What is a Tedx Event?

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPanchgani where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPanchgani event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion, inspiration, and connection in a small and select group.

Is a Tedx event intended to promote the speaker?

No, Tedx events are a platform for speakers who are experts in their fields to share ideas based on their past experiences and/or future plans.  However the speakers follow a strict guideline set by TED ensuring that their talks cannot be about SELF PROMOTION.

How long is the “Talk” for?

Talks cannot be longer than 18 minutes (this is a mandatory guideline that we have to follow, set by TED), but each speaker may speak for as little or as long as they want, which might vary from 5-18 minutes.

You are entitled to attend all talks (3 sessions) which are scheduled from 9:00am to 5:00pm, and the ticket also includes a goody bag, tea and snacks and buffet lunch. There will be some thought-provoking interactive sessions and interesting displays at the venue.

Can I attend only selective sessions?

Yes, but we recommend that you attend all sessions, as we don’t want to disturb speakers once a session starts. You might not be able to enter a session once it starts, so we recommend that you arrive early so that you don’t miss listing to your favorite speaker.
