Introduction<br />TEDtoChinaSalon was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." It is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. Salon is a small quarterly recurring event that keeps a TEDtoChinacommunity engaged between larger TEDx events.<br />
Speakers in different fields<br />It started out (in Apr. 2010) as a regional meet-up bringing together people from different domains, art, design, business, education, technology, etc. More TED speakers will join our salon in the future.<br />
