CINCINNATI - From intellectual conversation, comes change and progress. TED believes that these “ideas worth spreading” can change lives and communities.
The offspring of the global “TED Talks” is TEDx, a way for groups around the country can organize their own events based around the concept of powerful, motivating and instructional conversations with those who care about their community. TED and TEDx are non-profit organizations.
The organization’s philosophy is a reason why TEDxCincinnati and Insider have teamed up, in what WCPO’s Digital General Manager Dave Peterson calls “a natural fit.”
On Oct. 16, TEDxCincinnati will hold its third annual lecture series at Memorial Hall with WCPO Insider as a partnering sponsor. The theme of this year’s main stage event is "Vibrant Curiosity," which will feature speakers on health innovation, wellness, biotech and “cool” technology.
For a limited time, tickets to the previously sold-out event will be available exclusively through WCPO Insider from Aug. 25 through Sept. 9. WCPO.com will be the only vendor of pre-sale tickets in the Tri-State. CLICK HERE FOR THE DEAL
During this two-week window, those who become annual Insiders will get two tickets to TEDxCincinnati and an invite--with two drink tickets--to an exclusive happy hour event.
The package, a $230 value, is available for $99. If purchased after Sept. 9, TEDxCincinnati tickets will go on sale for $65 each.
In WCPO Insider’s first venture into supporting local programs, Peterson said this opportunity with TEDxCincinnati is “aligned in what we both do.”
“We’re very excited to partner with WCPO Insider,” said Jami Edelheit, TEDxCincinnati executive director. “TEDx and WCPO Insider share the goal of furthering our community conversation and supporting innovation.”
