The second annual TEDxMaui event attracted over 1,000 Maui residents and visitors to the Maui Arts & Cultural Center (MACC)’s Castle Theater on Sunday, the organizers announced today.
The daylong event brought together celebrated presenters from Hawai‘i and beyond to share their big ideas on stage in 18 minutes or less. Among the audience members were organizers of TEDx events from around the globe (including TEDxSiberia), presenters from last year’s TEDxMaui event, and rock legends Mick Fleetwood and Steven Tyler. In addition, the event streamed to hundreds of people watching from around the globe.
The presentations were documented in a multi-camera live video shoot, and will be edited and posted to the TEDx YouTube channel in March, the organizers said.
