The main difference between TED and TEDx is that TEDx is focused on a local, geographic area. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
What exactly is a TED talk?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.
What makes a TED talk different?
TED style talks are delivered without notes and the speaker wears a lapel or headset microphone and is never behind a lectern. TED style presentations have minimal or even no slides. TED style talks are personal, about a topic the speaker is knowledgeable about and feels deeply passionate about.

Why is a TED talk 18 minutes?
A TED Talk is 18 minutes long—a length that was chosen by TED organizers based both on neuroscience and strategy. They understood that 18 minutes was long enough for a speaker to flesh out an idea, but short enough that a listener could take in, digest, and understand all of the important information.
