An Invitation to TEDxFukuoka2014


Hello everyone.

We would like to introduce our next event, TEDxFukuoka2014.

What is TED?

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design.

What is TEDx Fukuoka?
The TEDx program gives communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently. We started TEDxFukuoka last year. This TEDxFukuoka2014 is our second event.
