September, 9 — Nizhny Novgorod, Russia — MERA became a speaker and a sponsor of the first local
TEDx conference uniquely titled TEDxYouth@KulibinPark. The event closely followed the format and
design of the TED Talk videos: the stage and setup decorated in red and white, a screen presentation
behind the speaker, a large 3D TEDx logo on the stage, warm lighting in the background. Speaker
communicated their ideas in the English language and each presentation was limited to 18 minutes.

TEDx gathered 150+ people, including 9 extraordinary speakers ready to share their inspiring and
innovative ideas. All the performers were talking about changes that are happening or are yet to happen
in their personal or professional life. The event presented multiple issues and diversity of topics falling
within the scope of the conference theme: self-development, digital footprints and big data, leadership in
business, navigation, communication, art, literature, medicine, life purpose and many others.

Maxim Leykin, Project Manager at MERA, participated in the event as a speaker. He addressed the issue
of the application of new technologies in our everyday lives. During his presentation, Maxim
demonstrated a number of different use cases for Bluetooth beacons that can change our life for the
better. In between the live speakers’ presentations, the audience watched TED Talk videos and networked
with other guests in a Telegram chat.

The best TEDx Talks will be uploaded to the TED official website for the whole world to see.
