The Columbus Product Club is hosting the 2nd Annual ProductCamp Columbus again this year on April 19th at The Vue! Last year's event attracted over 160 UX, Product Managers, Engineers, etc across a variety of industries from start-up's, universities, and large corporations. Frankly, it was awesome!!! We expect this year's event to exceed 200 attendees!

ProductCamp is one of the most cutting edge and important events happening in the Columbus tech community. As Columbus continues to grow as a technology city, education, collaboration, and sharing of best practices becomes so, so important. The Columbus Product Club has built a community of people in product who can help our tech community thrive, and ProductCamp is one of the can’t miss events they organize every year.

What's an Unconference?

An unconference is a conference organized, structured and led by the people attending it. Instead of passive listening all attendees and organizers are encouraged to become participants with discussion leaders providing moderation and structure for attendees.

At the unconference event topics are not predetermined, keynote speakers have not been assigned, panels have not been arranged. Instead, the event lives and dies by the participation of you and other attendees. So whether you come prepared to run a full workshop or presentation, lead a Q&A, or just contribute to an open discussion, all formats are welcome.

“ProductCamp is the place to meet (and learn from) the folks responsible for shaping all of the incredible products coming out of central Ohio.

I sat down and spoke with thought leaders from large multi-billion dollar juggernauts as well as visionary entrepreneurs leading our thriving start-up community.
— Mike Mancuso, Wendy's

Being at a growing product-focused startup, it only made sense to join the Columbus product community at ProductCamp. The biggest takeaway was learning from other people’s firsthand experiences, and what they’d do if they were in my shoes. In short, ProductCamp was the perfect balance of theory and practicality.
