MTP Engage Manchester isn’t just one day, and it’s not just about the talks – although they are epic! There’s a host of activities and side events happening around the conference for you to get involved with to help you really make the most of your MTP Engage experience.
The Day Before
Grab one of our final pre-conference workshop seats for the day before the conference. Each deep-dive workshop is led by an expert in their field and will help you to level up your product and UX skills, share experiences with other product people, and you’ll leave feeling ready to make tangible changes to your product practice. Learn more and grab your place.
Make the most of conference day
At MTP Engage, there are plenty of opportunities to network with your peers. However, with over 450 product people in attendance, you may want to start making those connections now, and there are plenty of ways to make sure you’re in the best position to meet others whilst you’re there. Read on to learn how…
Melissa Perri Book Signing
World-renowned product leader, Melissa Perri, has 140 signed copies of her book, Escaping the Build Trap, to give away at the start of the lunch break (12:45). Meet her in person to get your copy. It’s first come, first served and once they’re gone, they’re gone!
Be sure to drop by the Spotlight Stage in-between talks. It’s your opportunity to see the latest product innovations from our exhibitors. You’ll see demonstrations on how our sponsors can help you build better products, and more.
Get up close and personal with some of our keynote speakers at the Spotlight Stage in the breaks. See them on the big stage and then ask any questions you have face to face! It’s a great opportunity to really get the most out of each of the talks you see. The Q&A schedule will be added to the conference schedule soon.
Definitely make time to visit our amazing sponsors in the breaks on conference day – they’re a friendly bunch! They’ll be there all day to chat about how they can help a product person like yourself. Also keep an eye out for what cool swag you can grab, who is hiring, and any competitions you can enter.
The Mind the Product Stand
Your go-to place for all things Mind the Product – find out about all of the different ways that you can meet other product people and really level up your product skills. Learn about our free product meetups worldwide, our jobs board, our leadership program, and our other product management conferences.
And meet our team, who are eager to talk to you about:
- Training – Talk to our trainers about how to enhance your product skills in a hands-on, practical environment. We’ll be there all day to answer any questions you might have about our public workshops and our in-house corporate training options.
- Content – Do you have a product story to tell? Talk to us on conference day about getting it published on mindtheproduct.com
For the first time at MTP Engage, take part in speed networking during the breaks and connect with some new product people. No sign up required, just turn up, first come, first served, and sessions last between 15 and 25 minutes.
Our Slack Community
With over 30,000 members in our Slack group, it’s a great place to chat about what’s important to you, make new connections, & make plans for the conference!
At the conference, you can follow all the action on Twitter, and tweet your impressions and favourite quotes using the #mtpcon hashtag, and our accounts @mindtheproduct and @MTPEngageMCR. But why wait? Start now! Tweet tweet!
After the final talk on conference day, head to the sponsor hall for our afterparty, where you can continue those product conversations – product management is a lonely job, so take advantage of getting together with a plethora of product people who are just as willing to share stories! There will be no need to grab any food beforehand as there will be plenty of food, drink, and fun provided!
