Kia ora and welcome to TEDxTauranga

We believe that TEDxTauranga is an essential part of Tauranga’s event calendar.

Did you know that all of the volunteers are unpaid and it take us 10-12 months to produce just one exciting day. Collectively the team donates over 10,000 hours to give you the opportunity to participate in a day of discovery.

Join us in the audience, sponsor our event, pitch your idea worth spreading to us and encourage others to watch TED Talks online. However you want to help, thank you for engaging.
