About this event

ignite520 is back for its 8th year on Saturday, September 24 at the University of Arizona’s Catalyst Studios and Sands Club!


Ignite520 brings together 150-200 participants 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.


Borrowing from the name of the location, the theme of this year is Catalyze: inspiring career growth and community impact. Our sessions will revolve around four themes: Personal Growth, Public Service and Advocacy, Business and Organizational Leadership, and Innovation and the Future.


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




Join us on the campus of the University of Arizona, at the Catalyst Studio for an inspiring day of connection, learning and growth.
