Ted talks, Marrakesh

We are pleased to announce that on September 20th and 21st the third TEDxMarrakech will be take place. Organised by Richard Branson’s sister, Vanessa Branson, and Andrea Kolb, this exciting two-day event includes a Friday night dinner and cocktail at Ana Yela, a whole day of stimulating and exciting talks on the Saturday and lunch by the Riad el-Fenn pool.

The theme is ‘Driving Forces’, so expect plenty of insight, wit and intelligence from the likes of Eric Van Hove (conceptual artist), Yossef Ben-Meir (Founder and President of the High Atlas Foundation), Gary Martin (Director of the Global Diversity Foundation) and Mariana Bozesan (Official Member of the Club of Rome), amongst others.

Topics to be discussed will all focus on the ‘driving forces’ theme, which might mean talking about social injustice, climate change and fear of the unknown, or art, architecture and design. As with all TED talks, there will be wit and analysis and the opportunity to meet like-minded people.

Tickets are on a first come, first serve basis and cost 700 MAD (70 Euros) for the TEDx conference on Saturday 9am-5pm or 800 MAD (80 Euros) for the full weekend (Friday reception, Saturday evening soiree).

In a nutshell, here’s what you can expect:

  • Open-minded discussions
  • In one of the most historic places in the world: The Medina of Marrakesh
  • 100 carefully selected guests
  • 10 mind blowing, inspiring speakers
