What is TEDxAsburyPark?

TEDxAsburyPark is one of the largest and top-rated TEDx conferences on the East Coast, a stage to share
ideas, and a place to build community. Our four previous editions – Shore Life, Play, Accelerators, and Makers
– were all sold out events at Two River Theater and Monmouth University. Our fifth year sold out the
Paramount Theatre in Convention Hall as we transitioned from TEDxNavesink to TEDxAsburyPark, a true
staple in the history of New Jersey shore towns.

Our team blends locally discovered ideas with leading speakers and entertainers to present ‘ideas worth
spreading’. In addition to our annual, full-day conference, TEDxAsburyPark holds TEDx Raw events throughout
the year to provide new voices with the opportunity to audition and to give audience members the chance to
witness part of the process.

Speakers and organizers who work to build TEDxAsburyPark are all volunteers devoted to building a
community of idea-loving people.



About TEDx

x = independently organized event
TEDx events are self-organized programs that bring together people and ideas on a more local level to produce
TED-styled events anywhere. Although TEDx events are produced independently of TED conferences, TED
provides general guidance and rules.

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization with the mission of spreading ideas to change lives and create a global
community. TED conferences achieve this typically through short, but powerful talks given by some of the
world’s leading thinkers and doers. The movement began in 1984 and covered topics such as Technology,

Entertainment, and Design and has grown today to cover almost everything. Many initiatives have grown out of
the movement including the TED Prize which is given annually and allows individuals the opportunity to put
their dreams into action, the Open Translation Project which transcribes any TEDtalk worldwide, and
TEDGlobal, which is held annually in the UK.
