TEDxZurich: inspiring, innovative, surprising

The world-famous TED talks are also present in Zurich: Once a year, the audience of the TEDxZurich conference gets to know creative ideas and inspiring speakers. LGT supports this platform as a sponsor.

Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and Richard Branson. All of them have already given TED talks. Under the motto "Ideas worth spreading", gifted speakers and thinkers present their thoughts, ideas and findings in brief, inspring talks. Many of these are then available free of charge, and often spread rapidly across the internet.

Originally, "TED" stands for "Technology, Entertainment, Design". In contrast to the first conference in the US in 1984, however, the talks are not limited to these topics but include culture, art, politics and science. Today, local versions of TED conferences have spread all over the world.

At TEDxZurich, professors, CEOs, artists and creative minds walk out on the stage. They all have one common goal: to explain and disseminate their bright ideas and concepts for a better future during a short, inspiring presentation.
