MTP Engage Hamburg
Fri, April 28, 2017, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM CEST
A new conference for passionate product people
MTP Engage is an all-day conference that brings together 300 product people from various cities in the region with a mix of keynotes & interactive sessions for a more intimate and local product conference to complement the global #mtpcon events.
We are still in the early stages of putting together the agenda (see below for the Call-for-Sessions link*), but the general idea is that we want to use the keynotes for broader & more general topics presented in English. In the interactive sessions we want to get closer to the day-to-day work, helpful frameworks, and methodologies as well as reflections of what the topics presented in the keynotes mean for our own product work. To make it easier for participants to engage, most of these sessions will be held in German. But we will make sure that at any time there’s also at least one English session for the international product community.
As if that’s not enough, for the day before the event we are looking into various formats to bring together participants in small groups to make the most of our time together in one city.
Parts of the agenda and in particular the interactive sessions will feature members & previous speakers of the various regional ProductTank communities.
We look forward to seeing you at MTP Engage in Hamburg in April!
Don't miss the workshops
The day before this conference we are also running a limited number of workshops to help you level up your product management skills! Don't miss out - get your workshop tickets here!
