TEDxRIGA 2019 to Take Place with the Support of OP Bank

[08.11.2019]

On 22 November, the eight TEDxRiga conference will take place at the National Library of Latvia with the support of OP Bank and the participation of more than 20 domestic and foreign public figures.

This year’s theme is “Together”. According to the conference organisers, this theme highlights the fact that together we are not only stronger in numbers, but also more tolerant towards diversity and individuality, more responsible for minorities and more generous with our influence. This year is also the 30th anniversary of the Baltic Way – the perfect time for looking back into the past to see what the power of true togetherness can achieve.

OP Corporate Bank plc Latvia Branch is supporting TEDxRiga for the second year. “Prospering together is one of the fundamental values of OP Bank, so we are happy to support both our entrepreneurs on their road to success and the TEDxRiga 2019 conference that inspires many for new achievements. Ideas are at the core of any business. When implemented, they create new values and promote the growth and wellbeing of the public. Hand in hand we regained our country’s independence through the Baltic Way and hand in hand we can create good ideas that strengthen our country’s economy and improve the environment we live in. May we succeed together,” says Elmārs Prikšāns, Head of OP Corporate Bank plc Latvia Branch.

The national TEDxRiga conference within the prestigious TED movement annually brings together both Latvian and foreign professionals of various fields, such as scientists, entrepreneurs and creatives, to share their personal inspirational stories. During the seven years of organising TEDxRiga, 149 speakers have shared their message from the stage and through the TEDx YouTube channel, which has nearly 2 million views.
