Accepted Sessions & Schedule Now Available

  • We have finished tallying up votes and scheduling sessions
  • Check out the detailed Session Schedule including session descriptions, speaker bios and times
  • Times and rooms may change – please check again on the day of ProductCamp

Learn about breakout sessions at ProductCamp, leading a session, and voting.

Unlike other conferences, ProductCamp Boston is an unconference where anyone can propose sessions and then registered attendees* vote on session a few weeks in advance of the unconference.  That’s right – YOU decide which sessions should take place – so you can get the most out of the day.  That’s what makes ProductCamp interesting, relevant to your career, and more educational.

*Anyone can propose a session but only registered attendees can vote.

What is a Session?

Sessions run  45 minutes and can be discussions, presentations, exercises and more.  We discourage product pitches.  Sessions are led by practitioners (ie practicing product managers and product marketers) and consultants/experts.  Examples:

  • A mid-career product marketer shares their company’s unique approach to go-to-market and lessons learned
  • A sought-after consultant presents her research into best practices in product management
  • A hands-on workshop
  • Group brainstorm to solve a common and vexing issue such as how to be a successful product owner in an agile environment
