On October 18-19, 2018 we gathered passionate product people from over 50 countries around the world in London for two days of learning, sharing, and honing our craft. Thank you for joining us and making it another incredible and memorable conference! It started with a day of workshops and product leadership discussions before the main event – a day of 10 incredible keynotes from Kim Goodwin, Roan Lavery, Ryan Freitas, Emily Webber, Joe Leech, Ivy Ross, Rik Higham, Sally Foote, Richard Banfield, and Janice Fraser.
A massive thank you to the amazing Mind the Product team for making it another incredible conference – from our crew, volunteers and production and venue staff to our sponsors. Above all though, thanks to our awesome speakers for getting the conversation started and to our passionate audience for keeping it going late into the night!
With 500 attendees in our deep dive workshops and leadership forum, 1,720 attendees in the hall for the conference itself, and over 20 million impressions on twitter, #mtpcon London trumped our own San Francisco conference to take the crown as the biggest product conference in the world. Thanks to all that engagement and passion we also think it’s the best – check out our recap video above, or the write-ups and audience reactions below and you’ll see that we’re not the only ones that think so!
See you next year in Singapore, Manchester, Hamburg, San Francisco, and London!

Wonderful and excellent couple of days at #mtpcon. One of the best curated conferences I’ve ever been to, and on a personal note the @mindtheproduct crew are just some of the best people I’ve ever had the honour of meeting

What an amazing day I had. Thank you to everyone at #mtpcon for creating a truly special event, where I can say things that I think are important, and perhaps a bit risky. So much appreciation. ❤️🙏💪
