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

I left inspired by people grown in the same soil as I.

I think the topics are timely, sometimes surprising in what they impart, and over all very interesting, entertaining and informative. Good job everyone! Wish I had the ability to give a talk.

Well organized, great mix of topics and speakers. Fun, engaging event.

The event was very well organized, with exceptional speakers!

It was great experience with lots of fun information and ways to change your life!

The entire experience was great. It was well put together and the speakers were amazing. A++++

I love the idea that I can find apolitical and areligious discussions on our society. The speakers were excellent and their ideas were definitely worth sharing.

I love the event. It always motivates and inspires me. I have been coming to the Idaho Falls event since it began 5 years ago, and plan to continue coming each year.

It was awesome! I loved the presentations, and it is a good length for the event. Overall, it’s pretty fantastic.

It was so inspiring! I will definitely go again.
