TEDxOshkosh Announces 2018 Speaker Pitch Night on February 26th

Published Friday, February 9, 2018

Have you ever wanted to be on the TEDxOshkosh stage? Do you have a new “idea worth spreading?” TEDxOshkosh is seeking speakers for the 3rd Annual TEDxOshkosh to be held on November 10th, 2018 and will host a 2018 Speaker Pitch Night on Monday, February 26th from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Waters at 1393 Washington Avenue in Oshkosh.


TEDxOshkosh spreads ideas and perspectives to spark conversation and connections in the community.  Those interested should bring their idea to the Pitch Night and give the TEDxOshkosh team their best 4 minutes. Speakers are encouraged to show up promptly at 5:30 p.m.; no registration needed. Speakers will take the stage on a first come, first served basis. At least one of the ideas from Pitch Night will show up on the stage for TEDxOshkosh 2018.


TEDxOshkosh is searching for ideas that break through borders, change lives and ultimately can change the world. And most importantly ideas that are new. The TEDxOshkosh team encourages scientists, artists, technologists, businesses, not-for-profits, charities, young and old, and all diverse sections of society to pitch their idea to speak at TEDxOshkosh 2018. If you, your work, or your community project is working on something that encompasses the theme of “ideas worth spreading” then TEDxOshkosh wants to hear from you.


The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend to hear those who aspire to be a TEDxOshkosh speaker. A cash bar will be available.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
