The TEDActive conferences encourages thought leaders to tinker, explore, and share unique ideas in the form of tedtalks that provide attendees with an intellectual pilgrimage through critical conversations, enlightening moments, and deep thought.
The tedtalks become an online inspirational platform at TED.com of ted conference videos that thousands watch on daily basis.

For Whistler, this conference is one of the first events that the internationally acclaimed ski resort has had a chance to welcome such high-level global influential leaders since the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Whistler’s natural beauty in the mountains combined with a large range of outdoor activities presents the perfect opportunity for attendees to extend a family ski vacation or a reflective intellectual journey. Whistler’s hosting of 2014 TEDActive Conference is the perfect opportunity for the ski resort to showcase their community to the world’s most influential thinkers and thoughts leaders.
