How does it work?

Ignite consists of a series of “speed meetings” between a conference attendee and the contribution organization of their choice. Meetings are 7 minutes long, with a 2 minute break between appointments. Meeting requests are matched electronically and schedules will be generated based on preferences and availability. Attendees will be asked to fill out a short registration form and select their top five to ten contributors... it’s that simple.

Two ways to benefit from Ignite!

As a Conference Attendee:

Ignite speed meetings are designed to help you super-charge your conference networking opportunities! You’ll have the unique opportunity to engage the carrier representatives, third party logistics providers and technology leaders of your choice. Shortly before the conference, attendees will select to meet with contributors, and your Ignite meeting schedule will be emailed to you prior to the event. Too many contributors and not enough time? We invite Ignite attendees to remain in the room with our designated SMC³ staff members and stand by for openings.

As a Contributing Organization:

Are you ready to grow your business? Put the power of Jump Start and its broad industry appeal to work for you. As a contributing organization, you’ll receive a designated table at the event for two company representatives, your company name listed on the Jump Start 2017 Ignite web page, your company logo on all Ignite event signage and in the Jump Start 2017 conference guide and mobile app. Your representatives will also be designated as Ignite Contributors on their name badges. Check out our sponsorships to find out how you can be a contributor at Ignite for free or at a discounted rate!

*All contributing organizations must be registered for Ignite by December 31st 2016.
