On 28th October this year we had our 6th ProductCamp Berlin with nearly 200 participants!
Remember that bunch of questions we asked you during registration? Sorry for that, but hey, here you have the answers put together giving an idea of what the crowd was like (only attendees).
Here is a break-down of the roles that attended this event:
And where you were coming from.. We are thinking on how to bring people from further away moving forward, so that we can exchange more between people that aren’t necessarily part of the product scene in Berlin:
As you might know, we have been charging 10 Euros entry fee since 2014. We have started to do this, because we had a huge no-show-rate at ProductCamp 2013, when only 65% of registered attendees showed up.
We wanted to discourage registrations that lead to now-shows, but still wanted to be not-for-profit by donating all registrations fees to charity. (Learn more about this decision here).
The choice of which charity we gave the money to was drawn in a raffle amongst all participants of ProductCamp. The person who won the raffle could chose the charity.
In total, we have donated 4.452,90 EUR in the last 3 years. Here are the amounts we donated, and who chose which charity: Read more →
We are delighted to introduce you to this year’s main sponsor, Leanovate GmbH. Here’s a special message from their team:
“We are extremely pleased to be the main sponsor of ProductCamp Berlin, which we truly believe is a wonderful place to meet people who share the same passion for product, online and technology in Berlin that we have.
For Leanovate, it’s all about Agile. But what does this actually mean to us? Well, a friend recently described us as being a symbiosis of coding and coaching, and that really hits the nail on the head. We work hands-on to coach and train your team in the fields of software development, product management and organisational development.
Good news: this year we will be back with another ProductCamp Berlin in October. Please mark and save the date in your agenda:
Saturday, October 28th (Save this event to your calendars: .ics file)
As every year, it will be an event that is made possible by sponsors and volunteers, and will run on a Saturday morning through to the early evening, giving you lots of time to meet, greet, learn and discuss. We will likely gather for drinks and some more casual networking after the day, so keep your evening free as well.
The registration is ‘First come, first serve’, based on your location (in Berlin / outside of Berlin). We highly recommend that you register for the event shortly after the registration opens to secure your attendance. Sign up to our newsletter – will send another reminder right before we open registrations.
10 € Registration Fee
This year again, we will charge a small non-refundable registration fee of 10 €. Like many other barcamps, want to avoid to suffer too many no-shows that happen when we don’t charge for the event. We will donate the registration fees to charity. Please read here for further details.
Interested in volunteering?
Please note that ProductCamp Berlin is a non-commercial community-driven event organised by a small army of volunteers.
