TEDxZurichSalon Launches Tonight

TEDxZurich is launching TEDxZurichSalon events. The Salons complement the main event by bringing the community together more frequently and providing opportunities for conversation and heightened interaction between speaker and audience. Think of it as a dinner party with the smartest people you know.

Hosted at the Impact hub, our Community Partner, it will give a glimpse into creative spaces in Zurich, their obstacles and potential. In TEDx tradition it will start with ideas worth spreading and in Salon fashion then move into small discussion rounds, focusing on a concrete question.

We are overwhelmed by the interest we have gotten for our first TEDxZurichSalon and unfortunately had to close registrations ahead of time because we had four times more registrations than the attendees we can accommodate at the event. We will review all the applications and you will get an email from us with updates.

We plan to organize bigger events as part of the TEDxZurichSalon series next year and hope to be able to host those that will miss out on “Innovation and Creativity” on September 28.
