The success of TEDxPortsmouth is due not only to inspired speakers, enthusiastic fans and dedicated, hardworking volunteers, but to generous sponsors who make this event possible.

Small Stage, Big Reach

As a sponsor, you’ll be reaching an expanded audience on the day of the event and beyond.
Sponsors are recognized throughout the year in the press, on our website and across our social media channels. But the biggest recognition comes after the event, and for years to come, through online views. Here’s how it works: Every time a TEDxPortsmouth talk plays online, viewers see your logo before and after the video. In 2022, we had the huge honor of four of our 12 videos being selected by the TEDx global team to be promoted to a worldwide audience of 36 million subscribers. This is highly unusual for a local event and speaks to the high quality of both our speaker selection and their tremendous performances. Talks at our 2022 event have generated more than 100,000 views to date. And since our inception in 2012, TEDxPortsmouth talks have collectively been viewed more than 1 million times.

Diversity of ideas and perspectives
Visit www.tedxportsmouth.com and consider the speakers and topics that have taken the TEDxPortsmouth stage. You’ll quickly notice that our speakers come from a variety of backgrounds and the topics explored are many and varied. What do they have in common? Our speakers believe passionately that their ideas are worth spreading — and so do we. In 2022, TEDxGlobal affirmed that belief, notifying its global audience of 36.2 million subscribers about the scheduled release of three of our timely and relevant talks.

Financial Stewardship

Where do you dollars go?
TEDxPortsmouth is a nonprofit organization managed 100% by volunteers. Funds raised from sponsorships and ticket sales cover event costs such as printing, venue rental, sponsor signage, promotions, audiovisual equipment rentals and production, food, and event insurance. And since this is a locally produced event, the dollars spent on these costs stay in the community.
