TEDx is an independently organized event.
TEDx, a self-organized program, is a local event that brings people together for a TED experience. TEDTalks videos and live speakers are combined at TEDx events to create a deep connection and discussion in a small group. These self-organized local events are branded TEDx. x = independently organised TED event. TED Conference gives general guidelines for the TEDx Program, but each TEDx event is self-organized. * (*Subjected to certain rules and regulations).
