SAN DIEGO, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On September 12 and 13, 2013 The AppShow together with CONNECT will present two full days of networking, business development, sessions, speed meetings, receptions and events at the San Diego Convention Center. The Funding, Discovery and Monetization Conference is a pivotal event for the digital media industry.

Together with CONNECT, The AppShow is offering special pricing and an exciting competition for all incubator companies nationwide. The competition will give start-ups a significant boost in discovery and networking at two AppShow main events: The Funding, Discovery and Monetization Conference, September 12-13, 2013 and The AppShow January 29 through February 1, 2014 also at the San Diego Convention Center.

The competition is simple and invaluable as it promises lucky participants access and discovery in their targeted markets:

First, each incubator/hatchery will sign up as many incubator companies in their building for the special price of $150 per person (regular price $995.00US). The incubator with the most companies registered to attend The Funding, Discovery and Monetization Conference wins the following:

  1. A free booth at The AppShow in January 2014 – to be used and rotated however they please;
  2. Special recognition for the start-up companies at the conference and The AppShow;
  3. Sponsor logo exposure and special recognition at The AppShow 2014 for the incubator company;
  4. Press releases and updates announcing the winners.

"For a start-up company, or a company within an incubator this is the very best business development opportunity, offering them participation in a high-quality event for such an amazingly low price," states Andrea Downs, President of Coastal Communications. "It is our mission to help, support, and partner with these entrepreneurs that are providing new technology for the future. We are their resource and aim to stretch their marketing dollars and provide them with productive business development that will draw maximum exposure to their company."

"These entrepreneurs will connect with investors, funding sources and network with future partners for success. By giving them a larger presence at both the conference and the tradeshow: The AppShow, we are offering them 'A Golden Ticket' of chances and opportunities they may not have had otherwise."

Many events are planned for the start-ups at both shows, including speed meetings: 15 minutes in front of qualified investors and funds, giving the start-ups a rare opportunity to meet with top-notch executives. A special program at The AppShow awaits them that will feature their company, promoting and gaining them exposure and discovery.  It will essentially "put them on the map" amidst the chaos and expansion of the digital media space.

"We are very excited to present this one-of-a-kind conference in the digital media space," says  Downs. "This space is booming and our events attract every type of company from application developers, mobile providers, enterprises as well as start-ups and technology solutions. With our partner, CONNECT, we offer even more qualified investors and business professionals. The Funding, Discovery and Monetization Conference and The AppShow are absolutely both must-attend events."

Sessions include keynote addresses by industry experts, as well as experts in monetization strategies ranging from traditional to out-of-the-box solutions and full case studies.

The AppShow is providing a special discounted rate for incubator, hatchery and start-up companies as a way to support their entrepreneurial efforts.
