Schedule

TEDxPortsmouth will be a full day event, with our program running roughly 9am – 6pm, preceded by a networking/registration hour starting at 8am.

We will have four sessions packed with insightful and groundbreaking speakers, captivating performances and curated TED Talk videos — all centered around this year’s theme: That was Then. We will have a morning and afternoon experiential break and a lunch hour (lunch is included with your ticket purchase). Light refreshments are served during all breaks, and we’re ending with a post-even after-party (after party ticket + one drink ticket are also included in your ticket price). We encourage attendees to bring a reusable water bottle (perhaps your TEDxPiscataquaRiver water bottle, which we gifted each attendee of last year’s event) to reduce plastic.

* All food served throughout the day, including coffee service, is included with ticket.
