TED has totally changed the conference experience as it put the previous norm into a new dimension and it has evolved into probably the most exciting, the most requested and the most serious, non-professional conference in the world.

TED creates such an intense and stimulating environment where participants can get deeper knowledge of each other and therefore the world and also themselves, it can inspire and enrich the way we think and all these can lead to new solutions and projects.

TED has grown to a phenomenon well known all over the world, as the most effective format of ideas worth spreading. The videos of TED and TEDx talks together get billions of views, providing for the infotainment platform reaching the most people over the planet.


What is TED?

TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 110 languages. At TED conferences the presentations are recorded on a video which is available at TED.com after the event.

Loads of well-known and less-known performers have appeared on the TED stage so far, quite often giving an unconventional, thought-provoking and stimulating presentation: Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Elizabeth Gilbert, Philippe Starck, Alain de Botton, Isabel Allende, Gordon Brown, David Deutsch or Bono. The audience of TED comes typically from a heterogeneous background who are open, intelligent, positive and socially active.


What is TEDx?

TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.” TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe via “rules and tools”. 

TEDx events are organized by passionate individuals who seek to uncover new ideas and the latest research in their local areas and spark conversations in their communities.
