What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxWilmingtonSalon, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxWilmingtonSalon, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. 
TEDxWilmingtonSalon is organized by TEDxWilmington under a license granted to Ajit Mathew George from TED.
