The TEDSummit is expected to bring together up to 1,300 members of the international TED community.

TED is a non-profit organisation devoted to identifying, and then spreading, relevant and potentially impactful ideas. TEDSummit gathers the most engaged members of the global TED community for community brainstorms, discussions, performances, workshops, outdoor activities and an eclectic programme of mainstage talks.Many people see TED through a lens of talks and content. 



Every few years, TEDSummit gathers over 1000 members of that global community for five days of brainstorms, performances, workshops, outdoor activities, future-focused discussions and an eclectic program of mainstage TED Talks. 

Three years after the first event in Banff, Canada, TEDSummit 2019 will gather that community beyond borders in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Registration will be opening soon.
