x = independently organised event

About TEDxLeicester

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. 

At a TEDx event speakers present ideas to spark deep discussions and connections.

These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. 

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised. (Subject to certain rules and regulations).

TEDx Leicester is an entirely not-for-profit and volunteer-led initiative, organised by local people with a passion for sharing great ideas & what the TEDx movement can do to help drive and sustain improvements for people and places. 

TEDx licences are issued to organisers of events in towns and cities around the world; like TEDx Leicester, all of them must be not-for-profit to comply with TEDx rules and regulations.
