IGNITE: Las Vegas 2020 
February 4-7, 2020

IGNITE: Las Vegas 2020 will be at Bally's Las Vegas Hotel! 


It's an incredible property that will suit our event very well by offering a high quality experience and amenities while giving you exceptional value. 


A few of the many Bally's highlights:

  • Newly renovated guest rooms (pictured below), part of a $125 million property refresh

  • Located in the heart of the Strip near excellent restaurants and entertainment

  • Room rates of only $95 ($65 plus $30 resort fee).  Normal rates at Bally's are $199 or more/night during the conference dates - we were simply able to get you an amazing deal!

  • Meeting space that's easy to reach and navigate

  • bright, clean experience with updated conference rooms and natural light

  • Only 3-4 miles from the airport

We look forward to welcoming you to Las Vegas.  It's a city that offers so much, from incredible food to natural beauty and even family friendly options

"I was instantly surrounded by warm welcomes from past attendees willing and able to help me navigate the rooms and connect with others who were in the know about all things development. The breakout sessions I attended offered both theoretical and practical information, and I was invigorated by the two keynote presentations. For me, the underlying theme of IGNITE was that in-person, genuine, communication matched with relationships is the most impactful way to build community across organizations"
