Become a Speaker

Once a year TEDxGatewayArch holds an Open Audition platform for speakers, giving individuals a chance to share their one great idea.

We will look for innovators and trailblazers, especially in the fields of technology, entertainment and design.  We seek speakers who are passionate, engaging and have the ability to tell a compelling story.  Speakers must also have an intrinsic connection to St. Louis. 



Stay up to date. Re-ignite your passions, meet new connections for collaboration, bring out your awesome! Sign up for our newsletter to get an inside scoop about upcoming events, learn more about our fantastic speakers, and be inspired! 


Young Innovators Program

TEDxGatewayArch gives students and young people ages 16-20 the opportunity to attend our event, free of charge. Apply to become one of our young innovators.


Be An Exhibitor

Our events entertain & engage attendees even outside of the TEDx talks in the theater. TEDxGatewayArch curates an exhibitor lounge or interactive exhibit area, showcasing local organizations & individuals doing cool work in St. Louis. For a small both fee, exhibitors have a captive audience of the most curious and civic-minded thought-leaders in the region.
