I think this is the right place for this. TEDx comes to Dublin on September 14th this year with 15 speakers discussing topics around science, architecture and art, among others.

Speakers here - http://www.tedxdublin.com/speakers/

Tickets are out today, and at an early bird rate of €20. I've picked up 2. Something different if anyone is stuck for something to do in 5 months time

Are these the speakers for 2013?

No, that seems to be a link to details of last year's conference. Couldn't find any info myself on this year's event. Picked up 2 tickets anyway, bound to be interesting!

Can't see the site in work.

Do you buy the tickets from the website or is it somewhere else?

Good spot - I had just assumed they were the speakers for this year. Should definitely be interesting in any case.

Went last year. It was awful. Most definitely won't be going back.

Listening to an artist ****e on about how great her own work is (she wanted to design a golden submarine and put a human heart inside it and hang it from the ceiling for some cathedral - I **** you not), a few very very mediocre speakers, some absolutely ****e band that obviously had links to the organisers coupled with one or two genuinely interesting speakers. It lasted for about 6 hours as well.

It really reminded me of the Science Gallery. You think it's going to be cool and interesting but it's just crappy art dressed up in some sham shroud of science. Not surprising as it is run in collaboration with the Gallery. Avoid.

Hi - I'm looking for one ticket for this event. If anyone can help me out I'd be very grateful!

Looking for two tickets for this if anyone has any spare, have been keeping an eye out months & still managed to miss it

I could do with a couple too if anyone knows where to get any.

I emailed the Bord Gais a couple of weeks ago seeing if I could get them there and they said there were a couple left and directed me to ticketmaster but I had already tried there and couldn't get any..

I could do with a couple of tickets too if anyone can help.
