There were only one hundred tickets available for TEDxUtica‘s inaugural event but thousands tuned in online and around the world.  The event featured nine speakers and a presentation of TED videos at the Dorothy Smith Advocacy Center in Utica, New York.

Attendees said they found the event “educational, entertaining, and inspiring.”  Although it was widely considered a resounding success by most attendees, there is no official word yet from event organizers as to whether there will be another next year.  There will be a TEDxUtica Salon at the Mohawk Valley Center for Refugees on Thursday, November 21, 2013.

Featured speakers were from the Mohawk Valley and beyond: Martin Babinec, Omar Baddar, Martin Butts, Kelli O’Brien Corasanti, Renee Heitmann, Cindy Buckley-Koren, Susan Osborn, Alex Sheen, and John Zogby.  A formal LiveStream party was held at Mohawk Valley Community College with more than one hundred other informal LiveStream logins registered around the world. Journalists from as far away as Japan’s NHK Television, which flew their Los Angeles bureau reporters to Utica to cover the event.
