When it comes to setting goals for your professional aspirations, "Connect. Grow. Ignite!" probably sounds like your best case scenario to-do list.

Enter ignite520, a local two day summit with that very motto. The conference, put on by Tucson Young Professions, aims to "catalyze personal and professional development, shake up connections, and celebrate awesome things happening in Tucson."

The conference is returning for its third year at the end of this month. Here's what to expect:
During breakout sessions, mixers and more, young professionals are given the chance to connect with others who share a vision for a greater Tucson, and find ways to ignite their current or next endeavor.

Starting March 31st, 2017 at 5:30pm, we’re closing down Cartel Coffee on Broadway for a private mixer and kickoff ceremony! You’ll get to make new connections, start your weekend off with a great evening, and embark on our ignite520 scavenger hunt!

Beginning at 9am on Saturday, you’ll have your choice between morning Yoga or Coffee with Community Catalysts, at the conclusion of which, you’ll head over to CITY for our full-day of intensive sessions!

At lunch, you’ll dine at the newest downtown restaurant, MiAn and participate in “A Conversation on the Future of Downtown” with Downtown leaders Rio Nuevo and Downtown Tucson Partnership with the new AC Marriott and other projects slated for development as your backdrop.

More sessions and our Coffee Break will round off our afternoon. The evening concludes with our “Party for Grownups” at the Tucson Children’s Museum, an event you wont want to miss!

The event takes place all over downtown Tucson Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1.

Tickets range from $45 to $75, and can be purchased online. Or you can try your luck and enter below for a chance to win a pair of tickets (we'll pick winners on Friday, March 24).
