What are the Benefits of Your Sponsorship?

TEDxPineCrestSchool invites you to join us as an event sponsor. Your sponsorship will help us create a high-quality event that promotes student learning and community dialogue. Event sponsors will benefit from exposure and visibility before a well educated and energized audience of faculty, staff, students, alumni, parent body and community guests. The event will be broadcast live to the broader Pine Crest School and Fort Lauderdale communities through the PCTV website and live stream services. Videos from the event will also be posted on the TEDxYouTube channel and TEDx website.

As an officially licensed TEDx event, TEDxPineCrestSchool abides by all the TEDxRules. As such TEDxPineCrestSchool does not generate any revenue from the event. Last year, we offered our program 100% free and open to the public, and we aim to do the same with next year's "Liminal Spaces" both to a live audience and through live streaming broadcast. Last year, we achieved a high-quality production at minimal costs by relying on school-allocated funds and do-it-yourself services. View last year's budget. We will continue to limit costs, but we also aim to improve and grow TEDxPineCrestSchool to offer the highest-quality programming and professional event possible. We also guarantee 100% transparency with the event budget.
