The Appy Hour is open to individuals, organizations and corporations. All applicants whose apps are selected will have the opportunity to attend the conference at their own expense and interact with potential users, get feedback, cultivate new ideas and connections, as well as make contacts that can potentially help elevate the knowledge about and use of the app.
