Due to restrictions and challenges in general with the COVID-19 Pandemic, there will not be an event planned for the 2021 year. We welcome you to revisit some of the videos of awesome talks from previous years.

About TEDxIdahoFalls

TEDxIdahoFalls is an all-volunteer staffed, non-profit organization. Our event relies on the sponsorship of partners and general admission sales. Your ticket purchase helps cover hard costs such as the venue, printing, advertising, and helps us continue to bring enriched dialogue to the Eastern Idaho, Exposing, Exploring and Expanding the minds of our community.

TEDxIdahoFalls is proud of our 53 passionate speakers since our first event in 2014, with over 1,800 people attending our live events, nearly 4 million viewers online, and the dedicated group of volunteers that make it happen every year. We look forward to continue to share Idaho Falls’ ideas worth spreading.

What is 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 TEDxIdahoFalls, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxIdahoFalls 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.

Past Attendee Testimonials

Timely Topics

The speakers were passionate and the topics were timely for our day.

This Is A Win

The event is very interesting, very intriguing, and is extremely worthwhile. I found the event to be entertaining and to provoke thought. In my book, this is a win!

Great Speakers

Great speakers! Great variety of topics! I liked how local everything was.

I Couldn’t Believe It Was Over

I originally questioned my commitment when I discovered that it was going to be a 4 hour endeavor, but when it ended I couldn’t believe it was already over. I felt very enlightened and thought they put on a great show.

Inspiring And Insightful

I began the event not sure if I’d stay the full 5 hours. I stayed the whole time and it flew by. Every talk was inspiring and insightful. I’ll be back with my wife and others next year. Sign me up!

Larger World View

It’s excellent to hear from topics I might not otherwise know much about, or viewpoints that might be slightly different from my “assumptions” looking from the outside. I think it’s important for my teenagers to be at these, because I need them to have a larger world view than they might have growing up in a “smallish” city.

Uplifting Experience

The conference was a great uplifting experience. The speakers were fantastic and very well prepared!!

VIP Treatment

I loved how inspiring and organized this event was. I felt like a VIP.

Speeches Helped Me Feel Better

This event was the most influential and confidence building TEDx I

A Breath Of Fresh Air

Because it is a fabulous event, one of the very best in Idaho Falls. Extremely well organized, the talks are super well rehearsed, and the ideas innovative. A breath of fresh air for me.
