7th Annual TEDxWilmington Conference: NOW WHAT?
- Thursday, September 27th, 2018
The 7th Annual TEDxWilmington Conference is our 31st TEDxWilmington event held in total since TED granted the license to Ajit Mathew George in 2011.
The theme for 2018 is “NOW WHAT?”
We live in an age of information with a seemingly endless flow of ideas, and yet we have almost no idea what to do with them most of the time. With so many amazing resources at our fingertips, we pose the important question of what to do with it all. What is the next step in the right direction? NOW WHAT?
This year’s annual conference will showcase 30 speakers and performers (plus a horse!) from around the world who will come to Wilmington to share their Ideas Worth Spreading in a TEDx talk. These speakers were selected from a list of 234 applicants from 33 States, the District of Columbia and 8 countries. In September, they will take to the red carpet stage and share some of the freshest and most fascinating concepts and how we can all put them into action. Come find out how you can put Ideas into Action.
A list of speakers and their bios are available below. If you have any additional questions please email Organizer, Ajit George (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Assistant Producer, Kelsey Guinnup (email@example.com) for more information.
Where: Figure 8 Barn, Bellevue State Park, 800 Carr Rd., Wilmington, DE, 19809

This year we are bringing the TEDxWilmington Annual Conference to an all new location!
The Figure 8 Barn in Bellevue State Park is a century old space inside of a Delaware State Park. Originally intended for horse training and shows, The Figure 8 Barn is now an ideal venue for even the largest of events. With its 30,000 square foot open floor plan and the ability to accommodate more than 3,000 guests, it includes two large performance areas with a connecting walkway. One side will include theater seating and a stage for our marvelous speakers, and the other will be open with picnic tables for eating lunch and mingling.
Speaking of lunch, the price of admission will include lunch from your choice of two different, amazing, local food trucks with options for any dietary needs:
– The Roaming Raven, owned by Ashby Hospitality Group of Deer Park Tavern and 8th & Union fame
– Zaikka on Wheels, a locally sourced, Indian grill out of Newark, DE.
