Year 10

May 28, 2022

After three reschedules and 1,164 days of planning - Year 10 is happening. Join us for the most inspirational, educational day of the year in Portland at the Moda Center / Theater of the Clouds - this will be the largest indoor TEDx event in the world. Our theme continues to be AUDACIOUS - it still holds after 3+ years of time. It is even more relevant now considering what we all have persevered through and the scale of this event. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. We are going ALL IN on the “E is for Entertainment” delivering value in our 10th Anniversary like never before. The full one-day event will feature 15 TED Talks, highlighted by 6 incredible performances.
