What happens when?
Our rough draft of the day – Check regularly for updates!
In the AM
1:00 - 3:00 PM – REGISTRATION
Doors open for the second TEDx conference in Dresden on the theme "Embrace the Future"!
Participants register with their tickets ready (on the phone or printed), receive the conference material and start tweeting (#TEDxDD). Get together in the foyer of the Staatsoperette Dresden.
3:00 - 4:30 PM – FIRST SESSION
Opening remarks and first round of speakers.
Our video and photo team (most of them sitting in the audience) closely follow the talks. They also memorize or note down the question they want to discuss afterwards.
4:30 - 5:30 PM – COFFEE BREAK AND DISCUSSIONS
Refreshments and snacks provide our guests with enough energy to stay focused for the next 90-minute session. Ideas from the first session are highly debated, yet our participants are curious about the next round which starts on-time.
5:30 - 7:00 PM – SECOND SESSION
The audience is excited to listen to the second round of speakers.
At this point, almost everyone has put their mobile phones on silence.
7:00 - 8:00 PM – DINNER AND DISCUSSIONS
Over some delicious dinner people continue discussing what ideas they want to implement in their lives.
Guests, sponsors and local projects meet at different corners of our venue. Others sneak inside the auditorium to take some selfies in front of the TEDxDresden letters.
8:00 - 9:30 PM – THIRD SESSION
Let's go for the third and last round of speakers today.
The audience is again attentive and tunes in for new inspiring ideas.
9:30 - 10:00 PM: END OF CONFERENCE
That's it, folks!
Thank you for participating in "Embrace the Future", the 2nd TEDx conference in Dresden!
We invite you to relax in the foyer and exchange contact details with new acquaintances. Take a breath and reflect what this day meant to you. But, wait!
10:30 PM – OPEN END: AFTERSHOW PARTY
As last year, you are warmly invited to continue the evening and have some drinks with us. Don't be shy if you feel like dancing! Someone in our team will definitely have more awkward dance moves ready.
We'll give you further details on this soon.
IN THE COMING WEEKS: TALKS ONLINE
Videos of the talks will be made available to you as soon as possible. They will be uploaded on the officialTEDx channel on YouTube.
Hope to see you at one of our next events!
