On Saturday, September 6, the TEDxABQ conference, now in its fifth year, will return to UNM’s Popejoy Hall to inspire 2,000 TEDxABQ fans with innovative, dynamic, homegrown ideas. The event places New Mexico on the global stage and effects positive change by altering the way we think about our state locally, and by fostering a culture of entrepreneurship, where big ideas are embraced and then powered by passionate people like you, who give their time and energy to make them happen.

TEDxABQ, the independently organized, TED licensed conference has showcased New Mexico’s biggest ideas and most inspiring thinkers to sold-out audiences. Every year, a staff of 120+ passionate volunteers makes this event a reality. TEDxABQ 2014 highlights 18 remarkable ideas from NM’s most passionate artists, thinkers, innovators, leaders, and scientists among others. TEDxABQ talks from the 2013, event have been viewed over 700,000 times in locations across the globe.

General admission includes an intricately curated full-day stage program featuring TED-style short talks, video interludes and other surprises. Throughout the day there are conversation breaks over coffee and pastries and a lunch experience provided by Flying Star, where together with speakers, attendees will delve into the ideas introduced on stage. Conversations and opportunities to connect with speakers, organizers and fellow attendees will continue in a fun and relaxed atmosphere at the after-party.
