Don't miss the inaugural Product
While we've long focussed on product topics at our annual Summit, Proiduct 2019 is the first of our conferences focussed specifically on the needs of product professionals. To make sure you don't miss out in 2019, get on our waitlist!
You'll get the first chance to snap up a ticket.
Product 2019 will be held in the Pavilion at the iconic Arts Centre Melbourne, right on the Yarra in Southbank.
Arts Centre Melbourne,
100 St Kilda Road, Melbourne
With excellent public transport connections right outside, and Flinders Street Station right across the bridge, it's our best connected location yet.
If you're coming from out of town, there are many hotel and serviced apartments style accomodation options in Southbank, and otherwise close by. We have for some time put our speakers up at the Quest Southbank Apartments, and stay there ourselves.

Co-founded and now run by John Allsopp, Web Directions has for over a decade brought together leading developers, engineers, visual, IxD, UX and product designers, Art and Creative Directors, indeed everyone involved in producing web and digital products to learn from one another, and the World's leading experts across this vast field.
We spend our lives thinking about what comes next, keeping up with trends in technology, practices and processes, and filtering the hype, to make sure you don't miss trends that matter, and don't waste time on hype that doesn't.
We promise attending one of our events will leave you significantly better versed in the challenges you face day to day, and in solutions for addressing them.
In 2019, we'll be organising Design, Design Leaders, Code and Code Leaders in Melbourne, and Web Directions Summit, and Culture in Sydney
