Via the Ignite Portland blog “This morning, we announced that 550 free tickets for Ignite Portland 4 were available. Less than 3.5 hours later, they were all spoken for. That’s amazingly fast! To give you an idea, it took 2 months for 400 people to reserve a spot at Ignite Portland 1. For IP2, 400 spots went in 2 days. Ignite Portland 3 moved 400 tickets in under 22 hours.
