IPAH5 is coming November 20, 2015!

We are excited for IPAH 5, and judging by the buzz already started, so are you. Mark your calendars (and start off the holiday season the right way!) for November 20th, 2015.

The Mint will be hosting us again, and they did a kick-ass job last year. More details are coming on submissions and ticket sales. You can also keep up-to-date by visiting our Facebook Page, and we promise to post more in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, think about speaking. Have you been to a past Ignite Phoenix After Hours? Do you know someone who would be a compelling presenter, that does something really interesting? Give ’em a nudge. Tell them how awesome this event is. They will get tons of support from us, too, to prepare for the event.

Summer may be over, but we can guarantee it’s going to be a HOT night on November 20th.

*Submissions close October 30th.



The next After Hours is coming November 20, 2015!

Someone pointed out that we never updated this site after the last Ignite Phoenix After Hours wrapped up. It just took a while for all the charges to get dropped, the craziness to die down, and for us to be allowed back into the country. Or maybe we just forgot in all the event fantasticness…

After Hours #4 was a blast, and we’re doing it again on November 20th. We will be returning to The Mint, too, because they handled us oh-s-ell last year. This site and our Facebook page are the places to watch for details. We hope to see you there, and thanks for supporting Ignite!

Event details

  • Admission: Tickets are currently SOLD OUT. However, there are always a few people who can’t go at the last minute. We will be guiding them to our Facebook page, so keep an eye on that page to find tickets or a hot date. Also, remember to bring your ID since this is a 21+ event.
  • Times: Doors open at 6:000 p.m. on Friday, November 14th, and the show will start at 7:00 p.m.
  • Parking: Click here for a parking map. The Mint is located at 7373 E. Camelback Road on Camelback just east of Scottsdale Road. You can use street parking around the club, the parking garage on 4377 W. Wells Fargo Ave., or valet at the W Hotel west of The Mint.
  • Food: Things may get a little hot and steamy at IPAH, so The Mint has cooked up some special dishes to follow suit. The menu will include jalapeno mac and cheese, chicken strips and fries, and vegetarian egg rolls with sweet and sour sauce.
  • Drinks: The Mint has a full bar to fuel the party. Cash is preferred, so stop by the bank on your way there or use the on-site ATM.
  • Attire: Whether you want to dress to the nines, pull out your banana hammock, or go topless (yes, really), anything goes at IPAH. Most people will be casual, but go on with your bad self and dress in whatever makes you feel good! Just make sure to wear comfortable shoes because seating is limited.
  • Get social: Follow our Facebook page for updates, and use #IPAH4 on your posts at the event. Remember – no pictures or video are allowed without permission from the After Hours team.

In true Ignite Phoenix fashion, tickets to After Hours #4 went faster than your first time (hey-o!). We’re officially sold out, but if you want to get your little hands on one of these golden tickets, watch the Ignite Phoenix After Hours Facebook page in the coming weeks.

People often contact us when they can’t attend at the last minute or if they have an extra ticket. We’ll be guiding them to our Facebook page, where they can post a message and find a new owner or a hot date.

So, don’t put away those assless chaps you were going to wear quite yet. Keep an eye on that page, and we hope to see you (and your chaps) on the 14th.

Cat’s out of the bag! Your After Hours #4 speakers are…

You dirty, morbid, naughty, brave people. You sent in so many crazy submissions for Ignite Phoenix After Hours #4 that it took HOURS to narrow them down. After many drinks, heated discussions, and an awkward run-in with a priest, we finally have our official line-up of speakers! From serious to sassy and “Oh cool!” to “Oh HELL no!” there will be a little something for everyone on November 14th.

Meet the people who will be baring their souls (and twisted minds) for you at After Hours #4, and mark your calendars to buy tickets when they go on sale next Saturday, October 25, at 10:00 a.m.
