What is Grow with Google?

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.

Why is Grow with Google coming to Reno?

We are excited to bring Grow with Google to Reno, Nevada! The “Biggest Little City in the World” has one of the fastest growing economies in the nation and an emerging tech scene.

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 Reno’ on our registration page.

What does ‘General Event Reno’ mean?

If you select ‘General Event Reno’ on the registration page, this means that you are confirmed to attend Grow with Google Reno. 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. 

What if the workshop I’d like to attend isn’t on the registration page or is full?

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 Reno’ 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.

Why can I only sign up for two sessions?

To do our best to accommodate as many guests as possible, we have to limit the number of workshops each individual can sign up for.

After you check-in at the event, you can wait in the stand-by line for the workshops you’d like to attend.
