Great Heights


This year, on March 9th, we are opening the TEDxRotterdam events with our first mini-conference! We want to start the year off with our new partner the Rotterdam Marriott Hotel, by opening a discussion about what inspires and drives great people, and how did they earn their success. As a way to convey that spirit of self-improvement and growth, our first theme is “Great Heights”, and we cannot wait to share our speakers with you (more on that coming very soon!)


We invite you to meet inspiring people, and join us for the reception afterward! To make things even better, we decided to offer you one free drink with your TEDxRotterdam ticket!


The talks will last an hour, followed by the reception, and it is all hosted by our lovely partner, the Rotterdam Marriott Hotel in Rotterdam. We cannot wait to see you there!
