A snapshot of Ignite 2023

Let's start with a trip down memory lane in the form of our Ignite 2023 highlight reel:



Inspiring Presentations

From industry hot topics to concrete product sessions for users, there were plenty of presentations and 1-on-1 solution center meetings packed into three days at the NOPSI Hotel.

On Day One, Mike Bismeyer gave us an inspiring keynote about the power of kindness advocacy in the transit community, and together we raised over $3000 for the local Ronald McDonald House, which represents over 50 family trips.

On Day 2, Scott Bogren of CTAA kicked off the day by speaking about The Transit Outlook in 2023 and Beyond. On Day 3, TripSpark's GM Rob DeSantis and Modaxo's SVP and Chief Customer Officer Simon Ferguson gave the final keynote on TripSpark's trajectory and how our customers benefit from the talent, expertise, and long-term stability that comes with being part of the Modaxo family of people transportation technology companies.

TripSpark and Routematch experts facilitated the product and industry hot topic sessions, but just as crucially, we had co-presenters from agencies across North America. For example, Karl Farnsworth of Kitsap Transit hosted his very own session On-Demand Best Practices, Muncie Transit cohosted Using Technology to Empower Riders, and Grand Prairie Transit and St. Cloud Metropolitan Transit Commission provided motivating and concrete insights into the topic of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

There were so many more powerful presentations, so review them all! The slide decks are now available on your account. You can find them under “Training” » “Ignite Presentations” in the navigation menu.

Exploring the Big Easy 

In the midst of all that work talk, plenty of you (and the TripSpark team) headed out on the town to discover New Orleans each evening via its historic transit system, a walk down to the Mississippi, or more likely, over to Bourbon Street.
