What is TED?

TED is an annual event where the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share their passions. “TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design – three broad subject areas that are shaping our future.


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event.


Started in 2010 and hosted on the UC Berkeley campus, TEDxBerkeley is one of the largest TEDx events in the world, featuring over 1200 attendees every year. TEDxBerkeley is organized by members of the Regents’ and Chancellor’s Scholars Association, the recipients of the highest university honor awarded to undergraduate students.

How are attendees selected?
