TEDxWellingtonSalon #3 | Event Review

TEDxWellington Salon #3

The third TEDxWellington Salon event has been and gone and we want to thank you all for coming on this journey with us (check out all the images from the evening here).

These Salon events have kept Wellingtonians engaged and connected over the last 12 months plus provide the perfect place to watch TED talks, hear previous speakers and discuss ideas with interested and interesting people. Consider the next TEDxWellingtonSalon event you attend an ‘ideas hub’—somewhere you not only take away some great ideas and insights, but where you also share your ideas.

“…good ideas often come from a collision of ideas so that they form something bigger than themselves.”
Steve Johnson (see below)

Now, at this third Salon event we announced something awesome!
TEDxWellington 2016 tickets will go on sale to the general public one month out from the event. That means you will be able to purchase tickets Friday 5 February 2016.

Want to know something even cooler?
We will be making a batch of tickets to the 2016 TEDxWellington event available to those who have attended one of the three Salon events. What this means is that Salon attendees will have exclusive access to a batch (exact numbers to be announced at a later date) of tickets to purchase before the general public as way of a thank you for supporting these events.

What else happened at this third Salon event?
Not only did we announce details of the main TEDxWellington event, we also had updates from previous speakers: Ben Forman, Alex Hannant and Dave Moskovitz. And how could we forget watching these two great talks:

As ever, these events are a collaboration with great partners / souls: Wellington
City Council,
The Amazing Travelling Photobooth, Eyeball Kicks, Flight Coffee, GoodBuzz Kombucha, WorkerBe, Uber and Tommy Millions.
