where do we go from here

Apply to Attend


Applications are now closed.

Thank you so much to all who applied to attend TEDxHouston 2011.
We received so many amazing, inspirational responses and we're looking forward to seeing you at the event!

*** With such an overwhelming response, invitations for applicants to attend will continue to be released until June 5th.

If you didn't get a chance to apply this year, don't worry! The event will be livestreamed and the videos will be available online in the weeks following.


One of the keys to a successful TEDx is an interesting, diverse audience. We’re looking for people from various backgrounds – the arts, technology, science, government, business, non-profits etc. that are passionate, open-minded “do’ers”.

Why is the audience curated? This is an often asked and very good question... you'll find a great summary behind TED's audience curation reasoning here. Like TED, our TEDxHouston speakers aren't paid ... one reason they attend is for the passionate audience. We hope our audience is as equally excited about the guests around them as they are about the speakers.
