TEDxDerby is a half-day conference taking place on 21st May 2016. It is an independently run not-for-profit event and is operated under a license granted by TED. The theme of the 2016 TEDxDerby event is Journeys. This has been chosen to tie in with Derby’s city-wide cultural theme of 2016.

TEDxDerby is an event that brings together new and innovative ideas from speakers predominantly based in, or connected, to Derby and its surrounding areas. Derby has gone through incredible cultural, economical and technological changes over the past decade and we want to celebrate how great the city is.

We’re busy planning the event so sign up to our mailing list and keep an eye on our blog and Twitter for news as it unfolds.
