About the event

Our fourth TEDxExeter conference will take both the long view back into the past and the long view ahead into the future, and ask how they can reveal and help us to understand the challenges that face us now, and shape the way we live, make decisions, and innovate. TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection.

Your tickets will give you access to a day of barn-storming talks and performances, a sustainably-sourced buffet lunch and refreshments during breaks. Registration on the day will start at 8.25am, and the event itself will start at 9.25am and end at 5pm.
