What is ProductCamp Chicago?

ProductCamp Chicago is free to attend and focused 100% on learning and knowledge sharing with no sales pitches allowed – essentially it's free training on all the hot topics in the industry. You will meet product people just like you, learn about interesting topics, enjoy breakfast and lunch, join fun raffles, and there's a rousing happy hour at the end – what’s not to love?

ProductCamp Chicago was started in 2008 as the Midwest’s version of the Silicon Valley original. Since then we have put on 10 unconferences, each with great keynote speakers and timely, original attendee-generated and selected content. We are now planning our 2020 event for April 4th and expect the highest attendance on record.

What is an unconference?

The idea behind the unconference is simple. The attendees of the original ProductCamp were tired of attending conferences with speakers whose presentations were thinly veiled sales pitches. If they were going to take a day out of their busy schedules, they wanted to learn about the current trends in the practice of Product Management, hear unique approaches to common product problems, and gain knowledge that they could apply the very next working day. Enter ProductCamp – there is one keynote speaker followed by 9 breakout sessions that are selected by the conference attendees and presented by their peers.

What are the breakout sessions?

This year we are adding panels and workshops as options for our breakouts, in addition to our usual presentation format.

Breakout sessions are 1 hour long and they are presented by your fellow attendees. All breakout topics are submitted by attendees, and then one month before event day they open up for voting by all ProductCamp attendees. Two weeks before event day the sessions are announced so our presenters have time to prepare their breakout content.

Breakout topics vary in what they cover however they are all educational and related to product management in some way. We don't permit pitching or selling of any products, services, books, etc.
