Apply to Attend TEDxPHXDC

That's right, the ladies from SeeSaw Design, Kobina Banning, Nina Miller and John Takamura will be in one room on August 19. And all you have to do for the chance to rub elbows is apply.

TEDxPHXDC is part of the TEDx program -- the local-level baby of conference nonprofit Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED). At TEDx, community individuals and businesses can interact around live speakers. This time, they're teaming up with Phoenix design community to share ideas and swap geeky design stories, all while promoting local design.

There are only 60 spots, but before you stress, we'll let you in on a secret: the application's a cinch.

More event details and application link after the jump.

Like any good hype-generating event, TEDxPHXDC is hosted in a secret location that's revealed if you're chosen to attend.

Now let's cut to the chase and get to the good stuff. Check out the main event website, speaker bios and submit your application to attend by August 10.
