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.

This was an awesome experience! Speakers were wonderful and I can’t wait to go again.

I have attended TEDx Idaho Falls on two separate occasions and each time I do, I leave feeling thoroughly enlightened. There is no better feeling! Any and all who feel the same way I do about learning ought to attend.

It was an amazing experience. I felt that everything was well organized and the speakers were wonderful. I will be going back next year and bringing anybody with me that I can.

It was an amazing show and all of the speakers were great! Very insightful!

It was a very uplifting evening that everyone needs once in a while.

This event exceeded my expectations. I love listening to Ted talks via the podcast app. I wasn’t expecting the local event to have as high of calibre speakers and topics as national talks, but I was wrong. I left the event feeling inspired and better informed.

I absolutely loved attending TEDxIdahoFalls. The speakers all inspired me to have meaningful conversations after the event, and to think a bit more about each topic. I was never bored with any topic and the entire evening flew by. Great job, and great flow! Thanks.

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.

It was a thought-provoking and engaging afternoon. Many topics and ideas were presented and it allowed people to connect and communicate with one another. The world needs more TedX in their lives.
