‘The Headliners’ part 2: Summer Leadership Conference, CLT Teradata Forum, Asheville Smart Series & more across NC

Keeping track with our initiative to spotlight North Carolina startup and tech events, WRAL TechWire’s weekly “Headliners” column is now divided into two parts—inside and outside the Triangle.

Following is a list of May and June meetups, conferences, workshops, socials and networking events happening in Asheville, Charlotte, the Piedmont Triad, and other areas throughout North Carolina.

To find out what’s happening this month in the Triangle, check out this post.

Another post spotlights hot events coming up in July, accompanied by a separate preview of the 2018 FREEDM Conference. Recurring monthly meetups are also featured in a separate post.

These columns are an extension of our interactive calendar of tech and startup events. If you’d like to suggest an event to be added to the calendar, feel free to send me an email.
