What are the monthly meetings like?

TEDxOrlandoSalon events are held at Valencia College locations.

A typical meeting draws approximately 50 smart, interesting, engaged people. Some will be regulars and some will be newcomers.

Two TEDTalk videos are shown, each followed by a discussion break. The event program is determined by vote, and discussions are open-ended.

Light refreshments will be provided, courtesy of Valencia College.

Please note that Salon events do not feature live speakers; the focus is on participation in conversation and discussion.

Where are they held?

TEDxOrlandoSalon events rotate on an every-other-month basis through Valencia College locations.

TEDxOrlando Code of Conduct

TEDxOrlando and TEDxOrlandoSalon are about the exchange of meaningful ideas and deep discussion, not selling. Opportunities do sometimes result from contacts made at our meetings and we encourage that. However, we ask that you refrain from using TEDxOrlando or TEDxOrlandoSalon primarily as a platform for promoting yourself, your personal political or religious views, your business, or your organization.
