TEDx Chiang Mai

TEDx Chiang Mai is an independently organised event that provides the locals with a platform for sharing ideas that are worth spreading, creativity, collaboration, and innovation.

Operated under license from the famous global non-profit platform, TED, the event features one major annual talk, as well as small activities and events that are held throughout the year.

TEDx Chiang Mai 2020, Dates, Speakers, Venue Address & Program Times

Each year, a particular theme is assigned to the talk which highlights an important social or environmental issue. The first event was held in 2011, and today they feature several speakers to an audience of over 1,000 attendees. TED’s local version is watched by over 80 million viewers and is entirely voluntary, non-commercial, and non-profit.

Visitors from other countries are welcome to attend; it’s not only fun and insightful, but also a terrific platform to meet wonderful people who live with purpose and impact. Brainstorm with like-minded people, and you may even find the ideal partner for implementing a social project that you’ve had in mind for a long time. Also if you don’t have any business ideas, why not come for the sheer inspiration it provides?

The major event of TEDx Chiang Mai is held for one full day each year. The performers and speakers from all around the world cover a wide variety of exciting topics; usually focussed around art, community, environment, education, industry, technology, university, cities, social impact, and of course, Chiang Mai. Each talk lasts around 12 to 14 minutes; although the longest talk lasts around 18 minutes.

The talks are held at various conference or convention centres each year, but if you’re in town, it’s highly recommended. Stimulating intellectual discussions and interesting topics continue to attract people to the growing event, which is now one of the most important and highly-anticipated events in Chiang Mai.
