2015 trust image

ADDENDUM: Date has now been changed to 5th March 2016.

TEDxWellington is back!

We are looking for speakers/performers for our Saturday 21 November 2015 event (see below).

The 2015 theme is trust and it will be an experience that starts with anticipation as many of the event details will be kept a secret, including:

  • location
  • speakers / performers
  • exact number of tickets
  • programme for the day
  • breakout session details

All three previous TEDx events have sold out and have been highly successful in delivering an ever increasing quality experience. A legacy that lays the foundations for this year’s experimental approach and pushes the boundaries of the traditional TEDx format.

Our key goal for this year’s event is to craft deeper participation between the delegates and the ideas worth spreading from the speakers / performers during the day, and then beyond into the wider community of the Wellington region, New Zealand and the world.

The TEDxWellington team is collaborating with an amazing venue to put together a unique experience for TEDx fans in the creative capital once again.

Our approach of keeping many of the key details a secret is a first for any TEDx in the world and will surprise and delight everyone who attends.

UPDATE (27.5.15): Here’s some stats from the first 24hours after our announcement:
