These photos were taken on day two of the B-to-B mobile application trade show, APPNation III. One common denominator I have noticed at every trade show I have attended over the years is that the day after a good party, there will be lower attendance the next morning. This held true on day two of APPNation III, however, that did not slow down the flow of information coming from the various panels and workshops or the enthusiasm of the attendees that came out. This was an informative event and I look forward to attending the next one.
These photos were taken on day one of APPNation III. APPNation III Conference and Expo was held November 30 through December 1, 2011 at the Concourse Exhibition Center of the San Francisco Design Center. As the name implies, APPNation is a B2B trade show for all things dealing with mobile applications. If you are a developer or want to learn to monetize mobile applications, this is a series of shows you should consider attending.
Day one included a keynote by Doug Purdy, Head of Developer Relations with Facebook. This was followed by workshops, panels and discussions covering topics such as growing the app economy, advice on getting your app discovered and how to monetize them. The expo had a wide variety of exhibitors, including Verizon, Mastercard, Windows Advertising, Flurry, Millennia Media and Playhaven. There were plenty of smaller companies, showing off their new apps and offering ways for you to make money in the mobile application market.

This third APPNation Conference will be held November 30 through December 1, 2011 at The Concourse Exhibition Center which is part of the San Francisco Design Center, located at 635 8th Street, San Francisco, CA. I attended APPNation last April and found it to be quite valuable since we are just beginning to get involved in the mobile application market.
AppNation Conference is a B2B trade show, specializing in the mobile application market. When I attended last April, the thing that impressed me the most was the non-stop action. A quick look at the agenda for this upcoming event shows that we are in for more of the same. From the time the show starts at 9:00 AM until it ends, around 6:00 PM, there are keynotes, seminars, workshops and panels. These cover a wide range of topics including the monetization of mobile applications, the effect of HTML5 in the application marketplace, social networks, gaming and more. The challenge at the last APPNation Conference was trying to decide which workshop or seminar to attend. It is apparent that this will be the challenge for APPNation III as well. Continue reading
