About TEDxLive

TEDxLive is an extension of the TEDx program, launched by TED in 2010. TEDxLive events are TEDx events built around the live webcast of TED Conferences. TEDxLive events enable TED enthusiasts all over the world to experience live sessions of the TED Conference; events can be simple viewing events, and may also host live speakers.

In the spirit of "ideas worth spreading," TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDxLive is a new extension of the TEDx program. TEDxLive events are twice a year TEDx events built around the live webstream of the TED Conference. Instead of featuring local speakers and pre-recorded TEDTalks videos, TEDxLive events enable TED enthusiasts all over the world to experience all 12 sessions of the TED Conference. In addition to the live webstream, TEDxLive event may contain local speakers and performers.

Our event is called TEDxSkolkovoLive, where x = independently organized TED event. As a TEDxSkolkovoLive, our attendees will experience the TED Conference, live via webcast. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDxLive program, but individual TEDxLive events, including ours, are self-organized.
