WHo we are

"Inspiring, Beautiful, Uplifting"

Here at TEDxQueenstown we are driven to produce amazing talks, great food and drink and an experience you won't forget but also to remember our deeply community-based audience. We work, play and dream together. Our first event was held in 2013 and we've been steadily growing ever since. We are always looking for the ways we can bring the best possible experience to our TEDxQueenstown audience.


TEDx Queenstown is only possible because of the incredible team we have working away in the background.
