"Buffalo, color us impressed. We had some tough decisions to make when selecting this year’s speaker lineup from all of the amazing pitch videos submitted, and the TEDxBuffalo team is thrilled to introduce you to the 13 speakers who will be sharing their “Ideas Worth Spreading” at TEDxBuffalo 2014.
Before we do that, though, we’d like to take a second to remind you that there’s still time to apply to attend this year’s event, which will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 14
at the Montante Cultural Center at Canisius College.
Attendee applications close this Sunday, Aug. 17! (If you can’t spend the full day with us, we’ll of course be streaming the event right here at TEDxBuffalo.com, and we’ll be announcing remote viewing site information soon.)"
