TEDxPerth 2013 took place on Saturday 26 October 2013. The day ran from 9.30am til 5.00pm and featured four sessions of thought-provoking talks by some of Perth's most remarkable people.  Hailing from a range of disciplines, our speakers shared compelling stories and ideas that re-energised and inspired with remarkable musical performances featured between talks.

Held at the stunning Octagon Theatre at The University of Western Australia, TEDxPerth 2013 was the second largest TEDx event in Australia, behind TEDxSydney at the Sydney Opera House. For the first time, TEDxPerth was also simulcast to the Northbridge Piazza, The Concourse in Chatswood, NSW, and online over the internet.
