When you become a TEDx speaker, you enjoy a world of benefits.

Want to be speaker? Here’s how it works
In April and May 2019, TEDx Venlo will organize 3 Pitching Events.
From these events, the TEDx Venlo Programming Committee will select a number of speakers and invite them to give a talk on the main stage at TEDx Venlo 2019 in November.
The speakers will be chosen based on the strength and originality of their idea, and on the power of their presentation. Also, the speaker and/or the idea must have a connection to the Venlo region.
