TED 2016 Opening Night Live

For the first time you can watch the opening session of the legendary TED Conference on the big screen! On February 15 the general public will have the previously unthinkable opportunity to experience the “opening night” of TED’s legendary annual conference, and its equally legendary audience. Buy your tickets to watch TED 2016 Opening Night Live at Horton Plaza 8.

Hosted by TED’s curator Chris Anderson, the approximately 90-minute theatrical screening of this event will debut the first evening of TED2016: Dream (taking place in Vancouver, Canada from February 15-22), featuring world-renowned thinkers, artists and storytellers who will share their “ideas worth spreading” about the greatest dreams we are capable of dreaming. What emerges is a spirit of wonder and optimism that represents the world at its best.

What Attendees Say About TEDxSanDiego

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.
