High-profile speakers to share insights on success in the app business at Mobile Photo Connect

Speakers from VSCO, Perfect Corp. and Funimate featured in How to succeed in the photo app business panel.

Mobile Photo Connect (October 25, San Francisco), the premier conference for the mobile photo ecosystem, today announced that senior executives from three marquee companies will share their insights during the “How to succeed in the photo app business” session: VSCO, Perfect Corp. and Funimate.

Given the ever-changing dynamics of the iOS and Android app stores, tactics and strategies that were key to success in the past are no longer guaranteed to attract new downloads, let alone increase repeat engagement, grow in-app purchasing revenues, or otherwise boost monetization of one’s photo or video app user base.

Mobile Photo Connect will feature a panel of high profile, highly successful app developers to spark a conversation on how to successfully work through the app stores, and how to generate long-term value from their mobile photo or video app user base.

The panelists are:

· Bryan Mason, COO of VSCO

· Wayne Liu, GM and VP of Business Development of Perfect Corp.

· Kemal Ugur, Co-Founder & CEO of Funimate

Under the umbrella theme of “Shaping the world of smart mobile imaging” the 2016 edition of Mobile Photo Connect will offer the following “no-PowerPoint allowed” panel discussions, in addition to its renowned “show-and-tell” sessions, other state-of-the art presentations, and ample networking time:

· How to succeed in the photo app business

· The Next Big Thing: user-generated VR content

· Monetizing photo apps through mobile output

· The future of visual story telling

· The Mobile Photo Connect Awards, in which a panel of prominent industry movers and shakers will reveal which of the 30 photo and video apps demoed in the conference’s signature show-and-tell sessions stood out
