TEDxSanAntonio Minds Wide Open 2013 speakers have been selected. See the 2013 speaker list.
For more information on speakers or to schedule interviews, contact Deborah Martin at (210) 216-6493.
Our speaker selection and curation committee sent emails to all speaker applicants (and check and double-checked) but we did hear from some of you who did not receive the notification. Please accept our apologies if this happened to you!
The committee’s task was especially difficult this year – not just due to the sheer number of applications, but the amazing variety and quality of the proposed talks made for many passionate discussions. Each year, the committee has selected speakers who had applied in previous years but didn’t fit the format, theme or rhythm. So don’t give up! And the stage is by NO means the only place to share your ideas. Please attend our TEDxSanAntonio events to share your ideas with others in the community. This community is comprised of people who love discussing ideas and who enjoy fresh perspectives.
What Are the Opportunities to Hear These Speakers?
It has been a record-breaking year for the TEDxSanAntonio community, with more applications for speakers and attendee invitations than ever before. As a result, we already have a waiting list going for the main event on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at Rackspace Global Headquarters.
If you already requested an invitation, invitations will be sent through EventBrite on or before September 16. So hang tight and continue to save the date, please!
If you want to attend the event in person and you have not yet requested an invitation, please request an invitation to be added to the waiting list. Not everyone who gets an invitation actually buys their ticket; plans change. We will release tickets to the waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis until all seats are filled.
If you’re not sure of your plans or can’t afford the $65 ticket, we have you covered. Sponsors are planning at least two official Watch Parties that will be free to attend. As your schedule permits, you will have the opportunity to gather with others in the TEDxSanAntonio community to watch and discuss the talks — along with hundreds (maybe thousands!) of people worldwide watching the livestream of the event.
The event will be livestreamed via web so you can watch it as it happens with any connected device (phone, tablet, laptop or desktop).
The talks will be recorded and posted on the TEDxTalks YouTube channel. Our previous TEDxSanAntonio talks are all there, along with video from the more than 7500 (and counting) TEDx events that have occurred since the TEDx program was launched in 2009.
