run out, they’re gone! In addition, all proceeds go toward paying for our event costs as TEDxPhoenix is a not-for-profit event run by unpaid volunteers. If $50 seems high, consider that it’s less than 1% of the cost of the TED Conference and less than half the cost of most local conferences.

We hope you will join us for TEDxPhoenix 2010 — if you’ve already bought a ticket, then please let us know you’re coming via our event’s wall — and if you’re on the fence, please take a chance on an event that is quickly becoming part of a global revolution in education as well as becoming a global laboratory for the spreading of ideas.

Sincerely,
Tomas Carrillo
TEDxPhoenix Curator
