TEDxDetroit, an annual gathering of thought leaders, entrepreneurs, educators, scientists, artists, and more, is returning in person, Nov. 10, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
According to the TEDxDetroit website, the conference is designed to “celebrate creativity while fostering new connections, collaborations, and opportunities.”
Those interested in attending can join TEDxDetroit in three ways this year: live at the Icon Detroit Auditorium, live at Icon Detroit (but not in the auditorium), and remotely. Those who want to attend in person can purchase tickets for Live In-Theatre & TEDxLabs for $75 and Live Viewing Party & TEDxLabs for $25 here. Remote streaming is free. Vaccinations and masks are strongly encouraged for in-person attendees.
TEDxDetroit recommends individuals who want to attend the event live purchase their tickets as soon as possible. The event is limited to 330 people in the auditorium —a significant decrease from their normal thousands of attendees.
“We really think it’s important to get people back together in-person again,” Terry Bean, TEDxDetroit executive producer and vice president of sales at PKIG, said in a news release. “Face-to-face networking will always beat pixel-to-pixel. The key is to do it safely and responsibly — and we’re building that into this year’s venue and event.”
