What TED is...

In 1984, TED held its first conference about technology, entertainment, and design. Since then, TED has become one of the most well-known outlets for the discussion and sharing of ideas. TED's billions of views and thousands of talks have made it famous for its short, impactful talks, through which TED shares a diversity of "ideas worth spreading" with a global audience.


What TEDx is...

TEDx is a program developed by TED to support independent groups or individuals who want to bring TED-like experiences to their local communities through independently-organized events. In spirit of TED, TEDx brings people together to spark conversation and connection within a community. A typical TEDx event takes place within the span of a day, and it involves a series of short presentations and performances. During and after a TEDx event, members of the audience are given a chance to interactively engage in conversation with other audience members and speakers alike.
