Signature Event





RTP180: 3D Designs & Simulations

RTP180 | Sponsored by RTI International

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our founding Universities, Park companies and the North Carolina community at-large, are called upon to speak passionately and authentically about what matters to them. The twist? They must do it in 5 minutes or less!

We ask our speakers to be intentional with their 300 seconds on stage. What perspective of their industry are they able to share? What are their passions? What would our community be surprised to learn? What case studies in North Carolina are cutting edge?

It’s no secret that the metaverse is transforming the way companies and consumers play, work, and soon, live. The world of 3D worlds and technologies has opened up a new frontier of possibilities for emerging industries and offers promising solutions to a myriad of global challenges. In this RTP180, hear from a group of experts with diverse perspectives on 3D designs and simulations. We’ll cover topics such as: product prototyping, motion design, remote technology and more! Network over complimentary popcorn, Fullsteam RTP beer, and RTP Uncorked wine.
