A TEDxWeekend is an international gathering of TEDx organizers focused on celebrating our community and fostering deep connection and collaboration between community members. 

In the past, incredible TEDxWeekends have happened in São Paulo, Singapore and Munich, Verona (find more), and now TED has chosen Lagos, the city of culture, art, fashion and delicious food, to host this year’s edition.

TEDxWeekend Lagos will consist of 60 unforgettable hours, from Friday evening to Sunday, with city tours and adventures, workshops, and fun social hangouts. These weekends are designed to help organizers connect with each other, celebrate the TED spirit and mission, and fall in love with the place in which they are held.

TEDxLagos is thrilled to announce TEDxWeekend Lagos, happening on November 8-10, 2024. We're excited to welcome TEDx organizers from around the world to join us for a fantastic weekend.

Get ready to have a fantastic time!
