With the international TED2014 conference making its debut in Vancouver next week, you will have the opportunity to watch the event for free at live web streaming locations throughout the city and region.

“We’re thrilled to welcome TED to Vancouver and look forward to the range of innovative ideas and debate that will emerge from the week-long talks and presentations,” said Mayor Gregor Robertson. “Whether you’re a long-time TED fan or someone learning about it for the first time, you will have the opportunity to watch some of the world’s top minds present their ideas in community spaces across Vancouver.”

This is the 30th anniversary of TED, and is the first time it is being held in Vancouver.
