TEDxSanDiego 2016

2016 represents our seventh annual event, so please mark your calendars for October 22nd, when TEDxSanDiego returns to Copley Symphony Hall.

We will feature 12 dynamic speakers and 3 stunning performances during the day and will once again block off B Street in front of Symphony Towers to create Innovation Alley, a special venue that will host 20 of San Diego’s most innovative startup companies and highlight our local entrepreneurs.

This year’s theme, The Age of Magic, refers to the many aspects of life that have the ability to fill us with a sense of awe and wonder. We will explore the future of personalized genomics, highlight the impacts of innovation without borders, reveal the power of art to make peace, expose the deep mysteries of the microbiome, understand how the brain sees, design our future with the future of design, and redefine community redevelopment.

Registration Opens on July 6th!

What Attendees Say About Us

It was an amazing and inspiration day. The entertainment components especially meant a great day to me. I’ve been telling everyone that they need to invest in themselves and go next year.

I think the exploration and presentment of new and innovative ideas fosters discussion, opens perspective, and creates an opportunity for meaningful dialog. Well structured, well presented, and thoroughly entertaining, I would confidently encourage friends and colleagues to attend.

Eye opening, Mind refreshing, opportunity driven for positive thinking and meaningful action for Change in the World, this being on a personal level and a translation in a context of wider impact.

TEDxSanDiego is a catalyst for spreading ideas that change our world
