For the last three years, Appcelerate has run on the final day of The Open Mobile Summit and has garnered significant attention from Silicon Valley and other hot spots of mobile ingenuity. This year will see over 250 senior executives assemble to hear from the mobile industry’s hottest app publishers including Pinterest, Shazam, HotelTonight, CBS Interactive, Trulia, Poshmark, Glu, Pandora and many others as they give their insights into the mobile user experience, innovations in monetization strategies and how to work the levers of engagement and scale.
Andrew Pym, the event organiser has said, “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the speaker line-up and the list of delegates that we have attracted. Since the birth of the first ‘App Store’ the industry has blossomed and has grown into the multi-billion dollar business it is today.”
