Countdown to TEDxSanDiego 2015


October 17, 2015 – Symphony Hall

Registration for TEDxSanDiego 2015 is now open. We have assembled a fabulous lineup of speakers who will explore our theme of 20/20 Vision, and we’ll be blocking off B Street in front of Symphony Towers to make a unique space called Innovation Alley, with 20 of San Diego’s coolest and most innovative companies.

New option this year – sponsor a student – during registration you will have the option to sponsor a high school student. TEDxSanDiego is all about Ideas Worth Spreading, and we want to include some students in Symphony Hall who cannot afford to do so on their own.

What Attendees Say About TEDxSanDiego

The entire experience was professional from start to finish, from the registration desk to the seating to the experiences and, of course, especially the talks!

While all the speakers and experiences were awesome in showing how the world is using technology, entertainment, and design to further advance the world, bring healing, and inspire each other, it was really the community that was the most inspirational for me.

I was inspired and moved and began to care for myself in small ways after last year’s event. Because of those changes, I know I have been better able to contribute to the world, whether my work or my family or other activities.

What is TEDx

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSanDiego, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSanDiego event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
