When MTP Engage comes to Hamburg again, we’ll have a great line-up of hugely talented speakers.

The keynote talks will cover broader & more general topics in English. The interactive sessions will get closer to the day-to-day work, helpful frameworks, and methodologies as well as reflect on the keynotes. Many of these sessions will be held in German but we will make sure that there is at least one English session at any one time for the international product community.

Plan for a day packed with inspiration, learning, and networking. We'll open our doors at 8 am, start the program at 9:30 am, and after the final keynote (with the amazing Marty Cagan) we'll wrap up at 6 pm. The official afterparty will kick off straight after the conference, so be sure to stay for food, drinks, and music!

We look forward to seeing you again in Hamburg in May!
