A SOLD OUT EVENT!
We’ll be broadcasting the event live! Just keep an eye out on our webcast page for the feed on the day of the event.
300 years of San Antonio history. Living in the now. Charting our own destiny.
TEDxSanAntonio presents its 2018 Main Event: Past, Present, Future.
For the first time ever, our annual Main Event will be in downtown San Antonio at the beautiful, historic Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, Saturday, November 3rd.
We heard community feedback about the length of previous events, so this year we will be featuring a half-day program.
We’ll still have live TED-style talks from local leaders and global experts, in addition to visiting our favorite recorded TED talks. We’ll also still have networking opportunities with the speakers and other attendees at our exclusive after party.
