Relive TEDxAmsterdam 2013
in different ways
Thank you! Wednesday was special for so many reasons:
we celebrated the 5th edition of TEDxAmsterdam, the
Royal Concertgebouw had invited us to host more
visitors than ever before, and half of the program was a
musical surprise. But once again, the support you
showed online for our speakers and their Ideas Worth
Doing was overwhelming – so thank you for being a part
of the community.
Jim (host and founder): “What a special day it was! I could not have imagined a better party to
celebrate 5 TEDxAmsterdam events in a row.” Monique (program curator): “It was a wonderful
day. Thank you to all involved! Great team, terrific speakers, beautiful music and dance and lots
With the buzz still on a high, here’s how to make sure you don’t miss a thing of what happened:
Interviews & reports to learn more
Ten speakers have been interviewed by Frénk
van der Linden. This interview playlist shows
them all. Our camera reporters show you
everything you didn’t see from behind the
scenes in this reports playlist. You can also find
all videos by clicking on the Talks buttons in
the menu bar on top. And all articles about
TEDxAmsterdam 2013 give you a complete
overview, with text, photos and videos.
Talks are all available now
Yes, it’s true. This year as well we have
published all Talks online before midnight. With
a little help of a realtime cloud system the team
of 40 video producers and editors worked
hard to show you all the Talks and
performances. Check out your favorite
speakers and artists in this TEDxAmsterdam
2013 Talks playlist.
Articles about… everything
If you looked up to the balcony you may have
spotted faces only lit by computer screens. A
team of 15 bloggers captured everything on
stage and off stage. All articles contain
beautiful imagery from the 9 photographers
and many videos to enhance your experience.

We showed a snapshot of 5 years
TEDxAmsterdam in pictures on stage during
the finale. You can dive into the latest and
oldest photos (for a sweet trip down memory
lane) on the official Flickr photostream. Bibi
created this visual storyboard with unique
quotes and Henri shot these panorama photos.
Partners, we love you!
We can’t exaggerate how important the
relationships with our partners, sponsors and
suppliers are to the event. Without their support
in various ways, we wouldn’t be able to
organize TEDxAmsterdam the way we do. From
offering the venue or building an app to
covering the costs of catering 1,000 visitors: we
love all our partners. Curious who we’re talking
about? Find all official supporters on the partner
One partner, however, is the driving operational
force behind the event: Xander Kranenburg and
his colleagues at LiveSolutions. When the tide is
high, they push the buttons. When deadlines
have passed, they call the shots. And when
something goes awfully wrong behind the
scenes – no one notices (although I promise to
write an article about that one day).
Award winner 2013: Stembell
Benno Naaijkens’ StemBell won the Award: his
technology provides an extremely promising
solution to a severe medical problem: heart
attacks. In myocardial infractions, heart failure
results in the death of a part of the heart.
StemBell usesa technique where microbubbles
and sound waves are used to direct stem cells
to the right place. Once again, congratulations!
Watch his TEDxTalk to learn more about this
Award winning concept.
