This March, the world renowned and official TED Conference is leaving its Long Beach, California location for a new home in Vancouver.

 

Some of the brightest and most inspirational icons, mavericks and geniuses will be coming to Vancouver to share their innovative and trend setting ideas. Speaker highlights for this year include Bill and Melinda Gates, Chris Hadfield, Sting, Zak Ebrahim, Rob Knight, Randall Monroe, Yoruba Richen, Wendy Chung and Chris Kluwe. See below for the full list of speakers.

Speakers will touch on topics ranging from technology, entertainment, design and education to climate change, architecture, music, physics, parenting, typography, and fireflies.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, The TED Conference will be held from March 17 to March 21, 2014 at the Vancouver Convention Centre’s West Building. The building’s West Ballroom, one of the largest and most stunning ballrooms in Canada, will be temporarily converted into a purpose-built theatre for TED.

The official event will be held in Vancouver for at least two years and is the first time the global TED event has held outside of California. Its companioning event TEDActive will also be relocating to Whistler and will be held simultaneously with the TED Conference.

Given that this is the organization’s new home, TED and its staff are now headquartered in both Vancouver and New York City.

1,200 tickets for the TED Conference were sold out last year following an detailed application phase. Successful applicants were able to purchase the tickets, sold at price categories of $7,500, $15,000 and $125,000.

For participants in the event, the TED Conference experience will include music, comedy, dance, short talks, special break out sessions, art exhibits, tech demos, immersive experiences and other surprises.

Those who would like to watch the speakers live via video streaming from their homes, offices and universities need to pay $600 to $2,500 depending on location. Following the event, videos of the famous 18-minute talks will be published on TED’s YouTube channel.
