Thank you London - Apps World returned last week for its fifth year!

Apps World landed last week at the ExCeL London for its fifth successful year with over 300 exhibitors. Featuring two days of top level content delivered by more than 250 speakers, networking opportunities and two live hackathons, the flagship Apps World show proved a huge success creating excitement ahead of the German launch in Berlin, April 2015.

We had content covering everything from the latest wearable technology apps, connected car apps, tv apps as well as mobile marketing and strategy workshops, gaming, droid, enterprise and cloud world! Our six free to attend tracks proved a huge hit and were packed with developers on both days with developer world proving particular popular!

Jason Bradbury rocked our Developer World stage with his keynote on your wearable future giving us a valuable look at the future of wearable technologies across a variety of industries including; sports and fitness, fashion and medical. Other top level speakers from the apps ecosystem to discuss the future of apps including; gaming legend Peter Molyneux (Lionhead Studios), Kevin Harrington (Shark Tank) and Takeshi Idezawa (LINE).

Apps World also played host to The Apps World and Razer Nabu Hackfest with 1st prize winners walking away with a Razer Blade 14” Laptop, a Parisian Experience, driving track day and over £1000 in Amazon Vouchers. The winner of “Best Overall Hack” was Shush who entered the IBM Travel Smarter in London brief with their intelligent application that utilises a network of mobile devices equipped with microphones to recommend smart routes for cyclists with minimal noise and disruption.

Apps World founder Ian Johnson said: “In just the five years we have been running our flagship show in London we have seen an incredible amount of development and growth within the industry. This year we drew record audiences for our top level keynotes and shone the spotlight on the talented start up community who we are excited to see at our next show. Following this year’s success we are excited to be launching the event in Berlin for April 2015, allowing a whole new audience to experience Apps World.”

Thanks to everyone who attended, spoke, sponsored or exhibited and don’t forget to join us as we return Apps World North America to San Francisco and bring Apps World Germany to Berlin for the first time in 2015!
