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

VIP Treatment

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

Invigorating

It was well done. It was invigorating. I would highly recommend it.

Larger World View

It’s excellent to hear from topics I might not otherwise know much about, or viewpoints that might be slightly different from my “assumptions” looking from the outside. I think it’s important for my teenagers to be at these, because I need them to have a larger world view than they might have growing up in a “smallish” city.

Enlightening Speakers

Enlightening speakers. Entertaining, informative, and thoughtful!

Inspiring And Insightful

I began the event not sure if I’d stay the full 5 hours. I stayed the whole time and it flew by. Every talk was inspiring and insightful. I’ll be back with my wife and others next year. Sign me up!

I’m Telling Everyone

I have already told everyone I

New Ideas

All talks result in some new ideas, new perspectives, or new information that evokes thought.

Absolutely Amazing

TEDx IF is absolutely amazing! You can feel true passion. Each year seems to get a bit better even though you totally can’t imagine that it could. The organizers are outstanding.

Refreshing And Eye-Opening

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.

Well Done

This event was very well done. Great speakers and well-organized. It was fantastic having an event like this in our community.
