We’re interested in any topic as long as it’s interesting, from technology to culture to business to philosophy. The night includes time to network and chat, so be sure to bring business cards! We’re always looking for new speakers but are not interested in product demos. Instead, present a how-to, a travelogue, something inspirational, lessons learned, or a forecast. Ignite talks are 5 minutes long, and speakers are limited to 20 slides which automatically advance after 15 seconds – that’s the fun of Ignite!

A few tips, pointers and examples to help you get a better idea of what to expect:

All Ignite speakers receive a free 2-day Bronze pass to the conference.
