TEDxYYC 2019 celebrates ten years of ideas worth spreading with this year’s theme:  You Are Here

TEDxYYC 2019 will celebrate ten years of ideas worth spreading right here in our city and look forward to the impact we’ll have in the years to come. Who will take the stage to share new ideas in 2019? What will it feel like to be part of that energy, and where will these new ideas take us? There’s only one way to find out!

The event theme this year is:  You Are Here.

You’ve made it here, but where are you? Context is everything, and we’re all just trying to figure out what “here” really means. Establishing where we’ve come from, and where we are now, will be what launches us into the future.

We’ll bring you passionate speakers ready to take the stage to create powerful energy together with deep discussion and intimate connection. TEDxYYC strives to bring the best and brilliant to Calgary, fueling those who gather to push boundaries of their own.

What have we accomplished together so far? Most importantly, where are we going next? It’s time to find out, together.

Don’t miss the chance to experience TEDxYYC 2019 live!

As Calgary’s largest independently-organized TED event, our tenth annual event will continue our legacy of excellence and inspiration in the areas of Technology, Entertainment, and Design.
