Why is Grow with Google coming to Wichita?

We are excited to bring Grow with Google to Kansas’s largest city! The City of Wichita and local educators are committed to preparing the next generation of workers and Wichita is on the move. There is also a collaborative community of local organizations working to advance economic opportunity. Wichita is a great fit for Grow with Google. We believe Grow with Google’s tools and resources will help Kansans develop new skills and grow their businesses.

Do I have to sign up for a workshop?

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 Registration’ on our registration page.

What does ‘General Event Registration’ mean?

If you select ‘General Event Registration’ on the registration page, this means that you are confirmed to attend Grow with Google Wichita. 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 Registration’ on our registration page. When you check-in at the event, please ask to be placed on the waitlist for any workshops you’d like to attend, and we’ll do our best to get you into those sessions.  

Why can I only sign up for three 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. If you are unable to register for a particular workshop, but would still like to attend, we recommend choosing ‘General Event Registration’ on our registration page. When you check-in at the event, please ask to be placed on the waitlist for any workshops you’d like to attend, and we’ll do our best to get you into those sessions.  

Can I bring my spouse, children, or friends to the event?

Of course! Everyone is invited to join us at the Grow with Google Wichita event.
