The Research Triangle Park

RTP 180 | Storytelling

The Frontier | 800 Park Offices Drive, RTP Mar 17 6:00 pm - Mar 17 8:00 pm

While the traditional art of storytelling has been around for centuries, in today’s world the term can be used to convey more than a bard telling tales. At March’s RTP 180, we’ll hear from people across the Triangle that excel at telling stories made for today’s new media landscape. From marketers to journalists, the people taking our stage understand that the stories generated about you, or your business, can produce a more authentic outcome than traditional advertising. So, come out and learn how this genre continues to evolve in today’s technological era.
