The focus for this year’s event, which is titled 'The big X', referring to ‘the big unknown’ and the way society will change as a result of emerging technologies - a quality reflected in TCS’ own Business 4.0 vision, where the combination of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, internet of things and cloud technology are radically changing the business environment.

The three-year partnership, which also marks TCS’ recent 25th anniversary in the Netherlands, will provide a major platform for independent thinkers to spark discussions and ideas on how technology can shape society, business and ultimately contribute to a better world.

Amit Kapur, director and head of TCS Benelux, commented, "Our partnership with TEDxAmsterdam comes at a pivotal point for both organisations, with this year marking the 10th edition of TEDxAmsterdam, as well as our own recent 25th year anniversary in the Netherlands. Our collaboration for the next three years will provide a fantastic platform for innovative speakers to come and discuss the role that technology is playing in shaping the business world.”

Monique van Dusseldorp, program director at TEDxAmsterdam, "The goal of TEDx is to help realise innovative groundbreaking ideas in technology, design and entertainment alongside our partners, and TCS’ global presence brings a wealth of experts, companies and ideas to our partnership – something that forms a very exciting match for us as we all look to the future."

The TEDxAmsterdam collaboration continues TCS’ commitment to regional initiatives in Benelux, with the company supporting the European Business Summit through its Strategic Partnership for the second year in May, and the Netherlands team set to host its fifth Amsterdam Marathon on October 21st.

TEDxAmsterdam will take place on November 29, 2018 in the Stadsschouwburg in Amsterdam. For more information, please visit https://tedx.amsterdam/.
