tedxqueenstown speakers 2014Kiwi artist Dick Frizzell, nutrition specialist Dr Libby Weaver and MEGA CEO Vikram Kumar have been announced as speakers for TEDxQueenstown 2014.

Following on from this year’s inaugural event, TEDxQueenstown 2014 is all about 'place' - ideas around who we are, where we live, and what's important to us.

“Sense of place is about how we choose to define ourselves. These speakers will bring us on a journey to explore different aspects of that," co-curator Trent Yeo says.

“Queenstown is an extraordinary place which has drawn people from all over the world to live and call home. It is hence a very fitting stage to explore how we define the meaning of sense of place individually and collectively.”

Ticket sales and additional speakers will be announced in January.

When: February 22

Where: Queenstown Memorial Centre
