“Nothing beats the buzz of a live TEDx event…mingling with a bunch of talented people and being inspired in your own home city!”

“TEDx is more than a conference…it is an experience! After attending 2012’s event my life will never be the same. My thinking about education and being a parent has done a complete 180. I left completely fulfilled — and to this day, I remain inspired.”

What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Learn more about TEDx on the TED website.
