About this event

We are planning a TEDxCrocetta conference in October with the theme "Thinking outside the box" that will be able to host a maximum of 100 people. In order to grow our community and to enhance even more the opportunity to share ideas, we will have 3 TEDxCrocettaSalon events (in June, July and September) which are more focused on interaction and discussion. At these TEDxCrocettaSalon events, we will watch TEDTalks, have discussions, and host a few live speakers.
