AppExpo 2015 sees thousands attend in third year running

About 2500 people attended this year’s AppExpo at MICT Park February 19-20.

The event, aimed at an industry audience, saw steady levels of attendees over last year, according to Yangon Heartz Media CEO U Zaw Zaw Myo Lwin. The expo puts a wide range of tech community members in one place, gathering the likes of software houses, developers, and software importers and connecting them with startup freelance developers and more, AppExpo’s website said. Exhibitors ranged from Samsung to local startup, Nex, according to its website.

“I saw Ho Ho De De application, which links taxi driver and passengers, and I saw Happy application [for] health, beauty, news and more,” said Ko Kyaw Phyo, an App Expo 2015 attendee.

While a “Best application 2015” competition had been in the works – and received more than 30 submissions – U Zaw Zaw Myo Lwin said since professionals and beginners ran in the same category a winner could not be named.

In its third year running, AppExpo will return next year “with a unique plan”, U Zaw Zaw Myo Lwin said.
