TEDxWellington returns to NZ’s capital


Inspiring live talks from incredible locals, at a top secret location, await those who will be attending the next TEDxWellington event on Saturday 5 March 2016.


TEDxWellington is putting together a unique experience for TED fans in the creative capital once again. The full-day event’s theme is ‘Trust’, with key details only being revealed to ticket-holders on the day.


“We’re taking a creative approach to TEDxWellington this year to make it as special as possible for those attending,“ says TEDxWellington founder and license holder, DK.


“The location, speakers, ticket numbers, and programme are closely guarded secrets until they are revealed on the day. This is a world-first for any TEDx event and we’re very excited to be offering Wellingtonians this unique experience,” he said.


Tickets are available from 9am Friday 5 February 2016 via Eventfinda. Tickets cost $135 and numbers are extremely limited, with a cap of two per person. People hoping to secure a ticket are advised to get in early, with the last event selling out 400 tickets in less than three hours.


This is the fourth TEDxWellington event following three previous sold out events.


Fans can follow TEDxWellington on Twitter, Facebook or sign up for emails on the website for news about tickets and other updates.


TEDxWellington is sponsored by foundation sponsor Optimation, Creative HQ and Hutt City Libraries.
