Upcoming Events

Saturday February 21st 9:30-4:30 @ The Sheldon Concert Hall


Attend our second “big” day of learning and listening to St. Louis visionaries. Business and community leaders will mingle and exchange ideas for integrating disciplines. What might a manager learn from an artist? What could a scientist learn from a musician? The dialog is unlimited and rich! Technology, Entertainment, Design and progressive thinking abound.

Reserve your Saturday for the upcoming flagship event, Confluence II. Mingle with thought leaders, innovators and community visionaries at our second annual “happening.” Last year’s attendees still chatter about the broad array of presentations, which, of course, is what TEDx events are all about.

Doors open for registration at 9:30 a.m. The packed agenda runs through to 4:30 p.m. Your ticket covers presentations, food, beverage, music and access to many exhibitors. And, of course, you’ll also have lots of opportunity to network and mingle with the 750 other attendees.  There will also be an after party in the Sheldon ballroom.

Perhaps you feel one day just isn’t enough for you? Good news we have a VIP speaker reception planned for the Friday Feb. 20th 5:30 PM
