About TEDxMiami
In the spirit of "ideas worth spreading," TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. 

Our event is called TEDxMiami, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxMiami, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. For more information, visit and follow @TEDxMiami on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
