PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — After three postponements and over 1,000 days in the making, Year 10 of TEDxPortland is back and bigger than ever.

The symbolism is even more relevant now given what we have all persevered with and the magnitude of this event,” the statement read. “TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. Organizers are going ALL IN on the “E is for Entertainment” delivering value into the 10th anniversary like never before.

Headlining Death Cab for Cutie, this year’s unique lineup of Portland events will include 15 “TED Talks” from local Rose City residents and 6 performances, including a tribute to Jimi Hendrix by Tyrone Hendrix, Portugal, of Portland .
