#mtpcon Digital APAC: An Overview
Billed as “the world’s best online product conference,” #mtpcon Digital APC aims to offer incredible value to anyone involved in building and marketing digital products. It runs between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. SGT on Wednesday, April 14 and Thursday, April 15, 2021. That’s 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Pacific Time for anyone on the West Coast who wants to join.
Two Days Of Discussion and Learning
Each day of #mtpcon Digital APAC includes a series of concurrent breakout sessions, round table discussions and sponsor spotlights in the morning and afternoon, bookended by a keynote speech and Q&A session. Social sessions at the very start and end of each day offer ample networking opportunities on top of the regular breaks throughout the day.
A Tried and Tested Approach to Remote Conference
This isn’t Mind the Product’s first remote rodeo. The community has hosted several #mtpcon digital conferences in the past, and this latest one follows a tried-and-tested formula.
Everything will be hosted on Hopin, an event platform promising a high-quality, seamless experience. The conference’s schedule is also designed to cater for the intricacies of remote working.
First, the conference is scheduled to suit as many different APAC time zones as possible. It doesn’t matter where you are in that part of the world, you’ll find it easy to log in and learn. Second, regular breaks are interspersed between speeches and breakout sessions, allowing attendees ample opportunity to speak with their team, check on kids or grab another coffee.
Learn How to Build Better Products From the Best in the Industry
#mtpcon Digital APAC is on the cutting edge of product creation. There are few better places to learn the latest tips, tricks and industry secrets to build better products. Throughout the conference, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from and network with industry thought leaders and executives from the biggest product companies in the world.
You’ll leave feeling confident to apply what you’ve learned in your own company. But don’t worry if you can’t remember something because you’ll also have access to recordings of all of the speeches and discussions.
The conference may be remote, but it doesn’t lack networking opportunities. There are plenty of occasions to connect across both days of the conference. Breakout sessions and roundtable discussions offer attendees the chance to discuss specific product-related issues. One-to-one speed networking sessions allow attendees to connect with one another in a more intimate setting.
