Previous Events

TEDxGöteborg organizes two types of events: Main Events and Salon Events. At both, we encourage everyone to speak with at least one new person.

Our talks – streamed and live – are a source of inspiration, but the interaction with your fellow spectators is equally important.

Who knows what ideas might come to life with the help of a little interaction with a stranger?

Main Events

A TEDxGöteborg Main Event is usually a full day packed with live speakers ranging from your next-door neighbour to world-famous scientists, performances, guided sessions to discuss ideas and make new acquaintances, streamed TED talks, meetings with our partners, and many other surprises.

Disrupting Status Quo

In 2019, our Main Event theme was "Disrupting Status Quo". Here we got a closer insight into people and organizations that have done things differently from what society has been telling us is the right way to do things.

Salon Events

At a TEDxGöteborg Salon Event, a dynamic group of panelists and moderator will tackle the most pressing issue of the day. These events are free for anyone to join, with lively audience interaction a must! For added perspective, we may even beam-in a global TED Talk or two.

What the TECH?!

In 2021, TEDxGöteborg hosted "What the TECH?!". This TEDx Salon Event presented a series of talks on the future and innovations of technology.
