WRAL TechWire/Gig East
Raleigh

In 2016 WRAL TechWire, the City of Wilson, and Greenlight Broadband partnered on Gig East, a convening aimed at engaging the regional community in the possibilities that exist for those doing business in and living in Wilson—North Carolina’s first and only Gigabit City. Since that time, Gig East has evolved into a sustaining annual event held adjacent to the City’s annual Whirligig Festival and a monthly meet-up series that emphasizes the possibilities it’s broadband infrastructure and growth-minded culture provides entrepreneurs and enterprise business, those leveraging smart city technology and IoT, those engaged in agribusiness/agriprenuership, and innovators and disruptors.
