We are thrilled to announce our next event, TEDMED 2020, is moving to an exciting new home in Boston, and to a brand new spot on the calendar. We look forward to seeing you March 2-4, at the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston’s up and-coming Seaport District.
Boston is the perfect home for TEDMED 2020, a city and a community with deep roots in pioneering new ideas and pushing forward innovation – much like TEDMED itself.
We hope you make plans to join us at TEDMED 2020. Early-bird registration will be opening soon.

A healthy society is everyone’s business. That’s why TEDMED Speakers are thought leaders and accomplished individuals from every sector of society, both inside and outside of medicine. Whether they come from science, business, academia, government, law, media, or the arts – whether they are doctors, patients, or Muppets – the extraordinary voices of the TEDMED stage unlock our imaginations. They inspire new thinking that can lead to a healthier world.
A single session of TEDMED might include a Nobel Prize-winning researcher, a dance troupe, a health activist, a venture capitalist, and a brilliant young medical student. Each is selected because they have an amazing story to share…and a different way of looking at the world.
Attending TEDMED 2020 not only means experiencing inspiring TEDMED Talks live and in-person, but also becoming part of our unique and engaging community of public health leaders, clinicians, researchers, scientists, creators, innovators, and influencers.
Whether it’s joining a curated conversation on an unexpected theme, a lively workshopping session over breakfast, or an immersive community experience, there are plenty of ways to connect with other leading thinkers and doers at TEDMED.
Additionally, TEDMED 2020 offers you the chance to fully immerse yourself in various health experiences. Choose to start your day with a mindfulness class or a heart-pumping workout. And from morning until night, we’ll provide you with nutritious meals and snacks to fuel your body and mind. At TEDMED, you are given the time and space to unplug from your day-to-day routine, inspiring new ways to approach the challenges we face in health and medicine today.
We hope you’ll join us in Boston for TEDMED 2020. Registration for TEDMED Alumni is open now, and early-bird registration opens soon. Stay up-to-date on the latest information about TEDMED 2020 by signing up for our newsletter and following us on Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
Here's what our Delegates say
TEDMED 2020 takes place in Boston’s up and coming Seaport District, March 2-4, 2020 at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel.
Boston is a city and a community with deep roots in pioneering new ideas and pushing innovation forward—much like TEDMED. Boston boasts renowned industry-leading companies, world-class academic institutions and scientific R&D, some of the nation’s top-ranked hospitals, the country’s highest number of arts and cultural organizations per capita, and an impressive entrepreneurial ecosystem that supports a cutting-edge health tech start-up culture.
As a city with innovation at its core, we were interested to learn that Boston also lays claim to many technological and social “firsts,” including the world’s first telephone, and the United States’ first public park, first public library, and first public secondary school. Also, America’s very first inoculations happened in Boston, way back in 1721. To this day, the city remains a hotbed for health and medical innovation, making it the perfect location for TEDMED 2020.
TEDMED and Boston: We’d say it’s a perfect match.
