If you’ve been to one or all 10 previous TEDxToronto conferences, you probably have your own list of reasons for what made the day so memorable. This year’s conference, happening on October 26th at Evergreen Brick Works, will be no exception.
1/ You’ll be inspired (and learn something new)
Over the past several weeks, each of our 12 speakers have been hard at work getting their unique idea ready for the big stage. With speakers from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds—from cutting edge AI and the business of sport to new forms of dance and climate change innovation, and everything in between—there will be something for everyone.
2/ It’s a chance to connect with a community of 1000+ inquisitive people
You’ll be able to spend all day with thought-leaders and change-makers from across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area—people as passionate about sharing big ideas as you are.
3/ It’s our first year on a Saturday
Don’t worry about taking a day off work! Our first event on a Saturday means you don’t have to worry about what you’re missing at the office. Just relax, sit back, and be present for an amazing day.
4/ The talks will stretch your mind
We’ve curated speakers that will be presenting ground-breaking ideas, and challenging convention, from fashion to the environment, and everything in between. They will change the way you think, but there’s one catch: you’ll need to keep an open mind!
5/ The action takes place in a jaw-dropping setting
Evergreen Brick Works, once an industrial site and quarry that produced the building blocks of some of Toronto’s most famous landmarks (Massey Hall, Casa Loma), is now a popular urban park and cultural centre focused on the environment.
6/ Delicious food and drink
Toronto’s top chefs will keep you fed and hydrated all day. Breakfast and lunch are included with the price of admission. So are drinks and canapes at the after-party, where you can share your favourite moment of the day with a fellow delegate or two.
7/ Cool activations
We can’t tell you about everything just yet, but a few of our partners have some exciting plans when it comes to providing an interactive experience.
