Predictors and Prognosticators: Telling the Future of the Future
Join us for this year’s TEDxSpokane, a culmination of over 35 auditions over the past year which have helped to build and curate this celebration of innovative thinking and ground-breaking ideas. TEDxSpokane 2017 is hosted at the Bing Crosby Theater on October 21, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Guests of this engaging and inspiring experience may expect to be wowed by amazing ideas all day long. The speaker/performer line-up is mostly regional professionals showcasing their expertise with the theme “Predictors and Prognosticators,” telling the future of the future.
One TEDxSpokane curator, Mike Poutiatine, notes “we’ve had an amazing outpouring of ideas for this year’s event, including dozens of applications from Spokane and nearby communities. Now, the fun really begins as we enter the final October event!”
Tickets to TEDxSpokane are $40 (includes all fees) and may be purchased at friendsofthebing.org
