what is a SALON event?

At a TEDx salon, attendees watch TED Talks, sometimes host a few speakers (though it’s not required) and have informal discussions about the talks they witnessed. Salons are an opportunity to keep the campus community engaged in the time between our annual main stage events. The format is very flexible and allows our club to create a unique experience for attendees. Salon events are focused around a central idea or topic unlike the main event, where we strive to include many different topics under a broad theme.
