TEDxGlasgow is a not-for-profit organisation and our events would not be possible without the support of volunteers, performers, partners, speakers and of course, the attendees.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGlasgow, where x = independently organized TED event.

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
