After a hugely successful first edition, TEDxMonteCarlo is coming back to Grimaldi Forum this fall. And the one-day Monte Carlo conference is giving the community a chance to win a free ticket to the November 11 event by taking part in a social media selfie campaign.
MonacoUSA Director Annette Anderson likes the idea so much she’s setting up a “selfie” corner at the Association’s networking event on Tuesday, August 22, at Amber Summer. “The TEDxMonteCarlo team will be special guests at our annual beach party,” she said, “and they have generously agreed to donate entrance tickets for a free tombola during the evening, as well as for the best selfie taken that night.”
The MonacoUSA networking begins at 7 pm and until 9 pm, Amber Summer will offer attendees a special 50 percent discount on wine by the glass. Entrance is free and all nationalities are welcome.
Members of the general public can also take selfies in front of the many TEDx posters seen around Monaco and post on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtags #SnapASelfieTEDxMonteCarlo #LicenseToKnow and #TEDxMonteCarlo.
This year’s TEDxMonteCarlo theme “License To Know” – covering the key topics of Safety, Security, Transparency and Entrepreneurship – will be addressed by more than 16 speakers, both local and international, from innovators to chess players, and from entrepreneurs to TV doctors.
How far has AI progressed and where is it going? How can we live in a safe and secure world and what are the tools available to us? Is cybersecurity really “safe”? How do we effectively use social media without jeopardizing our privacy and safety? Can anyone be an entrepreneur or make a difference? The answers to these questions will be revealed November 11.
Tickets – €88 or for students, €50 – go on sale later this month. Or post your best selfie to win a ticket. Either way, it’s an event you won’t want to miss.
