TEDxOshkosh registration opens for Nov 10 session


Registration for the third annual TEDxOshkosh event is now open. The event will take place on Saturday November 10th, 2018 at The Grand Oshkosh from 8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. for a day with 15 insightful speakers and dialogue around the theme Dialed-In.

TEDxOshkosh brings the spirit of TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading to local communities around the globe. Since 2016, local organizers have brought a diverse lineup of speakers and topics to the TEDxOshkosh stage. TEDxOshkosh was organized to discover ideas and spark conversations in the Oshkosh community – and beyond, through the magic of Internet video. Today the TEDxOshkosh speaker videos have been viewed more than 120,000 times on YouTube.

Online registration and speaker information can be found at www.TEDxOshkosh.com.

Seating Options

Registration options for adults include VIP (in The Grand’s roomy “Suite Seats”) for $99, Main Floor seats for $89, and Balcony for $69. All registrations include an unreserved seat for the entire day at The Grand, catered lunch, pre-event snacks and beverages, snacks and beverages at mid-morning and mid-afternoon breaks, and a swag bag of TEDx goodies. Some registration packages include an opportunity to attend a post-event reception with the speakers.

Special Discount for Students

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor with a deep commitment to youth and education, a deeply discounted block of seats have been set aside on the main floor for students. Seats at this price are limited, and student identification will be needed at admission. In order to let students settle-in to the beginning of the new school year, registration for students will open on September 10th. Student seats are priced at $25 from September 10th – September 30th and $44.50 after Sept 30.

“We invite you to join us at the Grand Opera House to listen to people who have great ideas worth spreading, and engage with our community in conversation. This is an event you don’t want to miss,” said Craig Burnett, TEDxOshkosh co-organizer.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers.

TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Monica Lewinsky, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala,Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.

TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; the annual million-dollar TED Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a “wish,” or idea, to create change in the world; TEDx, which provides licenses to  thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
