TEDxMyeongDong event focused on 'Visualize&Socialize' as a theme. As we all know, How to show your ideas are as much important as what you show at TED or TEDx which is limited to 18 minutes. So visualization is a key on that. Also, the meaning of socializing with others is how to tie with others based on common interests. Our plan to socialize was started from the applications from the audience. We analyzed the audience through their Facebook and Twitter. And we calculated how many common interests they have had among the participants. So we could find a link among participants who had common interests. Before our event we sent meal and SMS to let them know who would be good to meet through our analyzation. So we made a face wall based on photos which were from the participants. On the photos we put QRcode included the detail of the each participant. So this event was the best example how we can implement the environment to socialize with participants. In some cases even better than TED because the number of the audience were small.
