Kagan Media Net is launching AppFest, a live outdoor show with 100 developers and their apps for iOS 4, the mobile application platform for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
The first show is scheduled for Saturday, September 25, in Waltham, MA, with a second show lined up for Saturday, October 23, in Sunnyvale, CA. Each show will feature a unique set of exhibitions, entertainment and ideas. Developers and users can learn more at http://www.AppFest.net .
The purpose of AppFest is to provide a live forum for developers to meet with users in order to improve their products, and understand how their customers use their apps. It will also serve as an opportunity to promote their apps, find new talent, meet potential partners, and learn about new technologies.
iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch enthusiasts can see the latest apps, some of which have been developed locally. They will have an opportunity to see new apps before they buy, know what future releases will bring, and get to know the developers of their favorite apps. There will also be autograph signing, live entertainment, prizes and more.
AppFest will feature pavilions for gaming, entertainment, business, music, arts, education, travel, health and lifestyle, as well as developer support for the corporate community, live entertainment, prizes and much more. Eventually, the show will grow to 10 cities in the U.S. and overseas, according to David Kagan, show manager.
