We are proud to be part of the first ever World Product Day on May 23, which will feature an incredible 77 local, in-person, events right across the world (


NOTE: Some of the speakers will be presenting in english


In this talk Product Managers will step down and let Product Designers and User Experience experts take the stage.

The intention of this meetup is to get the point of view of these professionals and how they see the relationship with Product Management working at it’s best and when this relationship goes “tits up”.

The goal: To make sure we understand how designers and UX professionals see the relationship with PMs, and how to make the most of it to make great products.

Some questions we will get answered in this talk:

¿How can Product Managers and Product Designers/UX work and collaborate to create great products?¿What, from the point of view of Product Designers and UX, is the line that divides each of the roles?¿Can we get good and bad examples of how this relationship has worked and get insights from those examples?
