While we appreciate any coverage, we kindly ask that all journalists and/or bloggers be respectful of the difference between the TED and TEDx brands.
The ‘x’ in ‘TEDx’ stands for “independently organized events.” Any headline or text which implies “TED” is coming to San Antonio is misleading. For more information on TEDx, see below or visit http://www.ted.com/tedx

The TEDx program allows us to showcase the ingenuity and energy of San Antonio, and to explore themes and issues that resonate here – such as arts, education, urban development, technology, environment, healthcare, military and multi-culturalism.
World-changing conversations about the most innovative, creative, intriguing, and sometimes disruptive, ideas alive in our city on the rise.
About TEDx, X = Independently Organized EventTED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience, and help share ideas in communities around the world.
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. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
About TEDTED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; the annual million-dollar TED Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a “wish,” or idea, to create change in the world; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
About TEDxSanAntonioTEDxSanAntonio inspires participants from all parts of the city and Central/South Texas to forge new connections, begin important dialogs, initiate big changes and continue the conversations beyond the event.
Our all-volunteer organization is licensed by TED to hold San Antonio’s full-fledged TEDx event, and we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Last year over 700 participated in the live TEDxSanAntonio event, and hundreds more in countries around the globe watched online via live stream or YouTube, showcasing our region’s unique culture, innovation and creativity to the worldwide TEDx community.
