TEDxUIdaho gathers leading thinkers, makers, and artists to share their ideas that create real change in Idaho and around the world. TEDxUIdaho is dedicated to producing events that feature stimulating presentations, discussions, entertainment, and art that spark new ideas and opportunities.

TEDxUIdaho speakers are chosen through a highly curated process that takes into consideration ideas, speaker styles, and the flow the day. The speaker selection committee works with the speakers to prepare and develop their talks, each of which will be from 3 to 18 minutes long.

We feature speakers from both the state of Idaho and from around the world who want to spread their unique ideas through TEDxUIdaho. Speakers must be available all day on the day of the event to attend the event and after party, and during the evening before for rehearsals. Travel and lodging costs are the responsibility of the speaker, unless otherwise agreed to in advance. You can read more about speaking at a TEDx event in the TEDx Speaker Guide.

After you have submitted your registration form, you will be contacted if the team would like to schedule an interview. We receive over a hundred applications for the event so we don’t respond to each application personally. Applications will close on December 31th when we have selected our speaker line up for our 2017 event.

Thank you for your interest in speaking at our event. Please complete the registration application below.
