At Business Insider, we believe in the power of digital to connect people in powerful ways.

But that doesn't mean we don't get the unique value - and excitement - of face-to-face communication.

Our IGNITION conference is the place to renew your enthusiasm about your work, your industry, and the world around you.

It's an opportunity to get out and hear from media and tech leaders and changemakers in a fast, fun, and informative setting.

Here are 10 more reasons Business Insider's IGNITION conference is a must-attend event this December in New York.
