It’s be a long and fulfilling journey, bringing unique and radical ideas to the Chicago area over the past 6 years. Since our inaugural event, we’ve influenced thousands of individuals, given voice to brilliant minds, partnered with dozens of forward-thinking organizations, input countless hours of sweat and tears across more than a hundred volunteers and organizers, and have steadily worked our way towards more than a quarter million online talk views.
In 2014, we truly hit a tipping point. With a sold out conference, incredible community support, and more interested than ever before, we’ve capitalized on our growing influence to completely shift directions in size and interaction space.
So, it’s with extreme pride that we announce our 2015 conference venue, the Yellow Box…
…a beautiful, high-tech community center in the heart of Naperville. With incredible, modern design, an open floor plan, and amazing technical abilities, the Yellow Box features all the bells and whistles a growing organization like TEDxNaperville looks for as we continue to inspire change and challenge perceptions.. We look to the Yellow Box and it’s fantastic technical and management team help facilitate that growth over the coming years.
So, what’s in the Yellow Box?
- Full, state-of-the-art audio and visual systems, including multiple cameras for recording, top-of-the-line speaker (audio) arrays, and a variety of large format screens
- New, larger auditorium that seats up to 1100 in stadium-style seating with sectioning options to ensure intimacy for smaller audiences
