Apply for a TEDx license
Choose the type of TEDx event you would like to organize by clicking one of the buttons in the list below. (You'll then head on to the main application form.) Note that each event type in this list is subject to a separate set of rules, guidelines and applicable dates.
Before applying please make sure to:
Things to remember
- Spirit/purpose: Your event must maintain the spirit of TED itself: multidisciplinary, focused on the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. TEDx events are not agenda or single-topic driven.
- Co-branding: We do not allow co-branding -- either connecting the TEDx logo/identity/name to the name of another organization, non-profit, corporation or other, or presenting your TEDx event as being organized by such entities.
- Location: TED allocates one location-based license series per applicant; you must live in the city for which you are applying for a license. Your TEDx event must happen in the city for which you received the license. TEDx events do not travel -- a TEDx license is valid for one city, and for one event.
- Co-events: TEDx events are stand-alone events -- they may not be combined with or integrated into any pre-existing conference or event.
