It’s hard to believe the 2014 TEDxPSU conference is only about five weeks away. Free tickets are now available to reserve online for the annual idea sharing conference, which will be held this year on March 2 at Schwab Auditorium. There are approximately 600 seats available in Schwab, and last year, tickets sold out very quickly. The HUB Auditorium has also been booked as a simulcast room to handle the inevitable overflow crowd.
The first wave of speakers is expected to be announced next week — there is usually about 16 in all from inside the Penn State community and beyond. The full speaker list will be revealed on February 10. The theme “Go Further” was unveiled in November for the fourth ever TEDxPSU.
“TED gives us ideas worth spreading, but it’s up to us to go further and spread the ideas,” said Lauren Matakas, Director of Community Relations.
For those unfamiliar with the event, TEDxPSU is an annual conference that brings together innovative and thought-provoking individuals from the Penn State community and beyond to share ideas worth spreading. Using a combination of live talks and pre-recorded videos, the goal of TEDxPSU is to inspire audience members to challenge preconceived notions, explore emerging trends, and contribute to an ongoing dialogue about the future.
