TEDx

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 TEDxBedminster, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBedminster event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

TEDx is a volunteer endeavor. Organizers do not use their events to make money. We may not use your event to raise funds for charities or other organizations. All funds raised must go back into the organizing of the TEDx event. This event is a labor of love, we love sharing ideas and connect awesome and interesting folks.

1425 Route 206 South, Bedminster Township, New Jersey, 09721 – Cegedim, North America Headquarters, Building One.
