TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading” that shares media and supports educational initiatives.

At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x means it is an independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. All presentations are recorded and shared through TEDx media.
