Chennai to host global mobile application summit

The summit will be held in Chennai on May 28-29


The Global Mobile App Summit and Awards (GMASA), a summit on mobile applications to deliberateand showcase latest developments in application development and marketing, will be held in Chennai on May 28-29.

Quoting a Deloitte report published earlier, mobile application downloads were likely to be around nine billion during 2015 in India and would grow higher in the future, as the average data usage per subscriber in the country is expected to get doubled by 2016, said L Hemachandran, co-founder and CEO of Brand Avatar, which is one of the partners organising the event.

The event would look into various aspects of app development and marketing, said CR Venkatesh, managing director and CEO of Dot Com Infoway, who is also president of GMASA. There is a huge opportunity for investors in the growing mobile app industry and most of the B2B opportunities in it remain untapped, which excites an investor, said Sameer Mehta, an angel investor part of The Chennai Angels.
