It’s ProductCamp Season!

From only 3 events a couple of years ago — Silicon Valley, Austin, Toronto — the number of ProductCamps has grown steadily. In fact, there are 3 events in the next 8 days, and there are 9 events on 3 continents  in the next 2 months! I find that simply amazing.

Here’s a list of upcoming events:

  • ProductCamp Boston – May 22, 2010
  • ProductCamp RTP – May 22, 2010
  • ProductCamp Toronto – May 30, 2010 <== Yeah!
  • (Mini) ProductCamp Minnesota –  June 2, 2010
  • ProductCamp Berlin – June 5, 2010
  • ProductCamp London – June 19, 2010
  • ProductCamp Chicago – June 19, 2010
  • ProductCamp Melbourne – July 3, 2010

You can get more information on our Events page.

And if you’re in the Toronto area, why not come to our event on May 30th?

ProductCamp Toronto – It’s on!

It’s official! ProductCamp Toronto Spring 2010 will be held on Sunday May 30 at the Ted Rogers School of Management at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto.

We will have 3 tracks to help focus content to different audiences who attend.

  1. Product Management 101 —  aimed at people new to Product Management or those who want to learn more about the basics of the topic.
  2. Start me up! — aimed at people who are interested in or involved in startups and want to learn more about how to make those ventures successful
  3. Advanced Product Management and Marketing — while open to anyone, this is  intended for experienced Product Managers and Marketers who want to go deep into topics with others in their field.

Sessions nominated and voted on (see link below) should fall into one of these tracks.

We are open to suggestions for other tracks as well, so speak out if you think there are other areas that you’d like to see covered.

Here are all the important links:

We look forward to seeing you at the event!

ProductCamp Toronto – Oct 4, 2009

In just about 3 weeks, we’ll be hosting the 2nd ProductCamp in Toronto. Last year, at the first event, over 100 people came out to participate in a day of very engaging discussions and talks about topics on product development, product management, marketing, innovation and more. Some of the presentations and notes can be found here.

Pre-register today!

There are already about 150 pre-registrations for the this year’s event!

If  you want to attend, click here to add your name to the list.

It’s free to attend, and lunch is included(!),  so come out and spend a day of engaging thought and discussion with others like you.

Suggest a Session (or Vote for your Favourites)

In the spirit of BarCamp, the day’s sessions will be voted on at the start of the ProductCamp on Oct 4. But if you want to suggest a session, or want to present one yourself, you can do so in advance.

Click here to see the sessions and vote on them, or to suggest new ones of your own.

Become a Sponsor!

A number of companies have already agreed to sponsor the event, including:

  • The Ted Rogers School of Management (providing the venue)
  • Pragmatic Marketing
  • SevenL Networks
  • Greenscroll
  • MI6 Agency

Also, our own Alan Armstrong and his jazz band will play live at the end of day reception.

Thank you to all of these organizations. But we’re looking for more sponsors. Sponsorships are used to pay for lunch and t-shirts for all the participants, as well as materials, signage and other expenses that are incurred.

Your organization’s name and logo will be prominently displayed on the ProductCamp website, on the day’s materials, on the t-shirts, and significant mention will be made of the sponsor’s during the day.

If you’d like to become a sponsor and gain visibility with innovators in the Toronto area, contact us:

  • productcamptoronto at gmail dot com

Volunteer

We’re looking for volunteers to help with some of the logistics during the day. If you’re interested in volunteering,  you can indicate that when you register and someone will contact you.

Twitter – #pct2

Finally, look for the #pct2 hash tag on Twitter. We’ll post announcements via Twitter ahead of the Camp and hope to have some live updates on Oct 4.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
