Event description
Product to Product is an event for/by product people, bringing you candid conversations about product.

About this Event

We love to talk product at Roadmunk. So, we created a space for product conversations to happen.

This space is called Product to Product. It's a community for product people — and by product people — that's made up of a blog, podcast and IRL meetups.

We've recently debuted the fifth season of our podcast and we're tackling the topic of growing pains (more users, more problems...y'know?). But what happens once the product/product team has scaled?

At this event, we'll be talking to some product leaders to learn about the different pain points of a product/product team at scale. We'll cover different team structures, communication processes, roadmapping best practices, tooling to manage all the user feedback you're getting — just to name a few things.

Come for the free food, stay for the engaging discussion.

Sprout Social is providing an accessible space!

The building has a few automatic doors, automatic turnstiles, and elevators. Sprout employees and building security are able to provide assistance with each aspect of your check-in to ensure everything is accessible.

If you check in between 5:30-6:30, no photo ID is required; a Sprout volunteer will check you in, and direct you to the event space. If you check-in after 6:30, you will need to check-in with building security, at which point photo ID is required.

Restrooms closest to the event space are labeled men's/women's, but a Sprout employee can confidentially guide you to a labeled gender-neutral restroom.
