It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the next Ignite Seattle (#42) due to be held on June 4. Instead, we plan to hold the event on Thursday, October 8 at Town Hall Seattle.
At this point any explanation as to why is unnecessary, unless you’ve been living in a cave for the last few months. If that’s the case, please sit down, we’ve got some really bad news…
More info about the postponement, what it means for you, and how COVID is affecting Ignite Seattle is below:
Did you already buy a ticket to the June event?
Even though the event is technically postponed, we will be sending a full refund to anybody who already bought a ticket. If that’s you, expect the refund in your bank account soonish. Tickets for the October date will be on sale soon.
What effect is COVID-19 having on Ignite Seattle?
Ignite Seattle is a completely volunteer run 501(c)3 nonprofit. Since we have no paid staff, nobody in our organization will be financially hurt by the postponement of our June event.
However, like everybody else, we are sad. We’ve all lost something during the crisis and losing the next Ignite is just another disappointments for us.
We hope what’s happening will bring people together to tell more stories, some of which we’d love to see on stage in October. (Now may even be the perfect time to submit a talk.)
As always, we’ll be working to make our next event the biggest and best yet. We hope you’ll be there to join us.
See you in October.
– The Ignite Seattle Team
