TEDx Overview

TEDx expands TED beyond its annual conference by seeding smaller, independent events throughout the nation, called TEDx. TEDxAkron emulates the spirit and ideals of the TED Conference. You can see some of the game changing TEDtalks on TED.com.

What started as an annual event has bloomed into a global movement.

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 TEDxAkron, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxAkron event, 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.
