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

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

I enjoy listening to the speakers and the ideas presented. One would not necessarily know about the ideas, experiences and life lessons that we share with each other without forums such as TED. I am grateful to all those who take the time in their busy lives to organize and present TEDx Idaho Falls. I recommend this to all who ask about TED. Thank all of you for your hard work and dedication!

This event was the most influential and confidence building TEDx I’ve attended. Many of the speeches helped me and made me feel better about myself.

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

The TEDxIdahoFalls talks were great and it’s so nice to hear unique ideas about improving our communities and our lives!

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

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

I enjoyed every bit of the experience. TEDx Idaho Falls brought light and wisdom into my life and uplifted me personally. I would recommend it highly to anyone.

Everyone should be exposed to a wide variety of thoughts and perspectives and TEDxIdahoFalls is a great way to do just that.

The Tedx talks open up your mind which allows you approach the world from a different perspective.
