TEDxABQ, one of the largest and oldest TEDx events in the world, is a movement of people who are stimulating dialogue and putting ideas into action to improve our community. YOU are that community, and we can’t wait to see you!
The event places New Mexico on the global stage and effects positive change by altering the way we think about our state locally, and by fostering a culture of entrepreneurship, where big ideas are embraced and then powered by passionate people like you, who give their time and energy to make them happen.
TEDxABQ, the independently organized, TED licensed conference has showcased New Mexico’s biggest ideas and most inspiring thinkers to packed audiences. Every year, a staff of 120+ passionate volunteers makes this event a reality. TEDxABQ 2014 highlights 18 remarkable ideas from NM’s most passionate artists, thinkers, innovators, leaders, and scientists among others. TEDxABQ talks from the 2013 event have been viewed over 700,000 times in locations across the globe.
