We Are Actively Preparing For Our 2020 Event!

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

Honestly it was an absolutely incredible experience. I loved every minute, even when I was stressed out and terrified, I knew it was such a cool part of life that I’d never regret. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity.

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

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

Every speaker had a message for me. I enjoyed it very much! Thank you.

The event was very well organized, with exceptional speakers!

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 always need encouragement and inspiration in my journey to become a better human being. I found both at this event.

I am inspired by the talks and always learn something new. I went last year and took a friend with me this year.

TEDxIdahoFalls was an amazing experience! It was my first in-person experience with TED and I loved it. I will hopefully be back next year!

The speakers were interesting and varied. The event was top notch!
