This year TEDxBinnenhof will take place on the 31st of March 2016 in the Knight’s Hall in The Hague. The program will be from 14.00 – 18.00, followed by an evening program (times are subject to change, please check our website for the latest information). More information will follow soon.

TEDxBinnenhof is an invitation-only event. In February we will launch a campaign to select guests outside our own network. So we encourage you to like our Facebook page to stay in the loop and to grab the opportunity to apply for one of the extra seats.

We are still in the process of selecting speakers and performers and will update the website with the program once it is finalised. Want to stay up to date? Like our Facebook page.

In the context of the Dutch Presidency of the European Council in the first half of 2016, this year’s TEDxBinnenhof will have an EU-wide focus. In order to make the line-up representative of European diversity Member States joined forces to seek and find the best and most inspiring ideas through national auditions.

The 28 national finalists presented their revolutionary ideas at the SME Assembly in Luxembourg, November 20th 2015. An international jury selected the 10 most inspiring ideas.

The other national finalists are still in the running to win a Wildcard and join the 10 speakers on the stage of TEDxBinnenhof 2016. The Wildcard Challenge runs until 31 January 2016. Do share your vote!
