World Product Day


World Product Day is an annual event to celebrate our craft and community. In 2020 most of us find ourselves under lockdown so we’re going virtual with over 50 live events all over the world on May 27, 2020!

Expect even more great lessons and connections in just one day, as product managers all over the world get together on livestreams and make a ton of noise on the hashtag #worldproductday – leading to a wave of product discussion that will start in Wellington, New Zealand, span 43+ countries, and culminate across the West Coast of North America 20 hours later.

This day will raise awareness of and appreciation for the craft of product management and our global tribe of product people!
