An evolving events landscape

Like every other events-based organization, we're back into more COVID restrictions as of today.

That's a frustrating experience, especially since we were just getting set to resume some limited in-person events next week, with our forthcoming TEDxCalgaryLive event on September 21st. Right now, we're working with our event venue hosts and public health authorities to understand more about the new restrictions, and what options we have to carry out or modify our existing plans.

For anyone who has registered for an in-person event option, please stay tuned... we will have updates as soon as we can. If you're wanting to be part of the event, but are concerned about the new restrictions, please know that you can always participate using our virtual platform, which includes the capability for vibrant discussions with other participants!

F.A.Q. Things you need & want to know

How do I register for an event?

When we have an active event (either in-person or virtual), registration links will be provided in our Events section. Given current COVID restrictions, we have not been offering in-person events, but are hoping to resume this as soon as possible.

When do you announce all the speakers?

Speakers for upcoming events are usually announced about 4 weeks in advance of the event. Please note that all events are "as is", and we cannot guarantee that a particular speaker is able to appear.

What goes on at a TEDxCalgary event?

Compared to watching an individual TED or TEDx talk online, a TEDxCalgary event is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a full day of ideas and conversations with others who are equally curious about the world around them. In addition to the amazing speakers and performers we profile on stage, all of our participants at the event contribute to the awesomeness of the day through their interactions with one another, and with our interactions partners in the venue. As part of your ticket, we provide refreshment and meal breaks throughout the day to nourish the body as well as the mind! Read our What to Expect article for more information on how to make the most of the event!

What is your affiliation with TED?

We are an independently organized TEDx event, operating under licence from TED. We do not speak for the TED organization, and our event is required to conform with a number of TEDx licencing provisions. Please seethe TEDx site for more information .

Are there other TEDx organizing teams in Calgary?

Yes! We're fortunate to have several other TEDx licencees in the city, including our colleagues atTEDxYYC who also started operating in 2009. There also are TEDxYouth@Victoria Park, TEDxRundleAcademy, and TEDxBowValleyCollege (invitation only). Each TEDx team brings a different approach to organizing their event, while conforming to the general TEDx licencing rules.

Can I nominate a speaker?

Yes! We accept nominations year-round, versus on an event basis. Please see our Become a Speaker page for general information on how to nominate someone to be a speaker.
