Tickets are on sale for TEDxUniversityofNevada, set for Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017. Cost is $100 and includes more than 15 TEDx talks, five performances, a boxed lunch and refreshments. Student ticket cost is $30 with a valid student ID from an area school. New this year, the event will move to the Grand Theatre at the Grand Sierra Resort. The 2,700-seat theatre is a natural fit for the event. After selling out the 1,200-seat Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts last year, the new venue will offer even more people the opportunity to share in a meaningful TEDx experience and will foster a more diverse audience.
