The event hosted approximately 400 participants, and also included live webcasts to provide access to viewers worldwide.

Speakers included the following:-

  • Gary Hirshberg, Chairman of Stoneyfield Farm,

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
