Tampa, Florida – March 13, 2020 – We want to thank the community for all of your support for Ignite Tampa Bay 2020. For 13 consecutive years, we have brought you Barcamp Tampa Bay plus Ignite Tampa Bay as well as other educational and community events. We also appreciate the outstanding support of our all-volunteer community team.
This year we received great speaker submissions, generous sponsorship, and early ticket sales. We understand the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation is top of mind for all of us right now, and based on the growing concern, we have made the decision to cancel Ignite Tampa Bay 2020. We hate canceling, and we apologize to the community and everyone involved, but we believe this is in the best interest of keeping people in our community safe and healthy.
To keep our community inspired in the midst of this turmoil we will be broadcasting some the awesome Ignite talks from the past decade on our original event date, April 16th you will be able to see those talks on our Facebook Page : https://www.facebook.com/IgniteTampa/. We hope you will be inspired to submit your talk, sponsor, volunteer, or support the speakers on stage for Ignite 2021.
Speakers who have already been selected for 2020 will have the opportunity to speak at our event in 2021. All other speaker submissions to date will be considered without the need to re-apply when we re-open speaker submissions this November for the 2021 event. Once we have secured an updated contract with our venue, we will announce the date for Ignite Tampa Bay 2021.
We will be refunding all ticket sales and plan to hold Ignite 2021 in March of next year.
We hope you will join us for our fall signature event Barcamp Tampa Bay which will be held Saturday, October 3rd at Keiser University.
