Are you willing to question what you’re capable of? Ready for a challenge that will break you out of where you are today? We are. We’ve spent a decade bringing you big ideas and transformative thinking, but now we’re ready to up our game, and you’re invited! 

What are some ways you could unlock new possibilities and level up in your life, right now? 

Join us for TEDxYYC 2020 on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium and let’s find out – together! 

Watch this space as we’ll be rolling out announcements on speakers, performers, and ticket sales over the next few weeks.

Be sure to follow our social media channels as well (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn) for live updates! 


This year, we want to bring you more. We want YOU to want more – for yourself, for your communities, and how you bring your talents to the world. There’s a better version of all of us out there, and until now it’s been just beyond our grasp. 

This year, we’re all reaching for it, together. It’s time to LEVEL UP.

What does it mean to level up in an ever polarizing world? We’ll explore how challenging and necessary growth can be. Who are the speakers who might change your perspective, and who have the ideas to inspire and challenge you? We’ll bring you ideas to break right through your assumptions and show you possibilities instead.

Why are ideas so important? Ideas can help us become better versions of ourselves. They shape our society, our workplaces, our families, and our communities. They help us see beyond our current reality, break down obstacles we once saw as limits, and show us what we can become when we strive for more. 

Don’t miss the chance to experience TEDxYYC live on Saturday, June 6, 2020! We’re taking TEDxYYC to the next level, and we want you with us. 

As Calgary’s largest and most well-attended independently-organized TED event, we’re confident our 11th event will continue our legacy of excellence and inspiration in the areas of Technology, Entertainment, and Design. With an ongoing mission to bring like-minded individuals together to create, collaborate, and innovate at the highest level, TEDxYYC will inspire you to shape your future in new ways.

Join us at TEDxYYC 2020!
