And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for… 🙂
Update: Wow, those went fast! 550 tickets were requested in under 3.5 hours. But you can still come to Ignite Portland 4! Read that post to see how.
Tickets for Ignite Portland 4 (next Thursday, November 13) are now available! Go to http://tickets.igniteportland.com to get yours.
Tickets to Ignite Portland will always be free. So why have them in the first place? To try to keep lines small, and reduce your anxiety about getting in. If you have a ticket, and you arrive at the Bagdad Theater between 5:30P and 6:15P on the night of Ignite Portland 4, you can stroll right in, and you’ve got a seat. No worries. At 6:15P, we open up to General Admission.
Some important things to remember about the ticket process:
- You’ll be sent an email with a claim code, and you must “claim” your ticket within 24 hours, or it goes back into the pool.
- Check your spam bucket if you don’t get the claim email right away – it might be hiding in there.
- Print out and bring your ticket with you to the event, along with your ID.
Tickets made the whole admission process a LOT smoother at the last Ignite Portland, and our goal is to make it as easy as possible for everyone who wants to attend to get in. Last time, there were plenty of seats for everyone (ticketed and GA), the lines were minimal, and a good time was had by all. That’s what we’re shooting for this time around. We’ve made a larger number of tickets available this time (last time, they were all spoken for in less than 24 hours), based on the “no show” percentage from IP3, and even if every single ticketholder shows up before 6:15P, there would still be room for plenty of general admission. We’ll only close the doors and turn people away if we reach the fire code limit at the Badgad (somewhere North of 700 people).
If you have any questions about the ticket system, post a comment here, and we’ll get you an answer. IP4 is little more than a week away. Who’s excited? 🙂
