About TEDxMileHigh

TEDxMileHigh presents talks and other programming through its in-person conferences and digital content as an avenue to promote education, dialogue, and stronger communities. We share content online that is available for free and focuses on the world’s biggest challenges. We’ve produced hundreds of events for 100,000 attendees. Our talks online have been viewed 140 million times through online channels. TEDxMileHigh is a nonprofit organization that is licensed by TED. 

TEDxMileHigh Adventures are events that take place outside of our main conferences.

TEDxMileHigh Exhibits complement the presenters at our conferences and consist of art installations, technology demonstrations, and creative attendee engagement opportunities. They provide hands-on exploration, conversation, and experience.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection.

These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
