Top 10 Reasons You Should Join Us at INDUSTRY: The Product Conference in September

We did a quick count and found 437 reasons that product people should join us at the Global edition of INDUSTRY: The Product Conference next month. For the sake of time, though, we wanted to share ten of them…

  1.  Make new friends from all over! This year’s attendees represent 38 states and 13 countries representing a diverse array of companies, including The Home Depot, BMW, eBay, Capital One, Chick-Fil-A, and others.
  2. Meet the originators. Architects of popular frameworks like the Design Sprint and Jobs to be Done will be speaking and giving special hands-on workshops (psst, still a handful of slots left which just opened up!)
  3. Get caffeinated! If you’re the type that needs your coffee — all the time — you’ll feel at home at INDUSTRY, with our complimentary barista-staffed coffee bar serving mochas, lattes, and more.
  4. Bring home the notes.  Every year at INDUSTRY, we hire a professional journalist and designer to take notes so you don’t have to. A nicely compiled ebook will be waiting in your inbox the day after the conference ends. Yes, really.
  5. Grab the swag. Your pass to INDUSTRY includes a commemorative t-shirt, a book written by one of our speakers, and more.
  6. Learn from the best.  Jason Fried of Basecamp, Jessica Tiwari of Upwork, and 20+ other product leaders from Walt Disney Imagineering, Comcast, Walmart, and elsewhere will take the stage.
  7. Spot a celebrity!  You may have seen him in The Hate U Give, Selma and other award-winning films… or heard his Grammy award-winning music.   At INDUSTRY, we’ll be joined by Common, who will be taking the stage for a very special fireside chat.
  8. Kick back and relax.  Your pass to INDUSTRY includes admission to two different social events, and on-site happy hours on both days (along with breakfast and lunch on both days of the conference).
  9. Share your expertise.  There are 24 intimate small group discussions that take place at INDUSTRY, as well as other attendee dinners that you can participate in.
  10. Experience The Land!  If you’ve never been to Cleveland before, expect to be surprised. It’s been a trendy addition to many lists lately, including best foodie citiesbest beer cities, and was even called “The Coolest Place You Never Thought to Visit.
