TEDxPortofSpain·14 · 10 · 15·Off Record

For 2015, TEDxPortofSpain we will bring ‘off stage’ conversations onto our stage with theme "Off Record".

"Off the record", is a figure of speech referring to conversations not intended to be shared publicly. They are the kinds of conversations that are often considered to be too "sensitive”. Conversations that we are too afraid to have or that we save for later. For 2015, we will celebrate our fifth anniversary with a daring theme - "Off Record".
