The signs are everywhere. Mobile technology is taking over the world of interconnected computing, spurring development of an apps universe that is the rightful Internet successor to the World Wide Web.

APPNATION is the first conference to focus entirely on the business of apps and their transformative impact on consumers and enterprise technology, devices, commerce, media and social interaction. APPNATION will launch their inaugural TV 3.0 Summit as a new conference exploring TV apps and Social TV.

Thousands of developers, carriers, product/service providers, buyers and investors attended the first three APPNATION conferences in Fall 2010, Spring 2011 and Winter 2011. Each event brought together the key players representing the diverse app and connected device ecosystem to discuss the evolving business challenges surrounding social and mobile apps across all devices and platforms including smartphones, tablets, social media platforms, internet-enabled televisions, and the unending stream of emerging tools and technologies. Plus this conference is an exciting two-for-one event combined with a timely new conference exploring all things connected to TVs, TV apps, Over-The-Top (OTT) applications, and Social TV.
