Social spaces at TED Long Beach


As you can see above, the lobby of the Terrace Theater is big. To bring it down in scale, and create more intimacy and connection for attendees, this year we divided the lobby and Plaza into nine areas we call “social spaces.” We’ll profile or photoblog each social space on the TED Blog. One feature they all share: hosted conversations, little mini chatrooms on each break, with titles like “Parenting on the Edge” and “San Francisco: The greenest city in the world.”
