Announcing 2017’s RTP180 Topics

By Jan 04, 2017

Happy New Year! For the last couple of months our team has been discussing what this year’s RTP180 topics will be. We do our best to keep the events interesting by varying the topics from month to month. This year, we have a great group of topics ranging from science and technology, to culture and the future. Take a look, and mark you calendars! Tickets for each RTP180 go on sale one week before the scheduled event date. Be on alert as all 300 tickets go fast!

So, without future ado, I present our 2017 RTP180 topics:

January 19 – Microbiomes
February 16 – Virtual Reality
March 16 – Best of RTP180 (Has a speaker over the years stuck with you? Let us know! We can try to get them back.)
April 20 – Smart Cities
May 18 – Animal Behavior
June 15 – Design
July 20 – Biomedical Engineering
August 17 – Hacking
September 21 – Women in Business
October 19 – Travel
