TEDxBeirut is a full-day conference featuring 21 speakers and performers; curated from thought leaders in the Middle East and abroad, as well as grassroots speakers sharing their inspiring stories.
The presenters lineup will take you on a journey of inspiration; the event will bring visionaries, innovators, problem solvers, doers, funders, connectors and their community into one space.
The result would help spark collaborations, ignite conversations and instill positive change within us all. This is our dream for TEDxBeirut -and we want you to be part of it.

Previous TEDxBeirut events

Understanding the challenge of adapting a foreign concept to local culture, and in an effort to build momentum towards the full-day TEDxBeirut conference, TEDxBeirut hosted 3 two-hour salons to both spread the “TED spirit” and engage with a growing Lebanese TED community.
The 1st Salon gathered 160 attendees and the number more than doubled in time for the 3rd salon with 390 guests.
TED videos were screened at the TEDxBeirutSalons and interactive discussion were held with the attending audiences.

TEDxBeirut theme: “From Limitation to Inspiration”

The content of TEDxBeirut is what makes or breaks the event. Choosing a general theme, then trying to mold the talks into that theme was not an option.
TEDxBeirut opted for curating speakers with top content, then uncovering the overall theme, one that is proper to Lebanon and the Middle East in particular.
With that in mind, the TEDxBeirut speakers and community shined the spotlight on this year’s most potent theme and trend, both locally and regionally...
