It is a free event held at

It is a free event held at night during a weekday. A place where we can all network, talk, drink and watch presentations. It is all paid for by sponsors. It is ran in 2 parts.

1st Part

We have some type of hands on event. A contest maybe. Here is an example I like to use. Break people into groups and give them a set of playing cards and some tape. Which ever group could build the best sculpture/castle our of playing cards in less than 20 minutes wins. Maybe everyone in the group would win a prize from a sponsor.

2nd Part

We have presentation scheduled that last 5 minutes. Each person has 20 slides that rotate automatically every 15 seconds. The presentations are on creative and interesting things that are not your everyday type of presentation.

This is the basics of an Ignite event. On top of this, we may have door prizes, raffles, t-shirts, drink tickets etc. Depends on the response from sponsors.

I hope this helps explain things.

Another very similar event

Another very similar event is Pecha Kucha nights, which happen all over the world, but have been held in Jacksonville and Miami locally.

Ignite adds the hands-on portion, making the event much more engaging and participation-driven from the first minute.

I have posted videos from the first Pecha Kucha Night Jax at Orlando Scene TV

I'm curious: is this

I'm curious: is this tomorrow (Dec. 18th) or Jan. 18 as it states on the CoLab site? I don't want to make a trip if nothing's happening. Thanks.
