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 TEDxManhattanBeach, where x = independently organized TED event.  At our TEDxManhattanBeach 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.

What is TEDxManhattanBeach?

Innovators, thinkers, and doers from the greater Manhattan Beach area of California dedicated to making our community a better place to live through an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization.
