TEDxXiguan is a local yet at the same time international platform, celebrates great ideas and forging them into actions. This platform is built around TED’s ideal “Ideas Worth Spreading” and officially licensed TEDxXiguan conferences and activities. 

作为一个既有本土情怀又十分国际化的平台,TEDx西关欢迎所有优秀的想法,并努力将这些想法付诸行动。我们践行TED宗旨“传播优秀想法”并以TED官方认证的会议和活动为原点,不断发展壮大。

Our mission, is to stage ideas and explore possibilities that make positive changes in our community.

我们的任务,就是把想法展示出来,并探索任何可能,来推进我们的社区乃至社会不断向好发展。

This year is a critical year in TEDxXiguan history. Not only because we have successfully finished the first TEDx ED (Education) event in mainland China in 2015, then a big TEDxLive party, everybody is watching what’s TEDxXiguan’s next move. We ourselves are also striving to deliver something new, something bigger, something bolder, with only improvement in quality in every single aspect we operate in. 

今年对于TEDx西关来说至关重要。不仅是因为我们去年在中国大陆第一次开展了TEDx ED(关注教育话题)活动,而后举办了盛大的TEDxLive聚会,所有人都在关注我们接下来要做什么。我们自己也在努力,想把更新颖、更宏大、更大胆有创意的内容带给大家,全面提升我们在各个领域的水平。

That doesn’t mean we are distracted by the idea of becoming “better”. In fact, we are investing unprecedented effort, into putting together the speaker line-up for this year. And that is where you can help us. 

当然,这并不意味着我们为“变得更好”这个想法所分心。实际上,我们正在以前所未有的努力来打造更强大的讲者阵容。这正是你可以帮助我们的地方。

We are a small group, as a matter of fact we can’t find all of the great ideas in Guangzhou, on ourselves, not to mention all of the great ideas in the world. That’s why we opened “Speaker Nomination Process”, if you know someone belongs to TEDxXiguan Stage, or you think yourself belong there, nominate him/her from the menu on our WeChat account, or on our website.

我们只是一小群人,因此我们没有办法凭借一己之力发掘出隐藏在广州各个角落的优秀想法,更别提发现那些散落在世界各处的思想。正是因为如此,我们才设立了“讲者提名流程”。如果你觉得有谁属于TEDx西关的讲台,或者想要毛遂自荐,都可以通过我们的微信公众号进行提名,也可以通过网站参与。

Another way of being part of our mission, is to become a partner. As an non-profit organisation all of our income are 100% put into the production and maintenance cost of our event. Nobody working with TEDxXiguan, not even the speakers, are being paid. So partnership is really our lifeblood. 

另一个加入到我们使命中来的方式,就是成为我们的合作伙伴。作为非盈利组织,我们的收入都直接投入到活动的制作和日常的运营开销中去。TEDx西关的成员,包括我们的讲者,都是没有任何收入的。因此我们的合作伙伴是维持我们活动能够继续运行的关键所在。

We don’t call it “Sponsorship”, because marketing with TEDxXiguan is not only giving your marketing budget out for a logo appearance opportunity. For every single one of our partners we customise our package for their best experience. We offer design consultancy from our own organising committee and our Braintrust, a group of people working in media, advertising, marketing, internet, law, etc., to ensure our partners create meaningful interaction with their target audience. Partnership with us is not only an one-off activity, some of our partners get to “travel the world” with our talk videos. For your customised partnership plan, please contact us at partnerships@tedxxiguan.com, or simply drop us a message in WeChat, one of our team will reach out to you. 

我们不称之为“赞助”,因为与TEDx西关合作宣传不仅仅是拿出你的宣传经费换取一个展示Logo的机会。我们为每一个合作伙伴量身定做合作方式,使得我们的合作伙伴获得最好的体验。我们的核心组织团队以及高层顾问团队会为我们的合作伙伴提供各方面的设计咨询,确保我们的合作方和他们的目标群体得到有意义的互动。这是一群在媒体,广告,市场营销,互联网,法律方面工作的人。合作的意义不仅仅是现场的一次曝光,除此之外,一些合作方也将随着我们的线上宣传和演讲视频“畅游世界”。请联系partnerships@tedxxiguan.com以获得量身定做的合作方案,或者直接回复我们的微信,我们的成员会很快联系你。

Our TEDxXiguan events are made possible by our great partners, and we invite you to think with us, how you can be part with us. Be you a creative agency who could help us on our design and marketing strategy, a staging company could help us to do audio & visual set up, a F&B business want to showcase your latest recipe. Let’s create something great for our community that we are all proud of it.

是我们的合作伙伴让TEDx西关活动成为可能,我们鼓励你们和我们一起思考,你可以如何投入到我们的使命中去。不管你是一家创意公司可以在设计和宣传计划上帮助我们,还是一家舞台公司可以帮助我们搭建音响和视频,或者是一家餐饮企业想要展示最新的美食。让我们一起为我们的社区做点什么,做一些我们都为自己自豪的事情。

There were some great companies joined our mission last year, I encourage you to check them out on our website.

在去年的活动里,有很多很好的公司加入了我们的使命,到我们的网站上去看看他们是谁吧。

If you neither know anyone to nominate, nor control your company’s marketing budget - no problem at all, help us by sharing this message, and become a TEDxXiguan Ambassador, the reason why you are reading this, we believe, is because you believe in the power of great ideas, just like us.   

如果你暂时没有想要提名的人,也不控制你们公司的宣传经费——没关系,帮我们传播这条信息,成为TEDx西关的大使,因为我们相信,你在读这篇文章,是因为你也相信一个好想法的力量,正如我们一样。
