TEDxUW is back for another year, with another set of individuals to showcase for an audience of 600 delegates! For 2018, an amazing line-up of “wave-making” speakers are being brought to the TEDxUW stage, in line with the chosen theme for this year, Making Waves. Making Waves stems from TEDxUW’s focus for this year, in wanting to shine the spotlight on individuals that have gone one step beyond coming up with a great idea, they’ve actively engaged to make their idea into a reality..

What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less.
What is TEDx? x=independently organized event
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. At a TEDx event, TED talk videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.)
When and where is TEDxUW happening?
TEDxUW will take place at Hagey Hall at the Unversity of Waterloo on Oct 13. 2018.
How can I attend TEDxUW?
We care about our audience just as much as we care about our speakers, we select 600 delegates for this conference. TEDxUW is looking for delegates who are passionate about all things TED and ideas worth spreading, individuals who are enthusiastic, driven, eager to meet individuals from various walks of life and eager to learn.
The application process consists of one simple application form with a couple of questions that you will need to answer. Applications are available here.
Why is there a fee to attend?
TEDxUW is a nonprofit organization. Our event is organized and run solely by a group of dedicated volunteers, and the money collected from ticket fees goes back to the conference to support costs for the venue, operations, food, and more. Charging a fee ensures TEDxUW programming to continue and expand to reach further audiences.
