November 3th will mark the day of the annual TEDxRotterdam Main Event, hosted in cooperation with De Doelen. TEDxRotterdam will present a line-up of strong and inspiring speakers who will share their ideas with you. 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 TEDxRotterdam, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxRotterdam 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.
