TEDxWeekendVienna was a world premiere and a format dedicated to foster and support TEDx organizers from all over the world in order to enhance and improve their local events. Together with TEDx ambassador Niki Ernst we organized the first TEDxWeekend in Vienna just a few weeks before TEDxWeekendSingapur took place. 300 organizers from 44 countries as well as the TEDx team from New York shaped the 3-days event. The gathering kicked-off at Sofiensäle with a TEDx salon followed by numerous workshops and networking opportunities during the weekend. The closing event – an unforgettable Sunday afternoon barbecue – took place at Stadtflucht Bergmühle.
