“Launching TEDxDayton 2020 as a virtual event provides exciting new avenues for our speakers and performers to explore. This year’s speakers are brave, passionate, thoughtful people whose talks may have even more profound impact due to the intimacy of being presented right there in our audience’s homes.” said Bridget S. Hutt, signature event co-chair. “A virtual event also allows us to expand TEDxDayton’s reach beyond the Dayton area, and to share the strength and resilience that make our city strong.”
The organization will announce additional streaming details and performer names soon.
More information about the speakers, updates about the event, and access to previous event speaker’s talks are available at TEDxDayton.com.
