What are you doing on April 26th, 2014?

Think about it.

Are you getting married? Will you be out of the country? Are you the guest of honor or headliner at a banquet of some sort?

No, you say! We’ll then, mark your calendar. You’re not going to want to miss what we have planned for you, Pittsburgh.

1. Check us out – Are you wondering what we’re all about? What we’ve been up to? What you can expect from us? No need to wonder, just keep reading. I’ll keep it short. Promise.

On April 26th we’ll open the doors to the New Hazlett theater. The audience (maybe you!) will take their seats. Then, the ideas and people moving Pittsburgh forward will take center stage. It’s not simply an event, it’s an experience intended to inspire and inform our city and its people.

2. Meet the team – The TEDxGrandviewAve team is working hard to create an event unlike any other in the Burgh. We’re a young, bootstrapping group of creatives and entrepreneurs. We love being inspired and inspiring others. Most of all, we love Pittsburgh. Take a minute to read our bios. And feel free to connect with us.

3. Go back in time – Did you know we had our first TEDxGVA event last year? It was amazing! See for yourself. Last year’s speakers and their presentations are featured on our website.

4. Show your support – If you like what you’re up to and want to get involved we’d love to get you input. Join the Community Board. Volunteer on the day of the event. Become a sponsor. Or, email us and tell us how you’d like to help.

5. Stay tuned – I know what you’re thinking, I wish it was April too! But, there’s still some time between now and the event. We should definitely stay in touch till then. Let’s connect on Facebook and Twitter. This way you won’t miss the huge announcements we’re going to me in the weeks to come. Like who the speakers are and when tickets go on sale. Kind of important, I now.

TEDxGrandviewAve is Pittsburgh’s platform for showcasing the ideas, individuals and innovations that are redefining the Steel City.

It’s an event, an experience, and a year-round conversation.

2013 marked the first annual TEDxGrandviewAve event. On February 23rd we hosted 9 speakers and 100 attendees. The speakers took us on a compelling trip to the edge of innovation. And, like the city we call home, the TEDxGrandviewAve attendee list was diverse and inspired.

Since the response to and turnout at TEDxGrandviewAve 2013 was so amazing, we’re going even bigger this year!

On April 26th, 2014 we’re hosting over 400 attendees at the New Hazlettet Theater in Pittsburgh’s Historic North Side. We’ll be turning the mic over to the local doers and change-makers who have taken the leap from idea to action.

We know that the speakers are sure to inspire, but you should know that the experience extends beyond the stage. Attendees are encouraged to connect and exchange ideas with one another. After all, that’s how ideas spread, when opportunities, ideas, and people are united under one roof.

Please join us at TEDxGrandviewAve 2014 to experience the ideas and individuals that are shaping the ‘burgh and beyond.
