The (less than) two month countdown is on for the product-led festival of the year.
This September, forward-thinking leaders in product, IT, digital transformation, and beyond will gather in downtown Raleigh to learn and exchange ideas to push their craft forward. Pendomonium is something we at Pendo look forward to all year as an inspiring, energizing experience—but don’t just take it from us.
Here’s what some of our Pendomonium 2021 attendees had to say about last year’s event:
- “The event totally blew me away. I had so much fun and learned a lot about Pendo and got to nerd out about data with other data nerds.”
- “I left feeling productive, inspired, and confident our team has the ability to use Pendo in really impactful ways.”
- “The food was excellent, the speakers were wonderful, we did some great networking, and really enjoyed ourselves without it feeling like ‘work.’ It was not a wasted day.”
If you need more convincing, below we’ve highlighted eight of the top reasons to attend this year’s Pendomonium. We hope this leaves you as excited as we are to come together in Raleigh for three days of education, thought leadership, and connection.

1. Build the schedule of your (product-led) dreams
With more than 30 sessions and four dedicated tracks, you’ll be able to build a schedule that reflects what’s top of mind for you and your organization. From unlocking efficiency and increasing adoption to delighting users and using data to make better decisions, there will be no shortage of product-led education, best practices, and tips to go around. (Stay tuned for a future blog post announcing the full Pendomonium schedule!)
2. Connect with familiar and new friends
Pendomonium is back to being two (or three!) days, which means there are even more opportunities to meet and mingle with your peers. Maybe you’ll see a former colleague or someone you hit it off with at last year’s event. Even better: You’ll get to expand your network and connect with new faces. This year’s indoor-outdoor format is the perfect setting for personal development, professional networking, and connecting with other like-minded, product-obsessed people.
3. Level up your Pendo skills
If you’re looking to dig deeper into Pendo and sharpen your skills, Pendomonium is the place to be. Through hands-on demos, technical breakout sessions, and full-day workshops, you’ll experience the power of Pendo and get insights straight from the experts. Whether you’re new to Pendo or have been using the platform for years, you’ll come away with deep knowledge and tactical best practices you can start leveraging with your own product.
4. Draw inspiration from industry leaders
In addition to the more tactical breakout sessions, Pendomonium will feature sessions and keynotes aimed to educate and inspire—brought to you by product-led experts, industry luminaries, and notable thought leaders. You won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to grow your skill set and draw inspiration from the most exciting movers and shakers in product and digital transformation today.
5. Experience everything Raleigh has to offer
This year’s Pendomonium will take place at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, one of Raleigh’s most innovative, artistic, and culturally iconic institutions. Outside of festival programming, you can also explore more of what Raleigh has to offer—from Carolina barbecue and authentic Southern cuisine to a burgeoning downtown and nearby cultural institutions.
6. Strengthen your team’s connection
There’s nothing quite like being in person with your colleagues to learn together, share ideas, and strengthen connections that, these days, are primarily fostered on Zoom or Teams. Pendomonium is the perfect way to bring your team together and experience everything the festival has to offer together. We’re even offering a group ticket option, where if you buy three passes, you’ll get one free.
7. Get certified to make your skills official
During the first day of Pendomonium, we’re offering three optional training courses that you can add to your experience. Get certified in Pendo with our Pendo Essentials Certification Course, or as a next step, take our Pendo Admin Course. There’s also Mind the Product Foundations, an overview course that helps product managers develop a broader understanding of their role. You can find more details about these courses here.
8. Unwind and hit the dance floor
It wouldn’t be Pendomonium without an epic celebration—and at Pendo, that always includes music. We’re closing out the festival with a product party for the ages, fit with live music and plenty of opportunities to show off your dance moves.
