Great ideas emerge all around us, all the time.

What types of ideas make for a good Talk at TEDxPlano? We’re looking for ideas:

  • are local to the Plano or North Texas region.
  • on any topic or subject matter.
  • that can be realized in some way.
  • that conform to TED’s content rules.
  • that demonstrate original thinking.

We primarily focus on speakers who are local to the Plano or North Texas region.

Submissions are accepted year-round via our application process. Please do not email directly inquiring speaking opportunities.

Speakers are selected approximately three to five months before the upcoming TEDxPlano event.

Our curatorial team receives hundreds of ideas every year, so we do not reply to submissions or inquiries about submission status. Selected speakers will be contacted directly. Submitting an idea does not guarantee selection as a TEDxPlano speaker.

Ready to submit your idea? We’re listening.
