Frontier RTP

What's it all about?

RTP180 is a lively, casual event series that takes place on the third Thursday of every month. Held at Frontier 800, Research Triangle Park’s community space on the Frontier RTP campus, no two events are alike.

On the third Thursday of each month, we choose a new topic to discover. Then, we find the brightest minds and best storytellers from the Triangle region to teach us more about it. We love seeing where our speakers (and audience!) take things each month.

RTP180 is sponsored by RTI International.

How does it work?

The most unique thing about RTP180 is the format. We limit each of our speakers to 5 minutes, with another 5 minutes of Q&A. You, the audience, get the quick and dirty, and then have your chance to learn more about what interests you.

Here's what you can expect each month:

  • 5:00pm: Doors open for beer, popcorn and networking.
  • 6:00pm: The show begins!
  • 7:00ish: The show ends and the beer bar opens back up.
  • 7:45pm: Everybody goes home!
