This year’s event is scheduled to take place from 9 am to 4 pm Friday, October 20, at the Victoria Theatre, 138 N. Main St. in downtown Dayton. Following four consecutive sell-out events, the theme chosen to challenge featured speakers and the audience in the program’s fifth year is “CURRENT.”
“We are very honored and humbled by the support of the community for TEDxDayton,” said TEDxDayton co-chair Diane Farrell. “Hundreds of volunteer hours go into making TEDxDayton the premier thought-inspiring event in the Dayton region. Each year we work hard to ensure that our guests are engaged, challenged and inspired by what they see on stage.”
“We are extremely proud of the lineup of speakers this year, as well as the continued support by our sponsoring partners,” said Ron Rollins, TEDxDayton co-chair. “We are grateful for all of the hard work and thought the committee has put into this and can’t wait to experience TEDxDayton on October 20.”
Speaker auditions have concluded; the lineup will be announced at the end of the summer.
Four ticket levels are available for this year’s event: Student, General Admission, Patron, and Legacy Patron. All tickets will include morning coffee, lunch and an afternoon treat. Patron tickets allow individuals to sponsor the event through a $50 donation.
