6 things you should know before going to TEDxVienna Brave New Space

This year’s TEDxVienna Brave New Space (official hashtag #TEDxVienna) will happen in less than three days.  Around 1000 people will celebrate the discovery of a “Brave New Space” this Saturday in the Volkstheater Wien. The speakers, the program, the performer, the exhibitors, the interactive sessions and YOU, our amazing audience will contribute to the main goal of the conference: We want to discover new paths and unexpected frontiers. We will set aside the answers we think we know and ask the questions we are afraid to ask. Let’s have a look now at what awaits you.

1. International and local speakers

20 international and local speakers will take the TEDxVienna stage once again. They will tackle the most diverse and yet contemporary topics from the sociology and economics of love, digital biology, pornography, leadership to space, entrepreneurship, social activism, self quantification and many more. If you want to get to know the speakers a bit, read our blog posts here, here, here and here.

For those of you who will not be able to join us, we invite you to watch the live-stream. We will announce the URL on the day of the event, so stay tuned on our social media channels: Twitter, Facebook & Instagram.

2. An amazing performance

The Austrian dance team Dance Industry will take us into a fantastic new world with their carefully coordinated electro-luminescent light suit choreography. They apply new technology and carefully timed synchronous moves to reinvent the dance show and create a thrilling experience for live viewers. It will be fantastic!

3. Networking opportunities

The speakers play a significant role in the success of the TEDxVienna conference, but what really creates its spirit and energy are the attendees. Around 1000 people will join us this year so what you should expect are 1000 of the most interesting and curious minds ready to share with you their wonderful stories, plans and dreams. So what better environment for networking than this?

We encourage you to form the craziest and most fruitful synergies. Look for others who share the same color of your badge.  Find out what ideas #worthspreading you might have in common and we’ll help you share them with the entire audience. More info on Saturday!
