What is TEDx?

Inspiring ideas go around the world.

2017 it starts in Dresden: 12 talks, 12 ideas, 700 participants.

A world trip made possible by TEDx. TED is a US non-proft organization that brings world-class thinkers and committed participants together.

TED stands for inspiration, progress and entertainment. Talks are usually very well prepared and rhetorically excellent. The talks are professionally recorded and made available to millions of viewers online.

In 2016, TEDx - the x stands for independent - arrived in Dresden. TEDx is the local TED program that brings people from their local community together. TEDxDresden is organized by a group of young students, researchers and professionals who are passionate about ideas worth spreading.
