Tandem - Official live streaming partner of TEDxChristchurch 2018

26/09/18

Tandem Studios has been announced as the official live streaming partner for TEDxChristchurch 2018. 

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At the TEDxChristchurch event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 

TED was founded in February 1984 as a conference and has been held annually since 1990 all over the world. The TED talks are famous, with over 11 million subscribers to their main YouTube channel alone.
