More information
TED is an annual event where some of the world’s greatest thinkers and entrepreneurs are invited to share what they love doing most. TED stands for ‘Technology, Entertainment and Design’, three major areas that, together, are shaping our future. In fact, this event makes it possible to deal with a broader range of subjects and ‘worthy ideas’ in other disciplines. TED conference attendees have dubbed it ‘the ultimate brain spa’ and ‘a four-day trip into the future’. With profiles including executives, scientists, creative directors and philanthropists, attendees are almost as extraordinary as the speakers themselves. Among the list of speakers are Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono. TED was first held in 1984 in Monterrey, California. In 2001, Chris Anderson's Sapling Foundation acquired TED from its founder, Richard Saul Wurman. In recent years, TED has expanded to host an international conference, TEDGlobal, and media initiatives including TED Talks, TED.com and the TED Prize. TED 2011, ‘The Rediscovery of Wonder’ will be held from 28th February to 4th March 2011 in Long Beach, California, with a simulcast offered in Palm Springs, California. TEDGlobal 2010, ‘And Now the Good News’, will be held in Oxford, United Kingdom from 12th to 16th July 2010.
With the aim of disseminating the most interesting ideas, TED has created a programme called TEDx. This is a series of local, independently organised conferences that enable viewers to enjoy the TED conference experience from anywhere around the world. Our events are called TEDxBarcelona, ​​where the x means ‘locally organised TED event’. TEDx events follow the general Ted guidelines, but are independently organised.
