At Vodafone we believe that New Zealand will be a better place to live if everyone can access the world’s best digital resources. That’s why we’re proud to be partnering with TEDxAuckland.

TEDxAuckland is an independently organised member of the global TED community. Their mission is to create the Pacific's leading platform of great ideas, story-telling, and actionable innovation.

As a team they passionately believe in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world. We’re thrilled to be collaborating to help them do this.

Upcoming events

TEDxAuckland holds events throughout Auckland each year. Watch this space to learn how you can get involved.
TEDxAuckland is back at Whoa! Studios and The Grounds. Get ready for an exceptional confluence of ideas, networking, and culinary experience (and of course the famous after-party).

Join the conversation, as we make history - and make sense of it. We’ll be one of the very few, live in person TEDx events taking place in the world and we’d love you to be part of it.

We have an incredible line up of 5 speakers and a 5 course dinner. With only 150 places available, get in quick to be a part of it.

Please join us at Whoa! Studios on Saturday 14th November 2020 for a night you’ll never forget in a year you’d like to forget.
