- Saturday, April 28th, 2018
TEDxWilmington is bringing an all-new type of event to Wilmington, Delaware with TEDxWilmingtonLive: Age of Amazement, on Saturday, April 28, 2018.
The concept behind TEDxWilmingtonLive is to showcase a wide variety of live speakers with the addition of an entire session of brand new TED Talks streamed directly from TED2018 in Vancouver. TED2018, which is completely sold out, happens only once a year with ticket prices starting at $10,000 per ticket.
TEDxWilmington is pleased to share an entire session from TED2018 at this TEDxWilmingtonLive event.
There will be three 90-minute sessions, which will include 24 speakers onstage giving TEDx talks, and one 90-minute session of TED Talk videos streamed from TED2018 in Vancouver.
