Fans of TEDtalks will be happy to know that a local TEDx is on the boards for December, and tickets are now on sale. Angelenos will be captivated by thought leaders and performers such as Executive Chairman of the X Prize Foundation Peter Diamandis, classical pianist and composer Tara Kamangar, accomplished actor Harry Hamlin and President of Harvey Mudd College Maria Klawe, among others at the upcoming TEDxLA conference, an independently organized event licensed by TED. In addition to the first set of headlining speakers being announced, tickets are now on sale to the general public for the December 3rd event taking place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, CA.
TEDxLA will draw in over 3,000 thoughtful individuals from all walks of life to hear speakers and performers cover topics as varied as space travel, collaborative art, food fairness, education revolution, gender equality, robotics, healthy living, artificial intelligence, augmented reality and more. With the theme of TEDxLA being “Imagine,” the talks and performances at the conference will encourage attendees to imagine a better future where these trailblazing ideas are integrated and put into action. To spark excitement for the December conference and start igniting action for groundbreaking ideas, city-wide experiments will be happening across Los Angeles communities leading up the TEDxLA conference where the results from the volunteer city-wide activities will be shared.
“As Los Angeles is a hub for innovation, design, creativity and entrepreneurship, we are thrilled to bring together speakers, performers, Angelenos, and many visitors coming to the Dolby Theatre to spark action in the local and global community,” said TEDxLA Curator Amir Banifatemi. “This first set of speakers is just a preview of what is to come for this thought-provoking conference and we look forward to sharing more exciting news in the next few months.”
Best seats are now available on Ticketmaster for $250. Additional speakers will be announced in the weeks leading to the event. For more information on TEDxLA tickets, city-wide experiments, or general event questions, please visit www.tedx.la.
