“Our goal at the conference is not necessarily to walk out with a list of things we’re going to do tomorrow and say, `This is going to solve the problem,’” said Bazadona. “The idea is really just to discuss what the different ideas and directions are. For me, the more open-ended it is, the more excited I am to see where it goes.”

The three organizers have seen the event grow and hope to keep it an annual event. Last year’s TEDxBroadway attracted some 200 people; this year it is expected to double that.

“I think of the conference as a steroid shot to everyone’s imagination. It just stirs everyone up,” said Davenport. “It’s a jolt to everyone’s system and gets everyone thinking in a new and exciting way.”
