AppConext Auto: Putting you in the driver’s seat to connect with the leaders shaping the future of the connected vehicle
2013 was the year in which Apple and Google Play each surpassed the one million mark for apps available on their smartphone and tablet marketplaces. Now that we’ve turned the page to 2014, where can the mobile industry find the next major app development opportunity as these app stores are overwhelmed with new apps?
The next major app marketplace isn’t on a smartphone or tablet, it’s riding in your car. According to recent industry reports from Juniper Research, the in-vehicle app industry is expected to surpass $1.2 billion in global value over the next three years.
Auto OEM’s and infotainment providers are striving to provide drivers and passengers with a wide range of apps at their disposal to make the in-vehicle experience as informative and helpful as possible. If you’re an app developer, now is the perfect time to learn from and network with these auto industry leaders to better understand their objectives for incorporating in-vehicle apps into cars and infotainment systems.
That’s why we’re bringing these groups together for the AppConext Auto conference focused on in-vehicle apps, taking place in the Motor City area this May.
AppConext Auto offers two action packed days of presentations, panel discussions, and networking opportunities with the innovators that are working to ensure that the next great app marketplace is on four wheels.
From the current platform competition between Apple and Google to the future of fuel efficiency apps, AppConext Auto is committed to delivering the expert insights that you need in order to create a comprehensive connected vehicle strategy for 2014 and beyond.
