TEDxSapporo 2016

TED was established in the U.S. in 1984, to deliver “Ideas Worth Spreading” around the world.
Since 2009, TEDx (x = independently organized TED event) held in various places has reached 16,000 events, including 219 events in Japan.
TEDxSapporo started in 2012, and this will be our fourth conference.
Don’t miss this opportunity to discover new ideas through the speeches of our 7 new speakers, and discussions with the past and present distinguished HEROES through other activities at the venue.

Conference Theme

This year our theme is “Relay your story”.
We all have our “thoughts”.
When we try to share our “thoughts”, many stories are born.
Let’s share a full day of new ideas and think about “Relay your story”.
