Anyone who qualifies and gets licensed can host a TEDx event, which is a TED-like event with live speakers from the local community and/or a video showing of an actual TED Talk videos. Local TEDx can be held for not longer than 1 day and the event should be named after the location of the event such as the name of the city, neighborhood or street. The name of the local TEDx event is subject to the guidelines laid out by TED.
The purpose of TEDx events should adhere to the spirit of TED, which is focused on the power of ideas to make people think and become a catalyst for change. Local TEDx events should not have any other agenda or be driven towards a single topic. If an organizer aims to host more than 100 individuals, the organizer must have attended at least one official TED conference.
