Product Camp Oregon

Forge New Paths & Move Forward Together

Ever wish you could connect with people who understood what you're up against, or ask someone who’s been there for advice? Here’s your chance. Product Camp brings together product owners from near and far for two days of learning, collaboration and creative problem solving.

Surrounded by the Oregon wilderness, we’ll throw our challenges into the ring and dig into them together. There are no keynotes, no presentations, no sticky notes or scratchpads. Just you and a group of cohorts brought together by the Bureau and working towards shared goals.

Talk through user acquisition with newly acquired friends, or hash out your sales strategy in a national forest. Add a stop to your roadmap for Bend, Oregon, and join us for lively discussions, true stories, what to do, what definitely not to do and strategies you can start using right away.

A majority of our camps sell out in advance, so we curate them by application to ensure we allocate tickets fairly and you get the right experience. Apply to attend, or put your name in to stay in the loop. There is no obligation to join us when you apply. Space is limited to 30 people, so don’t wait too long.

What's Included?

$2,999 registration fee includes three nights of accommodations and four meals:

  • Hotel accommodations for the nights of 8/5, 8/6, 8/7
  • Welcome reception on 8/5
  • Two days of moderated discussions and breakouts covering a host of topics you help determine
  • Continental breakfast and full lunch on 8/6 and 8/7
  • Closing reception on 8/7

Why You Need to Be There

An Environment for Innovation. Great ideas don’t happen in meetings or in front of a computer. They show up hiking a nature trail, over dinner or under the stars.

Self-Care for Product Owners. As product owners, we’re constantly sorting through to-dos, bumping up against new challenges and shuffling priorities. Spend some time away from it all, and come back inspired and energized. It’s amazing how much better solutions are when you take time to recharge.

Success Is in the Conversation. Benefit from a collective conversation with people from different backgrounds, niches and experiences.

Implement Change Right Away. Product Camp is focused on real, actionable takeaways. So you can start changing things up as soon as you’re back home.

You Set the Agenda

Camps are all about the conversation. Everyone is a presenter, so rest assured, we’ll talk about the topics you care most about. The value lies in the perspectives you absorb from each attendee. Everyone comes from diverse backgrounds and industry niches, offering perspectives outside your immediate circle of influence.

Potential topics include:

  • Competitive intelligence
  • Company structure and growth
  • Customer needs vs. competitor pressure
  • Product roadmaps, speed bumps and wrong turns
  • User engagement and analytics
  • In-housing and outsourcing
  • Common product mistakes

...and whatever else seems right to you. The goal is to help you solve your challenges, gain inspiration and get back to work with a whole set of ideas to implement immediately.
