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.
