RESEACH TRIANGLE PARK – Mid-pandemic, the proverbial “new normal” brings with it new challenges and opportunities for our daily social interactions—impacting everything from getting a morning coffee to jogging on a busy sidewalk to restructuring the average workday. For North Carolina’s entrepreneurial and business communities, chances to network and make new connections face-to-face are now limited in the absence of in-person conferences and exhibitions.

But since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, local organizations dedicated to supporting North Carolina’s startup and business communities were quick to adapt to an increasingly remote networking landscape. And now, after seven months of virtual conferences, webinars, meetups, networking events and job fairs, WRAL TechWire is checking in to gauge their plans for potentially returning to in-person events.

Find out what RIoT and other triangle-based organizations had to say about returning to in-person events on WRAL TechWire.
