89 Quay Street, Auckland

TEDxAuckland is back in Shed 10 on Queens Wharf to host its 2018 TEDx event on the 13th October. Speakers from across New Zealand and around the world will come together to share ideas worth spreading. 

Saturday 13th October: 9am – 8pm
After party information to follow at a later date.

The theme for this year's event is Off-Piste:

  • Venturing into uncharted territory.
  • Going where no one where has gone before.
  • Exploring new and innovative ideas.
  • Taking risks and saying fuck it.

Think of this year's TEDxAuckland as an ideas festival, celebrating new and unique ideas, local producers, and our city of Auckland. Shed 10 allows the innovative TEDxAuckland community to create a unique and memorable fixture on the waterfront.
