Every year you realize there’s yet another product management conference you’ve missed.
Sometimes that’s fine because you can still find the talks online.
But in most cases, you missed the chance to meet other fellow PMs and see your favorite speakers live.
And this year will be different.
We’ve put together a list of the product management events you must attend in 2023 so you can book your tickets early.
ProductWorld is a global event for product managers that overlaps DeveloperWeek. This makes it an ideal fit for anyone working on developer-oriented or open-source products. The event spans multiple days and covers the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities in product management.
ProductWorld features over 50 speakers from leading companies, including Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft. Attendees can learn from case studies, workshops, and panel discussions, and network with other product professionals.
Some of the coolest talks lined up for 2023 focus on new product management software and technologies, usability and interface design, the product development lifecycle, and more tracks around growing your career as a PM.
ProductCon is a free, one-day product management event focused on helping product professionals build better products. The February event will be held in London, but if you miss this, you can attend the online one in July. In fact, Product School organizes four different ProductCon conferences throughout the entire year, and all events are streamed online.
Attendees get the opportunity to network with other product managers, learn from industry experts, and discover the latest tools and resources to help them in their roles. The agenda is full of big names you need to see live. The most notable talks include:
This product management conference is held across three days and includes roughly 16 core talks with audience-led Q&A.
Over 800 product designers and managers attend the event every year in Salt Lake City. They’re there to discover new ways of working together and get inspiration and tools to grow their careers in UX or product management.
Speakers from organizations such as ServiceNow, Pluralsight, and Fullstory will discuss their experience building products beyond the idea stage. The conference is a perfect fit for anyone who needs one go-to yearly event where you get to meet other industry professionals and share your experiences with building better products.
Besides this, you can join their workshop series, which invites UX and product managers to take part in networking dinners and hands-on practice.

The conference provides a platform for attendees to network and collaborate with each other, as well as learn from some of the best minds in the industry. It's worth considering if you're looking for an opportunity to keep up with trends and stay up-to-date with the latest trends and technologies.
If you can't make the in-person events, INDUSTRY also offers a Virtual edition each Spring and Fall as well.
From the Organizers of INDUSTRY: The Product Conference — the New York Product Conference is New York's longest running annual conference for product managers. Spend an entire day in Midtown Manhattan with some of today's top product managers and product leaders.
With keynote talks, interactive discussions, and today's top technology platforms demoing, the New York Product Conference is the place to be for a single-day product experience in the Springtime.
The Forrester’s B2B Summit North America is a conference that has business leaders discussing the latest trends in B2B marketing and technology. Attendees can expect to gain insights into the latest innovations in data-driven product management, leadership strategies, and more.

These events are commonly held yearly, but their official dates haven’t been confirmed yet.
Mind the Product organizes some of the most notable events all product managers should attend. Their annual flagship conferences in San Francisco and London attract thousands of attendees each year, but you might just get lucky if they decide to hold a regional event near you [last year, it was Hamburg!].
Speakers at this event often tackle some of the coolest topics you won’t find at other conferences. Here are some of last year’s:
Want to attend online? For every event, Mind the Product members get access to all keynote talks and breakout session videos.
Atlassian hosts quite a few events throughout the entire year. The Atlassian Summit is the flagship event in their series. It brings together leaders, innovators, and thinkers from various industries, making it a conference you must attend or re-watch regardless of your niche (although we’ll admit they’re more than a perfect fit for anyone working with Agile principles).
Summit helps product managers discover solutions, skills, and ideas that help them change how they collaborate and build products. Each year, there’s a different core theme to get you excited. Last year was focused on modern team requirements, creating a better work culture, and applying the principles of open work management.
SaaStock is THE event for any product professional in the SaaS space. This global conference provides attendees with actionable content and networking opportunities. You’ll hear everything about how other companies grew their products and learn tried-and-tested strategies to scale your own SaaS product.
To get you ready for the event, we’ve picked the most captivating talks from previous years:
Take your career to the next level with the Chief Product Officer Summit, one of the most influential meetups that should be on the list for any product executive. Join other leaders to share success stories, experiences, and challenges in the growth process.
The event is held annually in San Francisco and London and features guest speakers from some of the largest organizations: Twitter, Google, Uber, Meta, Adobe, American Express, Amplitude, etc. And, by the way, you can still request to speak at one of the future events and get yourself out there!
SaaStr Annual is dubbed the world’s #1 cloud gathering for a good reason: It unites 10,000 cloud and SaaS founders, VCs, and executives. It usually lasts for three days and gives you access to hundreds of workshops and thousands of mentoring sessions. Every company should attend this event, and if you want to scale your role in Product, this is the perfect chance to get some hands-on insights on perhaps growing your own business one day.
The agenda for SaaStr Annual is always super full as it targets different types of professionals, but product-focused topics from past years included:
Product professionals will also be interested in the SaaStr Build event (usually held in spring), which brings to life the stories and learnings from builders.
Not every product management event should be on your list. You simply can’t attend them all – that’s why we highlighted some of the core topics and reasons you should attend each event, so you choose the ones that are right for you.
Our recommendation is to always re-watch the free events and attend two or three of the conferences near you for the networking opportunities. And, of course, don’t forget to grab your chance to speak at some of them too.
