Following three years of successful Apps World shows across several continents, this is the first time Apps World has travelled to San Francisco.

Apps World also includes orchestrated speed networking sessions on both days, and an official show party at The Mezzanine, one of San Francisco downtown’s most popular venues, on the evening of Thursday 7 Feb.

Apps World founder and Six Degrees MD Ian Johnson said: “San Francisco hasn’t let us down in terms of enthusiasm. With over 6,000 pre registered attendees, this is looking set to be one of our best shows. The depth of technical expertise among the people we’ve been dealing with has been highly impressive, and we’re looking forward to meeting a lot of people, learning about where the apps industry is heading and the opportunities it has in store.”
