Why Pendomonium is the only conference you need to attend this year

Published Jul 11, 2023
Believe it or not, Pendomonium 2023 is only a few short months away. 

This year at Pendomonium, we’re taking a closer look at what it means to break away—highlighting stories of people and products that are doing things differently, featuring a lineup of speakers and entertainers who made history by daring to break away from the pack, and creating immersive activations that’ll inspire you to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

If you work in product, you’re likely not new to the conference scene. And there are a ton of events you could choose to attend each year—we participate in many of them ourselves! But that’s what allows us to confidently say that Pendomonium is unlike any other event out there (I mean, have you ever seen this much pink anywhere outside of the Barbie DreamHouse?!). 

Pendomonium is truly a festival: Packed with educational content to level up your Pendo and product game, connection and networking to advance your career, and immersive experiences that’ll leave you inspired and excited to build the future of product. Let’s take a closer look at why Pendomonium is the only product festival you need to attend this year.

1. Meet attendees from a wide array of disciplines

While Pendo’s roots in product are at the heart of Pendomonium, people working in a wide array of disciplines (at all experience levels) attend and speak each year—including leaders and practitioners from customer success, marketing, engineering, design, UX research, and beyond. This means you’ll have the chance to connect with and gain fresh perspective from diverse teams beyond your own wheelhouse—ultimately enriching the products and digital experiences you create. 

2. Learn new skills—whether you’re a “traditional” or tech company

Even (and especially) if you don’t work in software or tech, Pendomonium is for you. This year, we’ve created an entire track of content to highlight how “traditional” organizations can leverage product-led tactics to adapt to evolving customer needs, elevate their digital experiences, operate more efficiently, and stay competitive amid tough economic circumstances. You’ll hear how-tos and success stories from speakers at companies like The Home Depot, Wolters Kluwer, Coyote Logistics (a UPS company), and more—inspiring you to try similar breakaway tactics in your own organization.

3. Hear from inspiring keynote and breakout speakers

We’ve packed the Pendomonium agenda with dynamic keynotes, panel discussions, breakout sessions, and activations to keep you energized and inspired—while equipping you with the tools you need to thrive in the ever-evolving product landscape. You’ll learn tips for becoming a stronger product leader in the morning, how to ship value (and not just features) in the afternoon, and how to tweak the little things for a big impact in the evening. You’ll also get a crash course on all things AI thanks to leaders from Google Cloud, Spark Capital and OpenAI, Pendo, and more.

4. Connect and network with members of the community

At Pendomonium 2023, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a vibrant community of product professionals—from seasoned veterans to rising stars. You’ll make new connections, kick off new collaborations, and forge new friendships over two days of programming and networking. This is your chance to expand your professional network and surround yourself with individuals who are as passionate about product as you are.

5. Get hands-on training and demos with the pros

For the second year running, we’re offering optional, full-day training courses the day before the festival officially kicks off. Whether you’re looking to solidify your Pendo basics with our Pendo Essentials Certification Course, level up your Pendo implementation with our Pendo Admin Course, or shore up your PM skills with Mind the Product’s Product Management Foundations—you’ll get 1:1, hands-on training with our team of experts (and even leave with a new certification!). Attending Pendomonium is also your opportunity to be the first to see what’s new and coming soon in our platform. You’ll hear about our latest releases, directly from Pendo’s leadership team; see our products in action; and have the chance to demo new features in our expanded Product Experience Zone.

6. Experience unforgettable memories and surprises

From interactive installations and local treats, to pop-up experiences and surprise entertainment acts, Pendomonium redefines everything you thought a conference could be. You’ll collect unique, limited-edition Pendo swag (no boring merch here!); mix and mingle with members of the community; and maybe even take your dancing shoes for a whirl at Pendopalooza, our legendary closing party. And it’s all set in an indoor-outdoor venue in the heart of downtown Raleigh. Here’s what attendees from last year had to say:

  • “I love the festival vibe. It has the value of everything a conference typically has, but the environment makes it a bit more laid back, engaging, and less stuffy.”
  • “The entire vibe of the conference was very upbeat and provided an atmosphere where you felt comfortable talking to and meeting new people.”
  • “Pendomonium blends fun and entertainment with help and practicality. It isn’t just useful, or isn’t just fun. It’s both!”
