Registrations Open for the TED Event in Rio

TED, a not-for-profit organization known for the slogan “Ideas worth spreading,” will be holding the annual TEDGlobal conference – which has taken place in several countries like the United Kingdom and the United States – in Rio de Janeiro. Registrations for the event – on Copacabana Beach between October 6 and 10, 2014 – were opened on Wednesday, November 27.


Entitled “South!”, the conference will be a celebration of the outpouring of innovation, dynamism and creativity taking place throughout the Southern Hemisphere. There will be about 70 live talks.


The organizers say that Rio de Janeiro was chosen for several reasons, among which is the importance of Latin America for the global market. In addition, Brazilian leaders have been giving strong support to TEDGlobal 2014 in Rio and are committed to helping make it a great success.


The conference is being held in Latin America as part of the celebrations of TED’s 30th anniversary. Early this year, TED announced that its annual conference would be moved from Long Beach, in California, to Vancouver, Canada.
