Competition: TED 2016 Opening Night Live

Watch the opening session of the TED Conference for the first time on the big screen at Showcase Derby Cinema De Lux on 16th February at 7:00pm.

Hosted by TED’s curator Chris Anderson, the screening of this event will debut the first evening of TED 2016: Dream (live directly from Vancouver, Canada), featuring world-renowned thinkers, artists and storytellers who will share their “ideas worth spreading” about the greatest dreams we are capable of dreaming. What emerges is a spirit of wonder and optimism that represents the world at its best. The “opening night” at TED 2016 will be a one of a kind opportunity to join in the experience with the 1,200 attendees in Vancouver – the world’s leading thinkers and doers who have won every international prize of excellence from Nobel Laureates, to Pulitzer Prize authors, to Oscar winners.
