TEDx Lahore, where x=independently organised TED event. At TEDx Lahore event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including this, are self-organised.
Tedx Lahore is planned on 31st July 2010. Lahore is in the cultural heartland of Pakistan and is an ideal location for a conference to promote technology, culture and education under the banner of collective genius.
The list of speakers boasts technologists, entrepreneurs, artists and social workers. They are all united by a passion for bringing tangible change and sharing their ideas with the world.
The select audience of 400 will be selected out of applicants here. Thousands of others are expected to join in by viewing the live broadcast from home or at select viewing parties planned around the city. Several films and performances will be part of the show.
The team of volunteers has dedicated itself to ensure that the event is a huge hit. It is guaranteed to create awareness about some of the great work Pakistanis are doing and make rich contributions to the library at TED.com
