RTP180: Digital Marketing

*IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL* RTP180: Digital Marketing 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 up on the virtual 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?

This month, the topic is Digital Marketing. Digital marketing refers to the component of marketing that utilizes the internet and online based digital technologies (computers, mobile phones, other digital media and platforms) to promote products and services. You may attend this event thinking you know all there is to know about Digital Marketing, but get ready to consider a different angle.
