"EXPRESS" Theme Highlights the Power of Presenting Ideas to Make Greenville Think and Act Boldly

Check out this year's Speakers

Sixteen of the region’s most engaging speakers and performers graced the Peace Center's Gunter Theatre stage at the TEDxGreenville annual conference Friday, April 6. The all-day event is known for taking its audiences on an intellectual and emotional roller coaster with presenters that delight, challenge, question, answer, disrupt, and enlighten.

“Our goal when choosing presenters is to find inspirational, energetic, and fascinating people who want to create the Greenville of the future. It’s all about presenting the most innovative ideas that Greenville has never seen or heard before,” stated Julian Nixon, Curator and Director of the Presenter Selection Team.

The theme for 2018 was Express. According to Nixon, “The word Express can mean to express a particular genetic trait, or to express oneself through song and dance, or to act with haste. As the community looks towards what the future may hold for Greenville, many are aware that the characteristics of tomorrow's Greenville are created today. So just what do we want our future Greenville to express? Let's talk about it...”

Our Favorite Talks

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.
