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

This is social media at its best. Some people want to hear about issues they may never have thought about straight from the “horse’s mouth” and it engages them without feeling pressured.

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.

I love all the ideas….. I want more.

I love hearing from the different speakers and learning new things from them.

It gets better every year. The speakers are engaging and interesting, and the topics though provoking. That it is held right here, for such a modest price, is fantastic.

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

The event was spectacular. Everyone was enthralled by the speakers. We left on an intellectual high.

TEDxIdahoFalls is great — we heard a lot of interesting people talk about their passion — we’ve already told several people they should attend next year.

I had such a great time at this thought provoking event! I wish I would have gone to the prior 3 years. The event was well organized and moved quickly. All the talks were great and I took something away from each one. I definitely felt inspired when I left the event!

I thought it was interesting and entertaining! It was a great event!
