About this event

ignite520 is back for its 9th year on Saturday, September 23 at the University of Arizona’s ENR2 (Environmental Resources Building 2)

Ignite520 brings together TYP Members from a wide variety of professions, all seeking to connect with other leaders in their community, learn tactical skills, and gain inspiration by celebrating the present and future of Tucson. During breakout sessions, mixers, and other signature experiences, attendees are given the chance to network with others who share a vision for an inclusive, prosperous and innovative Greater Tucson.

– Only 120 attendees! | We are limiting the Experience to just TYP members, and only 120 participants. That’s on purpose. You will be surrounded by like-minded passionate people in a tighter-knit way than ever before. The 120 who show up are all-in, for the long haul.

– One of the best venues in Tucson! | We will be spending the day together at one of the prettiest places in Tucson, the inspiring ENR2 building on the UArizona campus. Start the day with breakfast and curated networking with amazing views from the rooftop! Then make your way back downstairs for the Welcome Address and Keynote Panel to kick off a day filled with connection, growth, and fun! Lunch will be provided, along with more networking opportunities.

– Tactical, interactive content! | We’ve implemented two tracks with carefully curated content specific to YOUR career needs at this stage You will spend the day with folks who have carefully picked their track and are ALL-IN on what they want to get out of this experience.

Community & Service Track is a curated experience created in partnership with Greater Tucson Leadership and will have sessions based in Community & Service. This track has been curated for “Established Career” TYP members.

Personal & Professional Track is a curated experience for “Early to Mid-Career” TYP members with sessions focused on Personal Growth and Professional Development. There will be a total of four breakout sessions with one Personal Growth and one Professional Development session happening simultaneously, giving you the opportunity to pick and choose your focus throughout the day.

Curated creativity and calm! | NEW this year are intentional breaks throughout the day designed to bring you calm and creativity, for rejuvenation and relaxation. This will not be a 6th work day, but a time to breathe and recharge with passionate, like-minded people.

Please take a moment to lock-in your seat by registering for your ticket as soon as possible.
