How a TEDx Talk looks like

As a Speaker you get 18 minutes on our famous red carpet to present your vision, idea or thoughts on the TEDxLinz Stage.


Prior to the conference our curation team will work closely with you to prepare a presentation that will help you shine on stage. After the event your talk will be published on the TEDx YouTube channel with 40+ million subscribers and many more to watch and share.


We feel extremely lucky to get lots of great speaker applications. We want to give the best ideas the chance to get on stage, so this is your opportunity to grab our interest. As soon as we have received your application we will process it within the next weeks and get in touch with you.

It then looks like this

Martina Gaisch
Stepping onto the TEDx stage is a powerful mix of nerves and exhilaration. It's certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience that pushes you to the edge of your comfort zone but leaves you forever grateful for the opportunity to share your message with the world."

Are you eager to share your idea?

We welcome inspiring, authentic people from diverse backgrounds - professionals and non-professionals, scientists, artists, designers, architects, journalists, entrepreneurs, musicians, just to name a few. Our speakers and performers may be local or from anywhere on the globe, but they have one thing in common:

An idea worth spreading.

At TEDxLinz, we uphold the TED guiding principles:

Idea: How famous a person is, is irrelevant for our stage - the idea is the important thing·
Credibility: We deal with experts in their fields and fully rely on the accuracy of their talk content.

Topics: We do not support the spread of pseudoscience nor serve as a self-promotion/advertising platform.

Novelty: Presented ideas should be novel and ideally present a local idea which can be scaled globally.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxLinz, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxLinz event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
