About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Ignite Bend 13

If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 PowerPoint slides and they rotated automatically every 15 seconds? Around the world people have been putting together “Ignite” nights to share their answers.

Following the incredible success of previous Ignite Bend events, we are pleased to announce that Ignite Bend 13 will be held on October 29, 2015! We hope that you will participate in this outstanding community event as a speaker, voter and attendee!

Ten speakers will be pre‐selected from the submissions based on feedback and votes collected online and at a voting party. The presenters selected to speak at Ignite Bend 13 will receive a handmade coffee mug bearing the Ignite Bend logo from Mug Revolution.

As a free community event, Ignite Bend is thankful for community support in the form of sponsorships. Please contact our sponsor coordinator (sponsors@ignitebend.com) for more information.

Volunteers are needed to help Ignite Bend run smoothly. Please contact our volunteer coordinator (volunteers@ignitebend.com) if you wish to help at the event on October 29.

Ignite Bend 12 - Tonight!

Slides are in, tickets are printed, and palms are sweaty! We're now mere hours away from Ignite Bend 12 at the Tower Theatre!

Don't forget the doors open tonight at 6:30pm, so be sure to get there early and score a good place in line---and chat with your fellow Igniters! Once inside you'll be able to purchase beer and wine from the Tower.

And if you don't have a ticket, come down anyway! We always have extra "rush line" tickets just for this purpose and we haven't had to turn away anyone yet. Ticket holders get in at 6:30, and the rush line will start a short time after that.

Above all, have a great time! We've got a fantastic line-up of speakers and some great raffle prizes and we are looking forward to seeing you!
