In early 2015, TEDxGatewayArch will host the flagship event Confluence II at the Sheldon Concert Hall. Attendees will enjoy a full day of local speakers, giving their TED Talk on a variety of topics, illustrating how our city is filled with innovators and thought leaders.
Throughout the day of live presentations and TEDTalks videos, you will have breaks to enjoy the many exhibitors and to network with fellow TED enthusiasts. In addition to the theater seating, the Confluence venue will have large simulcast areas with relaxed seating and easy access to refreshments. Immediately following the presentations, you’re invited to enjoy the entertainment at the happy hour where you can meet and mingle with the speakers and the volunteer team.
The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
Tickets for Confluence II will go on sale in January so please check back for program details.
TEDxGatewayArch is a nonprofit regional extension of TED, a global movement that empowers individuals to share their work and ideas in the fields of Technology, Entertainment and Design.
Our mission is to use the TED format to build a connected and diverse group of learners and change-agents in the St. Louis region, motivated to find new ways to impact lives and prosper as a community. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and the world as a whole. Through this site, we hope to build a clearing house of free knowledge from the region’s most inspired thinkers – and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TEDx events all year long. Please let us hear from you as you join us on the path of seeking ideas worth sharing!
