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

Speeches Helped Me Feel Better

This event was the most influential and confidence building TEDx I

Amazing

It was seriously amazing. They put together a great group of speakers and an evening that was truly memorable and meaningful.

Uplifting Experience

The conference was a great uplifting experience. The speakers were fantastic and very well prepared!!

Real People, Real Experiences

I loved it! I’ll be back, for sure! Real people sharing real experiences! Awesome!

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!

Life Changing

Two of the talks have had a major, life changing impact on me. My husband and daughter attended with me and we continue to talk about the messages to keep it in our minds.

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.

I’m Uplifted

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.

Thought Provoking

It was an interesting and thought provoking experience that was well executed by the organizers.

New Ideas

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