Have You Heard the Buzz?
Every year, there’s an unmistakable buzz emanating from the loft at TEDxBroadway at New World Stages. It’s not a technical glitch or a sound issue. Nope, it’s the sound of TEDxBroadway Young Professionals and Students, who are enthusiastically chatting about what they’re experiencing that day.
We’re really proud of these programs. From the TEDxBroadway get-go we knew we wanted to have the widest variety of speakers on stage and the widest variety of audience members in attendance. Because, when you’re asking, “What’s the BEST Broadway can be?” it takes a community that has diverse perspectives and extraordinary passion for the topic.
The TEDxBroadway Young Professionals and Student programs ensure that this important group is in the room and can lend their voices to the conversation. And, of course, for that we want to thank The Nederlander Organization, EBG (Entertainment Benefits Group) and Disney Theatricals for underwriting this. Because of them, selected participants get a free ticket to the main event. Also, they are invited into a private social group with opportunities to engage with other young professionals, TEDxBroadway speakers, TEDxBroadway Young Professional alums and established leaders in the Broadway community before, during and after the conference.
If you’re a young professional (or know of a great candidate), here’s what you need to know to apply to attend TEDxBroadway 2018 as a Young Professional:

And, if you haven’t yet, make sure you get your ticket here to TEDxBroadway 2018 on Tuesday, February 27, 2018. Come find out what the buzz is all about.
