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.

Don't forget the stand-by line!

Published on October 16, 2012

The planning committee, speakers and volunteers are all getting very excited for Ignite Bend 9. We're looking forward to seeing you at the Tower Theatre on Wednesday.

As you are probably aware, Ignite Bend 9 has sold out of advance tickets. We want to ensure that we fill up the Tower and everyone who wants to attend is admitted (even if it's standing room only). If you know of others that don't have tickets and would like to attend, there will be a stand-by admission line at the theatre door. Advance ticket holders do not have to wait in this line and will be admitted when the doors open at 6:30pm. Please be courteous to neighboring business and DO NOT queue before 6:15pm.

Join us in saying thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters: BendBroadband • buzztag • Home System Solutions • Wanderlust Tours • OSU-Cascades • Repeat Performance Sports • Connexion Printing Consultants • Mt.
