*IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL* RTP180: Gaming 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?

The term “gaming” can evoke all sorts of meanings, from board games to esports and popular online games. At this month’s RTP180 event, learn how local professionals are trailblazing in the gaming industry. Whether you’re a n00b or an XG, enjoy next-level knowledge along with complimentary popcorn, beer from Fullsteam RTP and wine from RTP Uncorked.
