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

Fun Event

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

Uplifting And Hopeful

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

Priceless

Having the opportunity to see/listen to some of the most interesting and/or smart people in our community – priceless!

I Want My Friends And Family To Experience This

I loved it… I love hearing others ideas, especially when it can evoke emotion (mainly laughter). I want my friends and family to experience this… That is why I chose 10!

I Give It A 10

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.

Coming Back Next Year

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.

We Spent The Rest Of Our Evening Talking

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.

Good Job Everyone

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.

Ideas Worth Sharing

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

A+

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