On November 15th, 2015 more than a 140 product people from Amsterdam and beyond gather for the one and only unconference for product managers, product marketing managers, entrepreneurs and others with passions for product, online and IT in the Netherlands.
TravelBird is so kind to host this years ProductCamp Amsterdam. It’s a young and successful travel company at the Keizersgracht 281. We’ve checked out the venue and it’s perfect for the ProductCamp we know and love.

Looks different? Read about our new registration procedure.
We hope you saved the date (November 15th), because registration for ProductCamp Amsterdam 2015 has officially opened!
This year’s registration is a bit different from previous years, so please read below how to get your ticket.
Small Entrance Fee
Over the years we’ve grown to an amazing 150 attendees, and so did our need for sponsors. In order to plan an event like this even better and get a better sense of who is attending, other ProductCamps we talked to (like the one in Berlin) have actually had great experiences asking for a small entrance fee.
So this year, following suit with other PCamps, we decided to ask for a small entrance fee (10 EUR).
Of course – also thanks to the very generous contributions from our sponsors – everything during the event will be free as always: from the coffee, snacks, and lunch, to the closing drinks.
We certainly hope this doesn’t deter you from participating! We’re also very open to feedback, so please contact us if you have any questions or remarks.
(Super) Early Birds
The first 50 people to register get a bit of a discount, so get ’em while they’re hot!
20 Super Early Birds can get tickets at 5 EUR each, and 30 regular Early Birds for 7 EUR. After that the regular tickets go for 10 EUR.
See you November 15th, 2015
More information will become available in the coming weeks and we’ll keep you posted through the website, our newsletter and Twitter. For now, please register and mark the date in your agenda :).

ProductCamp is an unconference, which means you as participants create the afternoon program. You all determine the content of the sessions, which is a great way to address topics that are relevant to you, and share knowledge with one another. We know that good sessions are the main reason people attend ProductCamp, that’s why we need you!
What’s a session?
- You give a presentation about a a topic you’d like to share your knowledge on (and discuss)
- You have a topic you’d like to know more about, then you can host a group discussion
Don’t be shy, you’d be suprised how relevant your work experience and knowledge can be for others. Some examples from previous editions:
- Scrum & Specifications
- Product Lifecycle management
- Learning from customers
- Lean startup usability
- Implementing Minimal Viable Product.
Pitching your idea
Before lunch, everyone will have the opportunity to pitch their sessions, and then we will put together the session schedule for the afternoon. There will be three parallel tracks, so there is plenty of opportunity to host a session.
ProductCamp is an unconference, which means the participants create the program. You all determine the content of the sessions, which is a great way to address topics that are relevant to you, and share knowledge with one another. We know that good sessions are the main reason people attend ProductCamp, so this year, we’d really like to help everyone get ready for the sessions.
First of all, what format should a session be? It’s up to you. If you want to prepare a formal presentation, that’s great. If you want to have a group discussion, that’s also a very good option. We will provide you with some tips on how to facilitate such a discussion.
Second, what topics can/will be covered? To allow some pre-event discussion about topics, we have set up a uservoice forum (follow the link). We noticed that attendees are often eager to learn about new topics, but are more shy about sharing their knowledge. So, we often get a lot of ideas for topics people would like to hear someone with experience speak about. This is not a problem. Seeing that a lot of people want to learn about a certain topic, it might motivate an attendee with some experience in that specific topic to host a session. Or, this could turn into a group discussion, which can also be very fruitful.
To give you some inspiration, here are some of the topics that were mentioned by the PMs that we spoke to during the interviews discussed earlier: marketing; API’s; pricesetting; customer development; scrum: maintaining backlogs, how to go from large epics, to smaller stories and to details; how to get the best work out of your team; the best way to collaborate with business development; and how to get sales on board.
We ‘re eager to find out what you would like to learn more about, so head over to our UserVoice forum now and start adding.
On the day itself, we will give everyone a moment to pitch their session ideas and then we will vote and plan the session schedule.
