TED stands for ‘Technology, Entertainment, Design’. Between Feb. 28 and Mar. 2 at Moscow’s MODDesign Center for Contemporary Design and Innovation for Life you can watch live a major conference that costs its actual guests about $7,500/ticket.
The conferences’ mission is sharing out what the hosts call ‘ideas worth spreading’. This Big TED that brings together in California the world’s brightest brains has a lot of names: “Tough Brain Fitness”, “A Four-day Journey into the Future in Company of Those Who Create it”, and others.
Due to the time difference between Moscow and California’s Long Beach we will have four NIGHTS instead of days. It’s worth it! Watching a ‘Big TED’ gives you a unique opportunity to be one of the first to find out about technology of the future; recorded broadcasts usually go on air months after the event. The discoveries to be announced at a TED turn into game-changers for entire sectors; so whoever learns the Great Ideas first grabs a chance of applying them to his businesses—before they become a buzzword globally.
The broadcast organizer, GreenfieldProject, hopes that watching the thing in a big company will give viewers new knowledge and an opportunity for useful networking and socializing.
This year’s ‘Big TED’ will be watched in English between Feb. 28 and Mar. 2, 2012 at Moscow’s MODDesign Center for Contemporary Design and Innovation for Life, located in the Krasnaya Presnya area at 2, Malyi Konyushkovsky Lane, Barrikadnaya metro (click here to see your itinerary).
