ProductCamp is a participant-driven, collaborative conference on topics related to Product Management, Product Strategy, and Product Marketing. All participants should come prepared to present a topic or run a group discussion. On the day of ProductCamp, all attendees cast their votes for sessions and presentations they’d like to attend.

ProductCamp has its heritage in BarCamp which is an international network of user-generated conferences (or unconferences). They are open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants.
