About TEDx

At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. Learn more about TEDx.


TEDxPortofSpain provides the region with talks that inspire innovation, passion, co-creation, collaboration and cognitive expansion. TEDxPortofSpain attracts some of the region's most daring ideas, compelling talks, and is a community of people who dare to do great things.

How our community describes us

Sharing ideas is never a bad thing. The TEDxPortofSpain conference is an opportunity for personal and professional development. Attendees describe it as their annual recharge, a place to find your tribe and a place to meet some of the most forward-thinking people on the island.


A TEDx Salon is a small weekly or monthly recurring event that keeps a TEDx community engaged between larger annual events. At a TEDx Salon Event, attendees can watch TEDTalks and have discussions.
