And if you’ve ever thought about getting up on stage and presenting, stop thinking about it and go submit your idea as soon as they open it up for submissions.
The 6th edition of Ignite Boise hits the town on Thursday, April 21st at the Egyptian Theatre in downtown Boise. Doors open to advance ticket holders at 6:00 p.m. (sorry, all tickets have been scooped up), and to the general public at 6:30. Everything on stage kicks off at 7:00.
If you’ve been to an Ignite Boise event in the past, you have a fairly good idea of what to expect, although from my experience, each one is just different enough to keep them interesting. If you’ve never been to one, however, now’s as good of a time as any to start.
Don’t miss it.
Time is running out.
But before we can tell you all about the event, you’ll have to do your part and submit your speaker proposal.
It’s not tough to do. Just a short paragraph that covers what you’d like to speak about. No slides are due at this point — just an idea. If selected, then comes the work of putting together the full presentation.
But don’t wait. Submissions for Ignite Boise 3 are due by 5:00pm on Friday, October 9th.
Ignite Boise has been in the works for a few months, and the event is finally upon us.
What is Ignite Boise, you ask? Well, in a nutshell:
Ignite Boise is a 3 hour-ish idea feeding frenzy that brings together artists, geeks, entrepreneurs, academics, government officials, and others to share their ideas in fast-paced, bite-sized presentations. It’s a great opportunity to meet smart, interesting people (if we do say so ourselves) and maybe even learn something.
But if you didn’t get a ticket already, there’s still hope: Those who have reserved tickets for the event will be allowed in starting at 5:00 on the evening of the event, and public (general) admission begins at 5:30. So if you have a ticket, be sure to get there early. If not, have faith, and there will likely be room for more.
