  • Visitor Information

TED, a nonprofit organization devoted to 'Ideas Worth Spreading', has expanded hugely since it started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago. In the spirit of the original TED talks, TEDx are locally organsied events with talks made available, for free, online at TED.com. On 27th June 2014, TEDxHousesOfParliament takes place at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre. The line up and ticket prices haven't yet been announced but you can expect a diverse mix of high calibre speakers along the lines of last year's themes of representation and democracy.
