Join the TED Community as a TEDxPortsmouth Sponsor

Align yourself with one of the world’s most respected brands

Reach a large, highly educated, community-minded audience the day of the event and beyond.
In 2018, TEDxPortsmouth drew nearly 600 attendees — triple the size of the previous year. In 2019, the event expanded again, selling out a month in advance to a crowd of 900. Our success and growth are due not only to enthusiastic fans and dedicated, hardworking volunteers but to our generous sponsors who make this event possible. TEDxPortsmouth garners not only a huge local following but a global reach with speaker videos generating more than a million views (and counting!) for both sponsors and speakers.

As a sponsor, you’ll be reaching an expanded audience the day of the event and beyond.
In addition to the event in September, you’ll enjoy brand visibility after the event every time a TEDxPortsmouth talk is viewed online as sponsor logos appear on screen before and after each video plays. Sponsors are also recognized throughout the year in the press, on the TEDxPortsmouth website, and across our social media channels.

Where do you dollars go?
TEDxPortsmouth is a nonprofit organization managed 100% by volunteers. Money raised from sponsorships and ticket sales stays in the community and covers the cost of TEDxPortsmouth services such as printing, venue rental, sponsor signage, promotions, audio/visual rentals, food, and event insurance. We take our responsibility seriously to make sure your dollars are directed toward a better future for the Seacoast area.
