x=Independently Organized TED event

In the spirit of “sharing ideas that are worth spreading”, TED has launched localized TEDx events, spontaneously organized by volunteers. In these events, deep connection and communication between speakers and listeners are triggered by listening to live speech or watching TED videos together.TED will provide general guidelines for TEDx events.

By the end of April 2017, TEDx Program has spread over 170 countries and regions, and has held more than 20000 events. Other than standardized events, TEDx also holds events featured colleges, adolescents, children, enterprises, and females. From world’s most important cities: New York, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore, Taipei and Shanghai, to the great tycoons: Intel, Microsoft, Google, IBM and Tencent, and world-famous universities: Harvard, Cambridge, Stanford, Berkley, MIT, Tsinghua University, and Peking University, TEDx is connecting places from all over the world with its peculiar innovation, and exploring the future with the condensation of human intelligence.
