NEW! Documentation of complete COVID-19 vaccination is required to attend. We are providing everyone with a fitted N95 mask, which recent studies suggest are 75-100x more effective at preventing infections than traditional masks. You must wear your mask at all times. We're also making other changes to the format to keep everyone safe. We're excited to see you again!

Ignite Seattle is the largest open submission public speaking event in the Pacific Northwest. 3 to 4 times a year, one of the greatest audiences in the world gathers to hear interesting people tell interesting stories. Each speaker gets 20 slides, for 15 seconds each, to share a passion for 5 minutes – it’s an evening of curated discovery. We take pride in providing every audience with a deep sense of the community + possibility that surrounds us in Seattle in every moment.
