Event Updates

TEDxStJohns 2015 is bringing you a brand new experience!


TEDxStJohns 2015 is bringing you a brand new experience! This year’s event will have the same great ideas (we love our speakers!) with some great new additions to the evening. Bonus, EasternEdge Credit Union is back for a third year with something truly exciting for ticket holders!

First, we’ve changed venue. We’re moving into BMW St. John’s. BMW, as a venue? Yes.

The unique all-glass & open concept design makes this space the perfect backdrop for TEDxStJohns 2015. We want to challenge audience members to creatively rethink the use of spaces in St. John’s. Plus, we’re always striving to offer our audience unique experiences, and BMW brings us a new space & the flexibility to work with many local partners! BMW St. John’s will also be releasing a special car, the only one of its kind in Atlantic Canada.

Second, a food experience. One of the perks of being at BMW is that we don’t have to abide by exclusivity restrictions imposed by many venues. This means we can finally partner with some of the amazing local restaurateurs of St. John’s. So, this year’s TEDxStJohns guests will get to enjoy gourmet snacks from Hitchin’ Kitchen by Blue on Water, and a complimentary drink courtesy of Collingwood Spirits & Wines! More details to come.

Third, complimentary concierge service for TEDxBlack & TEDxRed tickets. After a fun night of sharing ideas, becoming inspired & mingling with the other TEDxStJohns guests, let BMW drive you downtown or home (serving St. John’s proper).

Fourth, there are 200 fewer tickets. Last year we sold 500 tickets to TEDxStJohns. This year there are only 300 tickets available, so make sure you get your tickets early!

Plus, there’s more!

We’ll have a live art display by Justin Fong & Rob Barkhouse (bigger & better this year!) & DJ Lance Wicks of Remix86 will be live. Thomas Jordan will be showcasing his artistic expression with Body Painting! We are very excited for our many fun partner exhibits; Sam Design is designing our space this year and we have a special surprise at the break with Fogtown Barber & ShopAerialists from iFly with Anahareo will be performing during the second half of the show! And at the end of the night, continue mingling and sharing ideas during our Wine Down!

Join us on May 22nd for a night of magical creation, thinking & inspiration as we Make+Belief.
