FAQs

These FAQs apply to the Mind the Product Conferences:

  • Tickets keyboard_arrow_right
    Can I change the details on my tickets?

    Yes, but only the person who purchased the ticket can make these changes on Eventbrite. You are free to change your ticket details up to two days before the event, including name, title, etc. Please make sure these details are correct as they will be what we show on your badge!

     

    To do this, log in to Eventbrite and make the changes, following these instructions. If you can’t reach the person who purchased the ticket in order to get them to change the information please contact us on tickets@mindtheproduct.com and we will help you make the updates.

     

    Can I get a refund?

    We offer a full refund up to one month before the conference. Simply log in to Eventbrite and request the refund following these instructions. As with changes, only the person who purchased the tickets can request a refund.

     

    Can I pay for my ticket(s) by invoice?

    As we are a small team we only offer payment by invoice if you are buying 5 tickets or more due to the additional overhead. Early Bird conference tickets cannot be purchased by invoice. Please also note that no tickets are held/issued until payment of the invoice has been received. Request to pay by invoice by emailing tickets@mindtheproduct.com

     

    • Tickets are not held until payment has been made – there are no exceptions to this.
    • We cannot agree to any terms and conditions associated with Purchase Order numbers or other supplier agreements.
    • We do not fill in supplier detail forms for ticket invoices – if you cannot find details you require on our website – please ask.

     

    Please note: Ticket transfers are not possible for invite-only events such as our Leadership Meetups and Forums. If you need to update any of your own details (Twitter handle, job title etc) for these types of events please contact us on tickets@mindtheproduct.com and we will help you make the updates.

     

    Do you offer discounts for students, startups, non-profits, etc?

    The only discounts we offer are the Early Bird conference tickets (limit one ticket per order), which sell out in a matter of minutes, and the group discounts on General Release conference tickets where we do a 10% discount on 10 or more tickets. The ticket limit for purchasing online is 25. If you require more than 25 tickets please email us at tickets@mindtheproduct.com. Team Discount does not apply to our Early Bird or Last Chance tickets. We do not have any discounts available for group purchases of our workshops or Leadership Forum.

    To ensure you hear about the Early Bird tickets make sure you are part of our Slack channel and receive our newsletter.

  • Visa Applications keyboard_arrow_right
    Can you create an invitation letter for my visa application?

    Absolutely. Fill in your details here and we will issue you an invitation letter. You will need to have already purchased a ticket for us to send you a letter. If your visa application is rejected for whatever reason, you can still request a refund in alignment with our refund policy.

  • Sponsorship keyboard_arrow_right
    How can I sponsor an event?

    Get in touch with sponsor@mindtheproduct.com for more information!

  • Speaker Information keyboard_arrow_right
    Do you have a call for speakers? How can I get on stage?

    We are always on the lookout for great speakers and research extensively to find the right mix and level of speakers to put on the #mtpcon stage. While we don’t do an open call for speakers, feel free to send us suggestions along with a recent video of a keynote talk. Keep in mind that we get numerous applications and are very selective to ensure we provide the best possible content for our audience. We also regularly check local ProductTanks for standout speakers that we could put on stage.

     

    If you are interested in speaking at ProductTank – contact your local organiser or if you want to submit a speaker suggestion for the conference check out our speaker criteria and apply.

  • At the Event keyboard_arrow_right
    How do I stay up to date and meet people in the community around the conference?

    We have a number of ways for you to meet other attendees and engage with events surrounding the conference. Make sure you read the emails that go out in the lead up to the conference to find out what networking app we are using and for extra events around each conference. Join the #mtpcon channel in our Slack Community to hear what others are doing around the conference or to meet other product people going to the event.

These FAQs apply to Mind the Product conferences and workshops in relation to the Coronavirus:

 

  • Cancellations, Alternatives, & Refunds keyboard_arrow_right
    Will Mind the Product cancel any upcoming conferences or workshops due to the Coronavirus?

    We understand the concern around cancelling events due to the Coronavirus. We run two main types of events – our larger conferences which host between 500 – 1800 attendees and our public workshops which host groups of 10-25.

     

    2020 Conferences

    #mtpEngage Hamburg (June 2020)

    We are aware of the ban on large scale events in Germany until the end of August, and as such are extremely sad that MTP Engage Hamburg 2020 will not take place this June as initially planned (this includes our pre-conference workshops and Leadership Forum).

     

    Ticket holders have now been contacted via email with regards to how you would like to manage your current bookings. Thanks for your patience so far, as we’ve worked to arrange these alternatives.

     

    We are excited to announce our brand new online event, #mtpcon Digital – a three-day online conference gathering the best minds in our craft to help push it forward, and a great alternative to MTP Engage Hamburg.

     

    #mtpcon San Francisco (July 2021)

    Sadly, due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, we have decided it makes no sense to gather thousands of product people in person in San Francisco for our conference this year. Instead, we are pivoting the whole conference online, into #mtpcon Digital – a three-day online conference gathering the best minds in our craft to help push it forward.

     

    Ticket holders have now been contacted via email with regards to how you would like to manage your current bookings. Thanks for your patience so far, as we’ve worked to arrange these alternatives.

     

    #mtpcon London (October 2020)
    We have no plans to cancel our London 2020 conference at this time and tickets are still on sale. Although large-scale gatherings are not being run at this time in the UK, it is simply too early to make a call on cancelling this event.

     

    If we get close to the event and are forced to cancel, we will refund all attendees. Please note, we cannot be liable for any travel costs or expenses incurred so please ensure you have the correct cover when making travel bookings.

     

    Standalone Workshops

    Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we have now cancelled all of our in-person standalone workshops for the foreseeable future. We have now started delivering the same value via a new remote interactive format. Buy tickets now.

     

    If you are interested in taking part in a remote workshop but cannot find a relevant session, please register your interest by completing our quick form and we will get in touch with more details on new dates and topics when we have them.

     

     

    Can I request a refund for my conference/workshop ticket?

    You may request a refund to any of our events within the refund deadline. If you are unable to attend due to illness or company travel bans after the refund deadline, we will not be able to accommodate the refund request.

     

    As always, we treat requests after refund deadlines on a case-by-case basis.

     

     

    What is the deadline to request a refund?

    Mind the Product’s refund policy, as per our Terms and Conditions, states that you may cancel your ticket for a full refund up to one month before the date of the event.

     

    However, in light of the Coronavirus, we will be offering temporary flexibility on the time period in which you can request a refund. Until further notice, you may cancel any tickets to a Mind the Product workshop or conference, up to two weeks before the event. Cancellations made before the two-week deadline will receive a refund.

     

     

    If I feel unwell and choose not to attend a future event, can I get a refund?

    If the situation improves and we are running our events in the coming months, as would be the case under normal circumstances, we strongly urge anyone who does not feel well, to not attend our events. Please be respectful of others and sensible about your own well-being. We will be unable to offer a refund should you not attend because you do not feel unwell.

     

     

    Will Mind the Product events be live-streamed?

    We have pivoted our #mtpcon San Francisco conference online, into #mtpcon Digital – a three-day online conference gathering the best minds in our craft to help push it forward. Join us!

     

     

    Will more Mind the Product events be cancelled?

    As the Coronavirus situation unfolds we are (and will continue to) follow the advice of the government and local health authorities to ensure that our events are run with the best interests of all those involved, in mind. We will also be working closely with our venues and will act accordingly.

    If and when events are cancelled, ticket holders will be contacted directly with more information.

  • Health & Safety keyboard_arrow_right
    What is Mind the Product doing to ensure event environments are safe?

    We are making great efforts to stay informed and up-to-date on the latest advice and recommendations regarding Coronavirus and our events.

     

    We strongly recommend that all of our conference, meetup, and workshop attendees also stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak. You can find useful links on the WHO website and should seek more information through your national and local public health authority.

    • If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early and stay home if you feel unwell
    • If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance of visiting a healthcare provider
