Do you have an idea worth spreading? Our 2nd TEDxUtica event will take place on November 7, 2014 in Utica, NY. Before you say “yes”, know that this is not your usual conference. We’re looking for WOW! Our speaker roster will balance academics, artists, community leaders, changemakers and those with amazing stories and lessons to share. In the Spirit of TED, each speaker will be given a maximum of 13 minutes to share their idea.

Before you submit your talk for review, please read our TEDxUtica Speakers Packet and the TED Speakers Guide. We also recommend watching a few TED talks to get a feel for the format. Note that the selection committee may ask you to present further to us before your talk is accepted. By submitting your idea, you’re also committing to working with the TEDxUtica team to make your talk as powerful as it can be. We’ll offer constructive feedback as you hone your talk in the weeks and months leading up to TEDxUtica. All applications MUST be submitted by May 31, 2014!

SPEAKER APPLICATIONS FOR 2014 ARE NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUBMISSIONS!
