The spectacular business and community innovation event that saw hundreds of bigwigs fly into Bowraville in 2017 to ponder the future of the Mid North Coast has announced this year’s venue for IGNITE MNC will be ... Bellingen.

Organised by Regional Development Australia Mid North Coast, the event is designed to draw together the brightest minds of the Mid North Coast to brainstorm, consider and propose concepts for the future of the region.

This year's theme will focus on enterprise development and innovation and early bird tickets for the symposium day on November 7 are now available.

Participants will learn from the panels, meet a range of entities who can support your business (or community initiative) to grow and thrive, and network with a broad range of people from across the region.

AND... in true IGNITE MNC style you can expect some surprises - including this year's celebrity MC, who has not yet been announced.

Last year it was Todd Sampson, breakout star of ABC TV’s Gruen and a co-host on the Channel 10 news show, The Project, and  writer, producer and host of Redesign My Brain, which won documentary of the year.
