Join us this Wednesday for the introduction of TED and TEDx to Loughborough with our first event showing an exclusive live webcast of the TEDGlobal 2012 conference in Edinburgh.

You're welcome to bring your laptops and iPads along to work on throughout the day while we watch the live show.

We'll be using the day as a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable experience in the running of a full day at a TED Conference which we will use as a benchmark for the organisation of our "TEDxLoughborough" events in the future.
