Vancouver TED Conference

The 2022 TED Conference takes place in Vancouver on April 10th to 14th and free live streaming of the event takes place at various libraries across the region.

To attend the actual conference in person costs thousands of dollars. The event is recorded though so you can watch at a later date from the comfort of your home. Alternatively, you can watch via live streaming from a variety of public venues.

Below we list times and locations for venues in Vancouver, North Vancouver and West Vancouver in 2022. Schools and libraries in other parts of town likely offer free screenings of the event too.

Other TED and TEDx Opportunities

In addition to the annual world TED Conference, there are also smaller and more affordable local TEDx conferences at different times of the year in Vancouver. TEDx events are similar to the international TED Conference, but smaller, far less expensive and lasting a single day instead of several.
