We’re so excited for the sold-out 2011 TEDxBGSU: Passion. Inspiration. Action.
1. New Event Time: 7:45AM-5:30PM
After very careful deliberation and planning, we have slightly adjusted the time for TEDxBGSU, now from 7:45AM – 5:30PM. This will give each speaker adequate time to share their own idea worth spreading. Registration begins at 7:45AM and the formal program begins at 8:45AM. A few of the day’s most anticipated presenters have those additional time slots, so please stick around for just a few extra minutes.
2. Event Dress Code: Smart Casual
Preferred Dress Code for the event is Smart Casual. Here is a rough description for your reference:
If male, you should wear dress trousers or nice jeans, a long-sleeve shirt, maybe a tie, leather loafers or dressy slip-ons, dress socks, a tipped belt, and you may or may not wear a sport coat.
If female, you should wear slacks, nice jeans, or a skirt, a blouse or sweater, a fashionable belt, a jacket, a vest, or a sweater coordinated to your outfit, and appropriate shoes.
Most importantly, wear something in which you’re comfortable. You’ll be walking from registration, to the auditorium, to lunch, and back, so wear comfortable shoes.
3. Parking: Perry Field House, Lot 18
A campus map can be viewed at http://www.bgsu.edu/map/
Please print your parking pass (emailed to you) and bring it with you on Friday.
4. Registration: 7:45-8:30AM, Perry Field House
Registration opens at 7:45AM in the Perry Field House. We ask that you please be in your seat by 8:45AM at Kobacker Hall in the Moore Musical Arts Center.
5. Breakfast & Lunch
The BGSU Green Fund is sponsoring sustainable meals crafted by BGSU Dining Services from fresh, local ingredients. Bite-sized brain food breakfast treats will be served during registration. This is not your typical continental breakfast, but it’s not a feast, either. Plan accordingly to last until lunch, where we will show you how delicious vegetarian vittles can be!
6. After Party
Join us at the Clazel in Downtown Bowling Green for a TEDxBGSU After Party! This private event will take place right after TEDxBGSU, from 5:30 – 8:00. Historic theater turned dynamic entertainment facility, the Clazel offers a unique atmosphere and over 50 beers on tap.
Enjoy free appetizers and drink specials, network, and mingle with speakers and other attendees before heading out on the town for dinner. Weekend parking is free throughout Downtown Bowling Green. Clazel is located at: 127 N Main St, Bowling Green OH 43402
