How to choose the most appropriate product management event to attend?

Going back to face-to-face interaction after a couple of years is important to our career development and that’s the number one reason to choose a few events to attend in person in 2024.

Here are a few tips to choose the best product events to go to this year:

  • Research the speaker lineup: choose an event with a lineup of product authorities, and people you follow and admire. That’s the first step to filtering which events to attend.
  • Compare prices: check all the prices and packages available to evaluate the best options.
  • Check out previous reviews: read what people say about previous editions, as it can be a great way to learn what to expect from each event.
  • Prioritize your career: rank what’s important for your career development and learning curve, and pick product conferences with workshops and related panels.
  • Evaluate the location: pick a location that suits you when it comes to costs and importance. 

And in case you still don’t feel comfortable with face-to-face events, you may choose events that offer an online option.

Here is a list of top conferences to inspire you, loosely organized by region and date.
