To the TEDx Condado Speakers, Attendees, Sponsors and Supporters:
Due to the global unprecedented pandemic over COVID-19 (aka the coronavirus), the TEDx Condado conference has been forced to be rescheduled.
However, in the spirit of “The show must go on”, as originally scheduled, on April 4th between 10am - 5pm EST we will be hosting an online only version of the event via a ZOOM Live Stream webinar.
We very much regret this action; we have been preparing for three years after Hurricane Maria to hold once again another TEDx talk in Puerto Rico, many of us considered this event a high point of the year on the island.
It is now clear, however, that large gatherings can pose a public health threat to both the participants and the community. We won’t ask this of our volunteers, speakers and attendees in this current health crisis.
We will be streaming the event via Zoom, so you can watch the speakers from the comfort of your home. We encourage you to dedicate a full day during quarantine times to connect with doers, disruptors, makers and creators from Puerto Rico, Latin America and around the world, as this is an opportunity to get inspired and open up your mind to a new world of possibilities in this historic moment.
We will be rescheduling an in-person TEDx event on September 18th, 2020 and we look forward to connecting with you all in-person once this global crisis is over and travel and large gathering are safe again.
Thanks for your understanding and your support in this challenging time,
Luis Jorge Rios
TEDx Condado Organizer
