Event description


Mind the Product Engage comes to Manchester

We're delighted to launch our MTP Engage conference series in Manchester in February 2019!

In a first for Manchester, we’re bringing a dedicated product conference to the city. MTP Engage is for passionate product managers of all levels of experience; from people interested in getting into product, to veterans of the discipline, the conference offers insight for all. We’ve decided to bring the event to Manchester after fantastic growth in the product community, led by ProductTank Manchester and ProductCamp Manchester.

This new conference in Manchester is an event for passionate product managers positioned between #mtpcon (the world’s two largest product conferences, held annually in London and San Francisco) and the global ProductTank meetups that take place in Manchester as well as 150+ cities around the globe.

We take the name seriously and aim to create opportunities for our audience to engage in various forms around the event. In terms of program, expect keynotes from international speakers providing a broader perspective on digital product management, complemented with talks and interactive sessions by product people from around the UK sharing their hands-on learnings.

Would you like to share your experience? That’s great! You can apply to speak at the conference now. Just fill out this form.

We look forward to seeing you in Manchester!

Don't Miss the Workshops

The day before this conference we will also be running five deep-dive workshops to help you level up your product management skills! Tickets for the workshops need to be purchased separately from your conference ticket - learn more and grab your workshop ticket now.

Workshop + Conference = Separate Tickets

If you decide you'd like to attend one of our pre-conference workshops you'll need to purchase a separate ticket. Conference tickets DO NOT give you access to workshops, nor do workshop tickets give you access to the conference. Grab your workshop ticket here.


We've now announced the first of our speakers and we'll be announcing more very soon.
