F.A.Q. Things you need & want to know

How do I register for an event?

When do you announce all the speakers?

What goes on at a TEDxCalgary event?

Compared to watching an individual TED or TEDx talk online, a TEDxCalgary event is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a full day of ideas and conversations with others who are equally curious about the world around them. In addition to the amazing speakers and performers we profile on stage, all of our participants at the event contribute to the awesomeness of the day through their interactions with one another, and with our interactions partners in the venue. As part of your ticket, we provide refreshment and meal breaks throughout the day to nourish the body as well as the mind! Read our What to Expect article for more information on how to make the most of the event!

What is your affiliation with TED?

We are an independently organized TEDx event, operating under licence from TED. We do not speak for the TED organization, and our event is required to conform with a number of TEDx licencing provisions. Please see the TEDx site for more information .

Are there other TEDx organizing teams in Calgary?

Yes! We're fortunate to have several other TEDx licencees in the city, including our colleagues at TEDxYYC who also started operating in 2009. Each TEDx team brings a different approach to organizing their event, while conforming to the general TEDx licencing rules.

Can I nominate a speaker?

Our speaker nominations for the Navigators event in November 2018 are currently closed. We will resume after the event concludes, and we thank you for all your great nominations!
