In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. The first TEDxUniversityofNevada was held January 25, 2013 at the Joe Crowley Student Union on the campus of The University of Nevada, Reno. Our speakers and participants shared and discussed ideas worth spreading in the very impressive Student Union Theater. Our second event was held in the same location on January 24, 2014. Our third event was held in the same location on January 23, 2015. Our fourth event was attended by 1200 people at the Pioneer Theater on January 23, 2016. Our fifth event was attended by over 1300 people at Grand Sierra Resort on January 21, 2017.
Our next event will be Saturday, January 27, 2018, at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUniversityofNevada, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUniversityofNevada event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. The founding sponsor of TEDxUniversityofNevada is the Online Executive MBA program in the College of Business, University of Nevada.
