Weekly Insights: 3 TED Talks Every Exhibit Marketer Should Watch

If you’re not already a TED junkie, you’re truly missing out on some priceless expertise that can revolutionize your thinking.

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, and the now-legendary conference hosts fascinating speakers from those disciplines and more sharing revolutionary and inspirational talks in a bite-sized format (20 minutes or less). While attendance at the prestigious flagship conference is by application only (and very pricy), there are also many local TEDx events held in cities around the world and all presentations are shared on the TED website and accompanying app for anyone to view.

Now here are three presentations to get you started rethinking your next exhibit experience (and possibly how you live your life).

Drew Dudley: Everyday leadership
(Are you creating lollipop moments on the show floor?)

Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are
(What messages are you sending in your booth?)

Chris Downey: Design with the blind in mind
(How can you design your exhibit to appeal to senses beyond visual?)
