Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we’re off!

The submission deadline was this past Friday, and we spent Saturday morning judging. No, not judging the submitters. That’s not our style. What we DO do, though, is go through every submission we receive. We know we want the event to be awesome, since so many people wait for it every year. While we wait for those chosen to confirm, you can see all the submissions here: IPAH #5 Submissions.


Tickets! Getcher tickets!!! Tickets go on sale this Saturday, November 7th, at 10am. Here’s the deal: these tickets sell out realllllllllllllllly quickly. As in…a half hour. So, you’re going to want to be ready on Saturday to purchase them. If you don’t get a ticket, don’t fret! Often times, people will buy tickets, won’t be able to use them for whatever reason, and post them on our Facebook Page┬áto sell.

In the meantime, keep November 20th open. You do NOT want to miss IPAH #5. Trust us.

Event details are here. See you soon!

Want to share your passion with a group that won’t judge you?

If so, then Ignite Phoenix After Hours (IPAH) is for you! We welcome subjects that make people think, just like Ignite Phoenix, but this is After Hours. This is 21+. Not exactly Spartacus, but pretty close.

IPAH gives you a chance to tell people truly interested in hearing what you have to say, and they are non-judgmental. Our fans want to hear the stuff you can’t talk about at work. We have created a venue to open up and share those ideas in a safe place. This is, in short, an adults-only water cooler.

Our audience knows they won’t always like everything they hear, but they respect you’re up there, and they know you’ll be done in 5 minutes. They’ve laughed with presenters, cried with presenters, and gotten squeamish with presenters.

And that’s alright by all of us.

So, what’s your passion? What do you wish people could know more about in your life, that you really don’t feel comfortable telling? We want to hear it!

It will only take two minutes to submit to speak – just click here and fill out the form!


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.
