There are many reasons why you should register for Apps World Europe now but the fact that the show, which will be held in London’s Earls Court 2, from 22-23 October, promises to be bigger and better than ever is perhaps the biggest reason.
The Apps World Europe show, which this year celebrates its fourth birthday, has doubled in size and will see more than 8,000 delegates visit more than 250 exhibitors for two days of top level networking, meetings, workshop streams and awards. It is THE place to see and be seen for anyone in the apps industry – from developers to mobile marketers. Here are 7 more reasons why Apps World Europe should be top of your agenda and why you really must book your place now:
1) 12 workshop streams
Apps World Europe will offer key note speakers in all the current hottest topics from some of the world’s biggest brands, including McDonalds, Carlsberg and BBC, and covering everything from gaming to mobile marketing and TV and second screen apps
2) More free access to content
There are now five free workshop streams including the developer zone and the return of the Droid World at Apps World Europe. For the first time visitors can also access the enterprise and gaming zones for free
App developers, like a lot of self-employed professions and start-up businesses, will have plenty of funding challenges to consider which often get in the way of work productivity. Obtaining substantial tax credits from HMRC towards your development activities is always going to be of interest.
Myriad Associates, who specialise in R&D tax advisory services, can help software developers with securing tax rebates from HMRC on a no win no fee basis.
Using the HMRC R&D Tax Credits scheme, devs can potentially claim up to 30% of their funding back on their projects, from wages to software expenses.
If your development project didn’t go smoothly – uncertainties, or technical challenges – money could be claimed back. A wide range of developers are eligible; profit or loss making has no bearing on the outcome.
Myriad will be at stand 178 at Apps World, with advisors on hand to discuss how your software development company can potentially receive tax rebates from HMRC. To come along and meet Myriad, book your free exhibition pass here
The apps development world is divided to two – those who know that it’s almost impossible to get a sustainable, loyal and profitable growing user base and those who haven’t released an app yet.
In fact, the mobile app economy has evolved so fast that it’s showing alarming signals of self-cannibalism. On one hand the public’s appetite for new mobile apps is, in a word, insatiable. Mobile Apps are like electronic candy and the public has one heck of a sweet tooth for them. But on the other hand, app developers can struggle to effectively promote their apps to focused, relevant audiences without incurring significant marketing costs. (more…)

The rise of the enterprise app store and in general mobile application management are creating opportunities for companies to mobilize their workforce. Recent reports have indicated that the global mobile apps market is expected to be worth $25billion by 2015, so how are businesses going to capitalise on the mobile revolution?
Enterprise app stores are allowing companies to control employee interactions by managing the apps they install on workplace devices. According to the GigaOM Pro Survey “The Future of Workplaces” 38% of businesses are now using mobile phones, and 43% of businesses plan to better incorporate mobile into their work practises in the future.

It is difficult to overstate the huge impact and growth of App Stores over the recent years. With App stores remaining a lucrative channel for distribution of mobile content, operators are acutely aware of the need to build a strong content ecosystem around them in what is now a massively competitive mobile content landscape. Extending connectivity and data usage will not be enough to compete with the big guns in this space. Operators need to tap into their strongest assets which are their robust relationships with both brands and their subscriber base and devise strategies for app monetisation. (more…)
