TEDxPeachtree is Friday, November 2, and it’s coming to Buckhead! The exquisitely restored Buckhead Theatre serves as the backdrop for TEDxPeachtree 2012. Talks on neuroscience, bionics and ethnography are all part of the speaker mashup this year. And in TEDxPeachtree fashion, they will use the conference theme, Transcend, as inspiration.

Take Your Tastebuds on a Culinary Journey

As if 12 innovative, transcendent talks weren’t enough, TEDxPeachtree 2012 also is excited to bring tasty bites and sips to this year’s event courtesy of Frozen Pints Craft Beer Ice Cream and Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters.

Frozen Pints: The Atlanta-based Frozen Pints crew found inspiration following a party snafu involving some spilt beer in an ice cream maker – combine the finest craft beers and local ingredients to put a whole new spin on a classic frozen treat. They’ll bring their unique flavor profiles and a lot of love for craft beer and ice cream to TEDxPeachtree 2012 with some fantastically fun (and tasty) fare with Frozen Pints tastings.

Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters: Since 1986, Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters has been handcrafting the finest coffees from around the globe, and we thought their Certified Organic, Fair Trade Certified and Bird-Friendly, Shade Grown java would be a perfect fit at TEDxPeachtree 2012. These coffee aficionados are bringing their fresh beans and limited edition cups o’ joe to The Buckhead Theatre for a caffeine-fueled pick me up.

Live Podcast Interviews

Business Radio X: For the second year, Atlanta Business RadioX will be conducting live radio interviews of attendees and speakers during the breaks to bring you a slice of the conversations that will be taking place at the conference!

We’ll publish the link to the online podcast on the homepage of this web site on the day of the conference.

Get Captured by VIP Photog F22 Studio

Oh snap! This year, Cara Pastore and her team from F22 Studio will be on hand to snap photos of TEDxPeachtree 2012 attendees. Be sure to smile and say cheese because this Atlanta-based photographer and artist has more than a decade of experience shooting for high profile clients like the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Sheikh of Bahrain Economic Development Delegation, W Hotels, Atlantic Records and VIBE Magazine.
