TEDxVenlo was sold out in 2015, 2016 and 2017. If you are considering the opportunity to take the stage during TEDxVenlo 2018, now is your chance. Just sign up for our pitch nights. And if you are still in doubt here are three reasons why you should not miss out on being a possible speaker at this year’s TEDxVenlo.


As a TEDxVenlo speaker, you’ll be part of a unique community that will propel your message not only locally but on a global scale. Participation in the TEDx events has launched careers and taken people to new professional and personal heights. The experience is often life-changing. But don’t take our word for it. Let our speakers do the talking.

#1 Ticking of your bucket list
Roy Lenders, speaker at TEDxVenlo:  “Participating in a TEDx- event is like ticking off an item on your professional bucket list, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event.”  

#2 Great coaching
“The road to my talk was really valuable, because I learned even more about my own motivation and passion, thanks to practice and great coaching.” Alie de Boer is now an assistant professor in the field of nutrition and food law at Campus Venlo of the Faculty of Humanities and Sciences of Maastricht University. During last year’s TEDx event she was the first speaker who took the stage at De Maaspoort.

#3 You’re famous
“Even now, months after my talk, people come up to me to tell me that they are using tips from my talk”, says Howard Lettinga, senior international editor at Océ, a Canon company. The speaker and TEDxVenlo coach gave a talk last year in De Maaspoort and shared his TED tools for life.  “It is very gratifying.”

So what are you waiting for? You can sign up here.  And maybe you will stand on the big stage at the Maaspoort this year.
