The next TED Talks Conference takes place from April 24-27, 2017 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. However tickets for the event can be a little mind-blowing for the average person at $2,000 - $6,000 a seat, plus the fact that they are already sold out!

This year, you can watch the event in a special experience for cinemas, captured live. There will be 3 shows available for viewing in select cinemas across Vancouver starting April 24th.
