“TEDxNaperville 11.11.11 was just out-of-this-world amazing. The speakers were some of the most original I’ve ever seen and the venue made it one of the most immersive and fulfilling conferences I’ve ever been to.” – TEDxNaperville 2011 Attendee
In 2011, TEDxNaperville moved to a new venue, that offered a truly unique experience of added multimedia and cutting edge projection capabilities. Over 12 speakers and performers were featured, including Red Bull Airforce founder Othar Lawrence, and artist Thomas Negovan, who used the venue’s 40 foot video walls to a add whole new dimension to his talk.
