We are pleased that so many people were interested in getting tickets. We expected the demand to well exceed the supply, but not quite like this. We hope you stick with us as we grow as a program…as always, we will actively seek to improve our processes for next year. We truly hope you stay tuned for our event videos, and volunteer at the event if you are able to do so. We thank you all again for the patience.
Welcome to the TEDxUSU 2014: Friction!
After a successful sophomore event, we have worked tirelessly to improve our audience experience in the biggest, best ways possible moving into our third year. TEDxUSU has exploded to include 19 presentations, performances and recordings packed into one half-day conference, representing the most thought-provoking content the TEDxUSU team could curate that showcases our commitment to “ideas worth spreading.” Tickets for TEDxUSU 2014 will be $20 for the general public and $15 for current USU students, and will go on sale Oct. 15.
This year’s program is a half-day conference divided into three sessions. The first and third session will be headlined by Olympic silver medalist Noelle Pikus Pace and award-winning author Orson Scott Card, and will feature talks given by Utah State faculty and students.
New this year is an interactive second session where attendees will mingle with TEDxUSU speakers, network with fellow audience members, view innovative exhibits and presentations, and help create artistic compositions. Hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.
