What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

TEDx has been organized in 170 countries around the world and hosted more than 15,000 events since its inception in 2009. In the 9 years of its existence, 100,000 talks have been recorded and uploaded to YouTube. The TEDx Talks YouTube Channel now has over 10 million subscribers and more than 1 Billion views.

That’s a lot of Ideas Worth Spreading!
