TED, is an organization that promotes “ideas worth sharing,” lend its name and support to TEDx Events, a series of conferences on urban futures held in several cities and organizations around the world. The conferences, part of a TEDx series (“TED” to signify the format; with “x” standing for “independently organized events”), were locally run and organized without the direct inputs from TED.
TEDxNMIMSShirpur started with a theme ‘Make a Difference in & out’. It took place at NMIMS Mukesh Patel Technology Park Shirpur; the audience included students, and Faculty members. They came to take in talks by eleven speakers, covering topics ranging from urban Development, Health Care, secure yourself during a hostage situation.
One month of assiduous preparations finally culminated into a grand show on the 5th of March 2017. It started with a lot of work but at the end got converted into an enthusiastic, Idea Sharing and an enjoyable event.
The day started early, with the assembling of all the volunteers at 8:00 am in the premises. The arrangements, including decorations and technical checks were done with maximum care, with the speakers and the attendees arriving at 9:30 am.

TEDxNMIMSShirpur was a great success as a large number of students had turned up for the event, despite the fact being that it was held on a Sunday.
