Are you ready for TEDxDayton 2016?

We are a few days away from TEDxDayton and are so excited to share this celebration of Dayton’s “ideas worth spreading.” Here are a few things you need to know about the event:

How to prepare and parking: Dress is business casual. The event will be held at Victoria Theatre (138 North Main Street, Dayton, OH 45402). Specific directions can be found on the Victoria Theatre webpage. Parking is available at several garages and surface lots near the theater. Use the Downtown Dayton Partnership’s EasyPark online guide for an interactive map with addresses, hours, pricing, and contact info for all public parking areas.

When you get here: Doors to the Victoria lobby will open at 8:20 a.m.; you may enter the theatre beginning at 8:30 a.m.  This year, we have changed to a ticket-based event to expedite the registration process. Bring your ticket or confirmation email. Feel free to mingle with guests, grab coffee, use the restroom, and get excited for the big day! All guests must be seated by 8:55 a.m.

Event flow: We’ve got a full day of speakers and entertainment we hope will give you plenty of reasons to “SEARCH.” There will be a mid-morning break and another break for lunch. Guests will eat lunch at the Schuster Center across the street; students ticket purchasers will have lunch at Uno’s. Please be careful crossing the street and follow all traffic laws. Restrooms will be available at the Schuster Center and Uno’s. Head back to the Victoria Theatre for the next session, which will resume promptly at 1:30 p.m. We won’t have a formal break in the middle of the afternoon, but we’ll take a quick break to stretch, and the event will end around 3:30 p.m.

Open seating: All seating will be open seating. We have a packed house, so please move toward the middle of the rows and fill in available space.

Ticket information: Please contact Ticket Center Stage for any ticket-related questions by calling (937) 228-3630.

Cell phone policy: Social media is a big part of TEDx. Use #TEDxDayton2016 when sharing your posts, but please hold off on posting until a speaker is done talking. Please, no video during talks. We have professional videographers recording the talks and they will be available online at a later date for your enjoyment. Unauthorized videos may result in our loss of the license, and without it, we can’t bring you more fantastic events like this.

Bring a totally open mind: Don’t come with an agenda and, in return, you will get immeasurable knowledge, inspiration and provocation. It also helps to have a willingness to sit next to, or engage in a conversation with, total strangers. TED events are about community. This is the opportunity for people from many disciplines to engage and collaborate around new ideas. Take advantage of that. In the spirit of this year’s theme, SEARCH for new friends!

Thank you. As always, let us know if you have any questions via the Contact Us form.

If you haven’t already, you can view the list of speakers on the TEDxDayton Speakers Page.
