x = independently organized event

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 TEDxRiga, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxRiga event, TEDTalks 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.

Our speakers

Stay tuned as we reveal the speaker lineup gradually


What can I expect at TEDxRiga?

You should plan the whole day to enjoy TEDxRiga. We will have 4 awesome sessions from 9 AM up until 6 PM. You’re free to leave and return to venue at any time, but please mind that entering the main hall is allowed in between the talks only.

Yes! We will not only provide food for thought, but also will take care of the actual food. Lunch meal will be provided at halftime, there will be snacks, coffee, tea, water available throughout the day.

While TEDxRiga tends to be about listening to the talks, we create a cool atmosphere around networking, meeting new people and sharing ideas in between the sessions. Various activities will be available, and the Wi-Fi too!

Absolutely! The speakers love networking as much as you do, and will be present during the day. You will also have a fantastic opportunity to meet some of the speakers from our previous four conferences.

There will be drinks served to conclude the event, so don’t leave early. The final networking session is the most fun!
