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 call TEDxSB, an x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSB 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.

It doesn't get any bigger than this. Davos is most well known for organizing the Annual Meetings in Davos, Switzerland in January and in the Peoples Republic of China in September every year where top decision-makers from all sectors of global society are brought together to discuss current and pressing issues in the most representative way.
The Technology Pioneers Community is one of the most widely recognized initiatives of the World Economic Forum. To be selected as a Technology Pioneer, a company must be involved in the development of technology innovation and have the potential for long-term impact on business and society. In addition, it must demonstrate visionary leadership, show the signs of being a long-standing market leader, and its technology must be proven.
Past recipients of this recognition include Google, Business Objects, Mozilla and Dr Reddys Laboratories, among others. When selected, Technology Pioneers attract worldwide media attention.
