About Ignite Sydney [Digital]

You may have been to one of the many Ignite Sydney events - we've held 10 of them since 2008.

Ignite is a fast-paced evening with a bunch of lightning presentations on any topic of choice. The twist is that each presenter can use only 20 slides, and each slide auto-advances after 15 seconds.

The idea of Ignite is simple:

Presenters only have 5 minutes on stage...
...to explain their topic using only 20 slides...
...that automatically change every 15 seconds!

Ignite is all about making the slides dynamic & exciting, and forcing the presenters to think about what they show.

If you’re sick of "Death By Powerpoint", then come along to Ignite Sydney [Digital], where you’re guaranteed a fun night of entertaining and educational presentations.

Why Ignite Sydney [Digital]?

We noticed that many of the presenters and audience members from the regular Ignite Sydney come from the worlds of technology - areas like web development, programming and coding, and the emerging fields of internet-connected hardware. So we decided to create a sister event featuring presenters from those industries, and presentations about what's new in digital technology.

Ignite Sydney [Digital] is a brand new event on the technology calendar, following a tried-and-tested formula which is guaranteed to enlighten and entertain you – quickly.
