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

Ideas worth sharing. For sure. Some funny, some sad, some took a completely different direction that I thought they would. The time flew by!

I loved the event! It was affordable and such a great experience. I think more people should know about and participate in TEDxIdahoFalls events.

All of the speakers were very well prepared, and presented fascinating material in a compelling way.

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

I love learning from people’s experiences! Very uplifting and hopeful 🙂

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.

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

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the presentations. There was a great variety of topics.

This was my first time attending a TEDx event and it exceeded all expectations. Hearing the different speakers and ideas were refreshing and eye opening. I can’t wait for next year.

My husband and I love Ted talks, and we were not disappointed by the TEDx event in Idaho Falls. I believe one of the main purposes to any TED talk is to encourage a conversation and share information about new topics, ideas, and solutions. We spent the rest of our evening talking about the subjects that were talked about with friends, family, and each other.
