The TEDx GVA team has been crazy busy.
In fact, we’ve been working so hard on this year’s installment of TEDxGrandviewAve, we almost forget to wish ourselves Happy Anniversary!
It’s been an entire year, 365 + days, since our very first event. Back on February 23rd, 2013 we invited one hundred or so folks out to hear 10 fantastic speakers share their ideas and experiences. They didn’t disappoint. Pittsburgh took center stage. Energy, innovation and inspiration stole the show.
It was terrific and terrifying. Hosting an event of any kind can be. In the end, it was all worth it. We went to the edge of innovation. Once we did, there was no turning back. There was only one option, go even bigger. And we are. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
This year’s event will have over 400 guests. We’d love to have you! You’ll be blown away by our speaker list. From top to bottom, we’ve set out to create an event and experience that will showcase Pittsburgh and her people. The one’s who Dare to Create, and the others who need a spark to ignite their creativity. Join us on April 26th, 2014. The speakers, attendees, team and our collective energy are sure to be the spark you’ve been waiting for.
