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.

Where will you be this Thursday?

Published on March 4, 2013

The speakers are set, tickets sold out quickly, and the Tower Theatre is the place to be this Thursday night, March 7!

The show starts at 7pm but the doors open at 6:30, and you will want to be there at that time---the line forms quickly and while ticketed folks get in first, there is always a rush line (people who weren't able to get tickets but are still lined up just in case) that will be admitted starting about 10 minutes or so before the event.

And if for some reason you're one of those that don't have tickets, please come down Thursday night anyway and join that rush line! We've been very fortunate in that we haven't yet had to turn anyone away, plus we'll be holding a number of "rush tickets" to hand out to the first several dozen people who line up---so it's a pretty safe bet that if you arrive anytime before 6:30 you'll most likely be able to get in.

And don't forget the after party! This time around it's taking place at the Astro Lounge, and we've love for you to join us!

This Thursday, it's going to be great!
