Do You Have a Great Idea Worth Spreading?

Join us at Pitch Night. Audition to speak at TEDxGreenville 2020.

Have you always wanted to give a TED talk? Do you have a new idea that should be shared? Are you interested in speaking from within the red circle.

On Tuesday, September 17, we are hosting a Pitch Night Event at ZEN. At this event, we will feature three-minute talks from 12 to 15 potential nominees. While their nomination is not guaranteed, at least one speaker at this event will be selected to be fast-tracked in the nomination process to speak at the 2020 conference, on March 27.

If you are interested in speaking at Pitch Night, click here and complete the nomination form. Nominations for the Pitch Event will close at 5:00pm on August 8, 2019.

Participation at Pitch Night IS NOT a requirement to be nominated to speak at TEDxGreenville 2020.

Also note that multiple nominations of a potential speaker will not help the chances of a nominee being selected. Quite the contrary, multiple nominations may hurt the chances of a speaker being selected to speak.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED created a program called TEDx.


TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.


Our event is called TEDxGreenville, where x = independently organized TED event. At our springtime annual conference, TED videos and live presenters will spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

Join us!

TEDxGreenville 2019 will be held Friday, March 29, at the One Center in Downtown Greenville. Don't miss this mind-shifting, immersive day full of fresh ideas and experiences.
