About TEDxAsburyPark

TEDxAsburyPark is an annual Jersey Shore-based conference dedicated to community, education, and innovation. In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, live speakers spark deep discussion and connections through their stories. The goal of TEDxAsburyPark is to bring world-leading TEDx talks to the Jersey Shore in an all-day event that inspires us to learn and think about the future of our home at the Shore.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
