The Frontier - 800 Park Offices Drive, RTP Sep 17 5:00 pm - Sep 17 8:00 pm


With the All Things Open conference coming up in October, our team thought it would be a wonderful idea to tap into the open source movement with an evening full of subject experts. Open source technologies are being used across most industries in a variety of way, some in ways you might not expect. So come on out and join us for a fun night of openness!

We'll open the doors at 5pm, and the speakers will begin at 6pm.

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles – and what the Research Triangle Park is known for. At “RTP 180°,” speakers from our three founding universities, local companies and the community at-large are called upon to take the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them. The show kicks off at 6pm, but our doors are open beforehand for anyone that would like to come early.

The hashtag for this event is #RTP180 and we always livestream from our YouTube channel over at Afterwards, professionally edited video segments of our speakers will be posted, in case you missed the livestream!

Tickets are free and all 300 seats are usually claimed, so register early!
