Become a TEDxGöteborg Speaker

At TEDxGöteborg, we search year-round for speakers who will inform and inspire, surprise and delight. Our presenters run the world's most admired companies and design its best-loved products; they invent world-changing devices and create ground-breaking media. TEDxGöteborg also seeks out emerging artists, scientists and thinkers, introducing them to the TEDxGöteborg community well before they hit the mainstream.


If you know someone who belongs on the TEDxGöteborg stage, or if you belong there yourself, we want to hear from you! Please use our contact form.

Common Questions

Is there a deadline for suggesting a speaker?

We accept nominations all the time. It's best to get your suggestions to us as early as possible, so we can research them carefully and make the best decision on the speaker roster.


I want to speak at TEDxGöteborg, but my usual talk runs 50 minutes. Can I get a longer slot?

We strictly enforce the clock for all speakers. TEDxGöteborg is the place to condense your ideas into a compelling 18-minute talk that communicates your best ideas. We've found that a carefully prepared presentation of this length can have astonishing impact.

Do you have keynotes or panels?

At TEDxGöteborg, everyone hears every presentation; there are no breakout sessions or tracks, no keynotes, and very rarely are there panels (though we have had debates).


What do you pay speakers?

TEDxGöteborg does not pay speakers. Most speakers stay for the whole conference, soaking up the talks and connecting with other attendees. Benefits include pre-conference coaching and training, special events for networking, the gift bag, and a web archive of the full conference. We are committed to creating an experience that's tremendously fulfilling and beneficial on all sides.
