We are thrilled to partner with local forward-thinking companies that value creative solutions, innovation and meaningful impact, and also share our vision for a world shaped by powerful ideas.
TEDxBarcelona is a not-for-profit event organized by unpaid volunteers. Any sponsorship goes directly to paying for expenses such as venue, catering, advertising, and other materials and costs that support the event.
Simply put, we can’t produce a TEDxBarcelona event without the help of our sponsors.

1. You believe in bringing together corporations and individuals who want to be change agents surrounding remarkable thinking and ideas.
2. You want to leverage ideas, technologies, design, and education to help create a better future.

Can we sell products or services at the venue?
Unfortunately, sponsors cannot sell products or services at the venue, but they have the option to give a gift to our speakers, or allow attendees to demo a unique and not publicly available software, gadget, technology, or product.
Why are demos subject to approval?
TEDxBarcelona’s goal is to provide attendees with an experience that they cannot get elsewhere, thus we strive to avoid standard product and service pitches found at most conferences. Acceptable demos are limited to a unique and not publicly available software, gadget, technology, or product that can be tried out by attendees.
If we’re providing drinks, snacks, or food, may we sell to non TEDxBarcelona attendees?
Unfortunately, in-kind drink, snack, or food sponsors cannot sell items at the venue. In addition, drink, snack, or food sponsors cannot give their items away to non TEDxBarcelona attendees while on the venue’s premises.
What kind of partners does TEDxBarcelona accept?
As we mentioned, we accept all kind of forward-thinking partners that share our vision for a world shaped with ideas. Under no circumstances we’ll accept as partners companies related to weapons/ammunition, tobacco/cigarettes or adult-oriented products/services.
Can we give a TEDxTalk at TEDxBarcelona or select some speakers?
Sorry, sponsors have no editorial control or veto power over the program and may not present from the stage either. No one can pay to be included in the program!
