Become a Partner

Partnering with TEDxBristol puts you at the heart of the biggest conversations on the TEDx platform in 2019 and gives you an exclusive opportunity to connect with the best minds in innovation, technology and media both in the South West and around the globe.

Influencers from across the country attend TEDxBristol to source new, game-changing ideas, make contacts and experience the infectious optimism of our speakers and workshops.

By joining us as a key sponsor, a delivery partner, or a supporter of the event, you can join these conversations and contribute to the success of Bristol’s brightest ideas platform and one of the most respected platforms for thought leadership in the world.

Some partnerships promise a mention and your logo on the website, that goes without saying. As you’d expect from TEDx, partnering with us is different, you’ll:

  • Work closely with us to develop the best fit for you. No cookie-cutter packages here!
  • Benefit from being part of our engaged community as we bring you into the conversation through social channels and our exciting content. More than just mentions!
  • Get exclusive access to the main event, our launch events and even opportunities to contribute to key public engagement events throughout the 2019 campaign. You’re part of it!

Our values

There are three pillars supporting everything we do here at TEDxBristol, nurturing new talent, engaging with our diverse community and seeking out innovative collaborations and protecting our one precious planet. 

We would like to invite you to join the positive disruption and creation of high-impact social capital via one or more of our partnership plans - whichever matches up with your own values and objectives.
