About Us

About TED

TED is an annual event where the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share their passions. “TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design – three broad subject areas that are shaping our future.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x represents that the events are independently organized.


Meet the Organisers

Our team constitutes of 28 volunteers divided into 5 subteams, each with a particular role. What makes us special is that we are all from different backgrounds, and are able to connect and work with each other to organise our conferences.
