APPNATION is the largest conference and exhibit in North America focused exclusively on the business of apps and the broader consumer app economy.  The theme of this year's event is: "Discover. Acquire. Monetize".  APPNATION reaches the full long-tail of app developers and publishers from the cool indies all the way up through the largest brands and companies in the world.


Discover. Acquire. Monetize

APPNATION is not a technical conference as our sole mission is to help app developers of all shapes and sizes build great businesses through inspiring keynotes, topical roundtable discussions, and deep-dive workshops that deliver actionable advice and best practices. We focus exclusively on the consumer app economy and our core areas of coverage include:

  • Discovery
  • Distribution
  • Acquisition
  • Monetization
  • App Marketing & PR Strategies

  • Analytics & Optimization
  • Lifetime Customer Value
  • Consumer Insights
  • UI/UX Best Practices
  • Cross-Platform Development


Why is APPNATION moving to CES? This is a win-win as it is a great opportunity for our conference to be an official partner event of CES and a great opportunity for developers of all shapes-and-sizes to meet their peers at APPNATION but also have the opportunity to engage with the global consumer electronics industry as CES attracts over 160,000 attendees and thousands of hardware and content companies as well as leading marketers and ad agencies. As you know, virtually all consumer electronic devices will ultimately be "connected" and this is a unique opportunity to bring the global connected device, content, marketing, and consumer app communities together to network, develop partnerships, and explore new business opportunities.

As an attendee of APPNATION, you are automatically registered for a complimentary CES Exhibit Plus Pass, which grants you access to exhibits, Keynotes, SuperSessions and free conference sessions at the 2015 CES.




The official APPNATION VI Call For Speakers is open until December 1, 2014 although we always encourage everyone to submit as early as possible. Please Click To Hear to File Your Speaker Submission.


We have a wide variety of speaking and exhibit opportunities and we make every effort to guarantee our supporting exhibitors and sponsors thought leadership opportunities as part of valuable, independent content. We also offer, on a case-by-case basis, highly-qualified industry sponsors the opportunity to conduct and lead dedicated, topic-specific, deep-dive workshops and roundtable session on the main-stage. For more on the sponsorship and exhibit opportunities, you may view the full sponsorship prospectus here or you may reach out directly to our Event Chairman, Drew Ianni at
