Make+Belief with TEDxStJohns happens Friday night!
TEDxStJohns 2015 is finally here! We can’t wait to see you tonight for an evening of Make+Belief! Here’s everything you need to know about Friday’s event:
Arriving at BMW St. John’s – 120 Kenmount Road
Doors open at 6:30 pm, the show starts at 7:30 pm sharp!
Seating is first come, first serve in the General & Red ticket sections. This is a sold-out event with over 350 people, so arrive early to get your spot! Black ticket holders have reserved seating.
Parking is available at the rear of the building.
The entrance for the event is at the Service Reception on the side of the BMW building (facing Capital Subaru).
Concierge service is available for Red & Black ticket holders to drive you home at the end of the night! (Serving St. John’s proper.)
Tickets: Please print your ticket and bring it with you or have your e-ticket ready on your phone.
Everybody will need to present ID. Alcohol is being served and it is required by law for us to check IDs at the door. IDs will also be used to verify ticket ownership.
Credit cards only for the bar. There will be a bar at the venue that is open all evening! We’ll be using a Square reader, which only accepts credit cards.
After 7:25 PM, guests will only be seated in-between talks. Make sure you are on time to avoid missing any of the show!
Wondering what to wear? The attire for TEDxStJohns is generally smart casual. It’s a fun night out on the town, we dare you to dress up a little!
As a reminder, this will be a scent-free environment. Please avoid perfumes and cologne.
In an effort to reduce our waste we are providing digital programs. Click here to view the online program. Feel free to print a copy of the program and bring it with you if you do not have a smartphone or would prefer a hard-copy!
Please no photography while speakers are presenting. Flash photography distracts speakers & phone screens make our cameras do crazy things, & distract other attendees from the presentation.
We have three professional photographers at the event, and we will share all photos on social media after the event!
We will be serving a gourmet snack from Hitchen the Kitchen food truck by Blue on Water, however this not a full meal, so make sure you eat before you come!
6:30 PM – Doors open
7:30 PM – The show begins – 1st session
8:40 PM – Conversation break – mix & mingle!
9:20 PM – 2nd session
10:45 PM – Wine Down – drinks and great conversation!
TEDxStJohns Wine Down
Engaging in deep conversation with other attendees is a vital component of creating a TED-like experience! Come prepared to meet new people and share new ideas.
BMW will stay open after the event for a Wine Down reception. The bar will be open & our DJ will be spinning live! We encourage everybody to stay out and continue the conversations with your TEDxStJohns community. Make it one of your goals to meet as many new people as possible!

We look forward to an evening of ideas worth spreading at TEDxStJohns 2015! See you soon!
