GREENVILLE, SC - TEDxGreenville organizers announced today the theme and the presenter line up for TEDxGreenville 2018 on April 6, 2018 at the Peace Center’s Gunter Theatre in Downtown Greenville.

The theme for 2018 is 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...”
