"We shouldn't wait for some revolutionary ideas to pop into our heads.
Innovative ideas are all around us." Bill Gates
In 2013 , the TEDxABQ experience came to Popejoy Hall and something truly special happened. Over 2,000 people gathered for a showcase of New Mexico’s biggest ideas and most fascinating thinkers. Following TEDxABQ’s 2013 and 2014 events , New Mexicans have continued the conversations and put ideas into actions that are improving our community.

What is TED?
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design – three areas that are collectively shaping our future.
TED is an annual event where the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share their passions.
This year, the event will highlight 20 remarkable homegrown ideas from New Mexico’s most passionate scientists, artists, activists, educators, healthcare advocates, and community members . TEDxABQ is about celebrating what is great about New Mexico. Created in the spirit of TED’s mission, ideas worth spreading, TEDxABQ events are designed to give New Mexico’s communities, organizations, and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through locally organized TED -like experiences.
