Frequently Asked Questions

What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit organisation spreading ideas in the form of short talks (usually no longer than 18 mins). The annual TED conference is held in Vancouver, Canada, but all talks – TED and TEDx alike – go online afterwards, inspiring and entertaining an even broader audience. There are no limits for the kinds of topics a TED Talk can cover – as long as the speaker has an idea worth spreading. TED Talks bring people together, amaze, and challenge you to look at the world differently.

What is TEDx?
TEDx is a program of local and self-organised events licensed by TED. A TEDx event is an opportunity for people to get together for a live TED-like experience rooted in their own community.
