    program of local, self-organized events that bring people together
    to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and
    live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a
    small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx,
    where x independently organized TED event. The TED Conference
    provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx
    events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and
    regulations).
