TEDxMonteCarlo was the star at this week’s networking event hosted by MonacoUSA at Amber Summer.
Guests queued up to take selfies in front of a TEDx poster in hopes of winning a free ticket to the November 11 event, which last year sold out quickly.
Tickets for TEDxMonteCarlo 2017 went on sale last week and the TEDx team is offering an “early bird” special until September 15 (€79 or €49 for students).
This year’s theme has a James Bond-spin “License to Know”. Nazanine Matin, TEDxMonteCarlo founder, is keeping the names of her 17 speakers close to the vest but she has revealed that there are special guests from the US, Japan and Europe, including one famous Monegasque and one 10-year-old girl.
MonacoUSA Director Annette Anderson said the TEDx experience “will make you laugh and make you cry but, most importantly, it will make you think”.
TEDx – talks about Technology, Entertainment and Design – is a global phenomenon where local audiences can hear international speakers give brief but powerful talks on various themes.
