Why Salons?

TEDxZumbroRiver organizers have spent the off season going to TEDx “School,” talking with other TEDx Organizers and attending other TEDx events throughout the country. Because of the thirst for TEDx content in this area, TEDxZumbroRiver will be bringing three TEDx Salons to SEMN for 2018. Salons will take the place of the traditional single large event in 2018, while 2019 will see the return of one large event.

Salons are specialty TEDx events that require a license from TED.

Here’s what attendees experience at these highly popular TEDx Salons:

  • Format: The TEDxZumbroRiver team is planning unique and engaging formats to enhance the experience in a manner we’ve never before experienced.

  • Lively Discussions: A critical element of salons is lively discussions, allowing attendees to actively participate in the event.

  • Size: With smaller audiences than a standard TEDx event, salons bring attendees together in more intimate spaces, providing more chances to get to know and exchange ideas.

Only 100 tickets are available - purchase yours today!
