Frequently Asked Questions

Are you already registered or considering attending Grow with Google Lenoir? Here’s what you should know before joining us at the event.

Grow with Google is an initiative that draws on our 20-year history of building products, platforms, and services that help people and businesses grow. Through Grow with Google, we aim to help everyone across America – those who make up the workforce of today and the students who will drive the workforce of tomorrow – access the best of Google’s training and tools to grow their skills, careers, and businesses.

We are thrilled to bring Grow with Google to Lenoir, home to one of our Google owned and operated data centers since 2007. In additional to employing over 250 people at the data center, we also work hard to support this special community in which our employees live and work. Since 2009, we've awarded more than $5.5 million to local Lenoir schools and nonprofits. We've invested in several green initiatives, including a collaboration with Duke University and Duke Energy to turn hog waste at a Yadkin County farm into renewable energy. We also support educational initiatives in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through grants, events, and programs. Now, we're bringing Grow with Google to town, and we are excited to see how the tools and resources can help the Lenoir community develop new digital skills and grow their businesses.

The event will be held on Thursday, September 20 from 9:00am - 5:00pm.

The event will be held at the J.E. Broyhill Civic Center. The address is 1913 Hickory Blvd., Lenoir, NC 28645

No, you are free to come to the event without attending a workshop. We have plenty of other things for you to check out, including hands-on demos, 1-1 coaching, and more. If you’d like to do this, please choose ‘General Event Lenoir’ on our registration page.

If you select ‘General Event Lenoir’ on the registration page, this means that you are confirmed to attend Grow with Google Lenoir. However, this option does not guarantee a seat in any of our workshops offered. If you’d like to attend a specific workshop, please select that on our registration page to secure your seat. 

Unfortunately, this means the workshop is at capacity and we’re unable to take any additional guests for that workshop. If you are unable to register for a particular workshop, but would still like to attend, we recommend choosing ‘General Event Lenoir’ on our registration page. After you check-in at the event, you can wait in the stand-by line for the workshops you’d like to attend. If spots in the workshop open up, we will admit people in the stand-by line on a first-come, first-served basis.
