    Birth of the Concept

    TED is a non-profit organization devoted to ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’. The first TED conference was held in 1984, and since then has brought together people from the domains ‘Technology’, ‘Entertainment’ and ‘Design’ to share their experiences and ideas.

  • 2004

    Spreading the culture

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED created a program called TEDx. A platform to bring together people to share a TED-like experience, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events. Thus the significance of X, which stands for independently organized TED event.
