In 2010, we organized the first TEDxRedmond conference to focus on “Power to the Students,” highlighting the unique inspiration, activism, and drive of young people—both on-stage and in the audience. That first year, we received tremendous media coverage, corporate support, and over 700 attendees from all over the Pacific Northwest. High school students and children as young as seven sat rapt in the audience, learning from their peers and contributing to the discussion around youth voice and accomplishment.

In 2011, we continued the success we saw in 2010 with the “Spark in All of Us”-themed conference. Almost 900 people registered for the event, breaking our previous year’s already unimaginable scale. Speakers making an impact on both global and local stages shared their stories; ultimately, our work created an opportunity for a diverse group of young adults to share and inspire.

In 2012, we reached a new level in our third TEDxRedmond event, which had the theme “Your Place in the Puzzle.” With a new room for the conference, a new variety of speakers, and over 1000 people signed up for the event, as a whole we were about to teach, discover, entertain, motivate and most of all, learn. Through this event, we continued to pursue the notion that the spirit of TEDxRedmond doesn’t stop after the event. There is always room to explore and inspire oneself and others.

In 2013, we decided to continue TEDxRedmond for a fourth year, pushing ourselves to make it the most inspiring and successful event yet. TEDxRedmond returned to the Microsoft Conference Center on Saturday, September 28, 2013. This year, the event will take place at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA.
