Why TEDxThapaeGate? This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED. There are rules on the use of names for TEDx events. Perhaps in the future we can hold a TEDxChiangMai event, for now we have to use the name of a location or neighborhood. We choose TEDxThapaeGate because the Thapae Gate symbolizes the concept of sharing ideas - it is Chiang Mai’s most important gate for trade, commerce, tourism, events, and new ideas. UPDATE: in April 2013, we received the license to hold our events as TEDxChiangMai. Future events will now be held in that name and new website is www.tedxchiangmai.com
At the TEDxThapaeGate 2012 we had an exciting line-up of speakers from Chiang Mai and beyond. Click here to see the speaker line-up.
