About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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 TEDxCambridge, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
TEDxCambridge showcases exceptional ideas and artists that help contribute towards our shared future, positively influencing lives, and helping transform our global community. We produce one of the longest-running and largest independently organized TED events in the world.
