Product Managers Teaching Product Management

Product Management Educational Conference (PMEC East) brings focus to the careers of Product Managers.

Product Managers Teaching Product Management
Sacramento, CA, October 26, 2006 --( Who are the best educators of product managers? Where can a new or a seasoned product manager go for insight, education and networking? Where can a product manager find all the tools, educators and cohorts to make the job easier? These things are the main focus behind the Product Management Educational Conference presented by the Association of International Product Marketing & Management.

This two-day conference has been a much-needed gathering place for the last four years – for not only new product managers - but also for seasoned veterans and those working in complementary roles. They all recognize the importance of effective product management. Attendees in the past have come from a variety of industries and companies including Microsoft, A T & T, Bank of America, Oracle, Gartner Group, Dow Chemical, Sankyo Pharma, McKesson, Symantec, and State Farm Insurance.

This conference is preceded by two pre-conference workshops taught by practicing product managers. The Help! I’m a Product Manager workshop will be taught by Mara Krieps and Linda Merrick of Pivotal Product Management. The workshop entitled Product Management – The Devil is in the Execution will be led by John Mansour of ZIGZAG Marketing and Product Management University.

The PMEC East will be held at the Hyatt Harborside at Logan International Airport in Boston, MA and will run from November 8 through 10, 2006. PMEC East 2006 also boasts a lineup of other dynamic speakers and topics sure to recharge and jump-start the creative juices in any product manager or brand manager. For those busy product managers who are unable to carve out two full days from their calendar or for those who can’t get the budget for the conference – there is an answer. The conference will feature free public sessions and a free Networking Expo. Free sessions run from 1:00pm to 5:00pm on Thursday Nov. 9, followed by the free Networking Expo from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. On Friday Nov. 10, the public sessions will run from 9:00am to 2:30pm.
