In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDxSMIT, where x = independently organized TED event, is a self-organized conference that brings people together to share a TED like experience.


With the passionate belief in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world, we want to build a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the most inspired thinkers and a community of curious souls that engage with ideas. With the intent of spreading thoughts, we proudly announce the 2nd edition of TEDxSMIT.


The beautifully landscaped campus of Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology at the banks of the hustling Teesta River in the Himalayan region of India will host the event and will serve the occasion to inaugurate the newly constructed Hall in the campus.
