Another year, another amazing #mtpcon conference! Last week 1,600 passionate product people from 33 countries and 37 states across the US gathered in San Francisco for two days of learning, sharing, and honing our craft. It started with a day of workshops and product leadership discussions before the main event, a day of 10 incredible keynotes from Christina Wodtke, Cindy Alvarez, Leisa Reichelt, Dan Olsen, C Todd Lombardo, Nir Eyal, Mariah Hay, Brant Cooper, Sarah Tavel, and Tom Coates.
A huge thanks to our tireless team for making it all happen – from our crew, volunteers and production and venue staff to our sponsors. Above all though, thanks to our amazing speakers for getting the conversation started and to our amazing audience for keeping it going late into the night.
I learned just as much from the people on stage as from the people off stage… the diversity and the brainpower here is just amazing.C. Todd Lombardo
With 400 attendees in our deep dive workshops and leadership forum, 1,600 attendees in the hall for the conference itself, and over 20 million impressions on twitter (thanks for the tracking Brandwatch!), #mtpcon is indisputably the biggest product conference in the world, and thanks to all that engagement it’s also the best. And we’re not the only ones who think so, check out our recap video above, or the write-ups and audience reactions below!
See you in London in October!

If a conference were a product manager it would be #mtpcon. Start w/ imposter syndrome, find ways to empower your team, ensure you’re building solutions that solve problems that make your users rockstars, wrestle w/ the ethics & meaning of it all, then remember-hey,I can do this!
