TEDx has made its way to Boca Raton, launching its first ever TEDx Boca Raton event this May.

The worldwide nonprofit is known for its short talks, performances and demonstrations dedicated to “ideas worth spreading.” On May 9 at 8 a.m., 24 influential community members will present their ideas at Florida Atlantic University’s University Theatre.

The diverse speaker list – which boasts a hypnotist, a political analyst, an award-winning musician and a parkour instructor, to name a few – is sure to keep the audience riveted.

Stay tuned. We’ll be posting up an interview with event organizer Becky Woodbridge soon. The blog will cover how the event came to Boca, the community’s support and how Becky made it all happen.

Tickets are $100 for general admission and $30 for FAU students. Additional fees may apply.
