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

Inspired

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

I Love Learning New Things

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

I Recommend This To All

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!

Great Event

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

Encouragement And Inspiration

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

We Left On A High

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

Can’t Wait To Go Again

This was an awesome experience! Speakers were wonderful and I can’t wait to go again.

A Boost Of Goodness

It was great! Speakers were all motivational. I really enjoyed being in a big room with people who were also looking for a boost of goodness.

An Amazing Idea

I think Tedx is an amazing idea in and of itself! People are becoming more aware of another way of life, and without all of us being able to share our words, we may not understand how to try these new ways in our lives. It

Social Media At Its Best

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.
