Talk about a hot ticket.

Just 24 hours after registration opened, every seat at the Edmonds Center for the Arts was reserved for TEDxSnoIsleLibraries 2016.

Now, there’s a chance to get a pre-event glimpse thanks to the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation.

“The response to event registration was just overwhelming,” Foundation Executive Director Paul Pitkin said. “The foundation had been planning a small, private event prior to the TEDx for our donors. However, after speaking with library officials, we decided to significantly expand the program and invite the public.”

Pitkin’s vision will take off at 6:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 4, at the Future of Flight, in Mukilteo. Tickets are available online.

“We’re calling it, ‘Ideas Worth Celebrating: A TEDxSnoIsleLibraries xClusive,’” Pitkin said. He added that attendees will be able to:

  • Meet the 2016 speakers and learn the topics they will be discussing before anyone else.
  • Hear follow up talks from 2015 speakers about their personal and professional transformations.
  • Find out how the speakers develop their talks

“We’ll also have a TEDxSalon-style panel discussion with speakers from both 2015 and 2016,” Pitkin said. The two-hour event will include appetizers and beverages along with live music from past and present TEDxSnoIsleLibraries presenters.

“This is not a re-creation of the TEDxSnoIsleLibraries event on Nov. 18,” Pitkin said. “This is a peek behind the curtain of TEDx, meet the speakers and see how it’s done.”
