In just a few years, mobile apps have changed our phones, how we use them, and, ultimately the brand landscape. But how best to accelerate marketers' legitimate involvement in such a direct, personal form of interaction with consumers?

Join Advertising Age and Appolicious for a half-day of panels and discussions with key marketers and developers behind some of the best brand-oriented apps to learn just how they found success, including:

• Efficiently developing and deploying quality, robust mobile applications
• Distributing and developing supporting marketing tie-ins for your apps
• Measuring your success and developing realistic yardsticks for adoption and usage patterns
• Packing value, be it utility or entertainment, into your app to outshine the competition
• Developing customer relationship management and utility concepts to fully engage an energized audience
• Leading customers along a trail of relevant applications and monetizing extended relationships
