TEDxTraverseCity is more than a one day event. We host gatherings throughout the year called Salons. These are smaller gatherings, usually in an area gallery or restaurant, centered around a single topic or current theme.
Join us May 13, 2015 at Northwestern Michigan College.
In 2014, TEDxTraverse City welcomed a day of "game changing" speakers. Photos and videos from the event will be shared on this site. Smaller salon events will take place throughout the year. We hope you can join us on May 13, 2015 for the next TEDxTraverse City.

Paradox Thoughts Virtues
TEDxTraverseCity will bring together the most innovative and inspiring minds. The inspirational day will honor innovators who have passion, curiosity, creativity and adaptability to change the world with revolutionary ideas.
TEDxTraverseCity began in 2011 as the brainchild of Paul Sutherland of FIM Group and Tim Nelson of Northwestern Michigan College, and has grown into one of the most hotly anticipated yearly events in the Traverse City area.
The daylong event is intended to educate, inspire and connect great minds. TEDxTraverseCity will provide an opportunity to broaden understanding and knowledge in order to make the great Northern Michigan region one of the most exciting and promising areas. TEDxTraverseCity attendees will hear new ways of thinking, learn about breakthroughs and be motivated by those accelerating innovation and improving the lives of citizens around the world. The goal is to have each person walk away feeling enlightened, motivated and dedicated to making a difference in their lives as well as the lives of others.
