October 16, 2013 08.51 Europe/London By Robert Briel

With one week till Apps World Europe the show has broken all records and exceeded expectations with more than 11,000 delegates pre-registered and a further 2,000 expected in the final week.

The show, which will take place at London’s Earls Court on October 22 and 23, will comprise two days of conference streams and keynote speakers that include former Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and EA founder Trip Hawkins.
The event has 12 conference streams ranging from gaming to enterprise and droid, five of which are free.

The show will also feature three industry hackfests – Auto Hackfest, TV Hackfest and Apps Hackfest, where developers will be busy coding to win a share of more than £10,000 worth of prizes. Entry to the hackathons, which is free, is still open.

The show will also recognise industry talent with the Appsters, Apps World’s awards event, which will take place at Kensington Roof Gardens on the evening of the first day, hosted by comedian Simon Evans.

Apps World founder Ian Johnson said: “We are delighted with the interest in the event and that for the fourth year in a row we have almost doubled in size. Apps World aims to bring together the very latest in apps developments and thinking under one roof – allowing visitors the chance to see and meet best of breed companies that can help them grow and develop. The apps ecosystem is a hugely exciting, but rapidly growing industry, and staying on top of industry developments is key.”
