TEDx PDX Preview

Year 3 of TEDx Portland starts on Monday.

Well, ticket sales open Monday, you still have a month to look forward to this lineup, a full day of amazing speakers, an art show, and a surprise event before hand that will excite any TED fan. Yeah, TEDx is a franchise. But it’s our franchise. Our flavor, under the global TED umbrella, it’s Portland’s very own in a rad series of what is turning out to be fertile grounds for a short-list of inspiration-heavy conferences. This one is just, you know, globally recognized. That’s all.

And guess what. This lady is talking:

Yeah. I TOLD YOU. But also check out the lineup, if you don’t know who they are and want their bio’s, vist tedxportland.com. I love the decision to make these humans’ faces front-and-center.
So beautiful.

So, tickets last year sold out in 2 hours. Monday is your window, if you want to be a part of this, sit on your browser like you’re looking for an apartment on Alberta Street. Refresh, refresh, refresh. If you can’t make it or time slips through your hands, you can count on FORTPORT to cover as much of the TEDx event day as possible. And that starts right now with the following info.
