The 6th WICON Annual Conference and Trade Show!

WICON is a transformational community experience that creates forward momentum for you to crush your obstacles. 


The overwhelm we tend to feel in our tech-heavy age can easily take us off course from achieving our goals. That’s why WICON wants to help you bypass the “overwhelm” of life with this years theme, “Change One Thing”. At WICON 2019 we are bringing together dynamic speakers and leaders from around the nation to spur us into growth.

Come be a part of the Treasure Valley’s most transformational professional conference for women and men!

A Unique Opportunity for Vendors

One of the things that sets the Women Ignite Conference apart is that we move back and forth from the conference room with world-class speakers and facilitators, to the “Power Networking Center” with some of the best businesses in Idaho represented, all in one room. Then our vendors can close up shop to join us in the conference room for more stories, strategies and inspiration. 

Vendor Spaces SOLD OUT!

The Miracles of WICON

Each year at WICON, Sheli Gartman surprises us with the unexpected. At WICON 2018 “It’s Our Time”, each attendee was asked what it was their time to do, write it on the ping-pong ball they received in the swag-bag, and drop it in the life-size hourglass in the trade show hall. But, nobody knew what Sheli was going to do with everyone’s answers! Check out the video to see what she did!
