The 2017 shortlisted finalists for the inaugural App Growth Awards, the first awards of their kind to recognise the maturity and innovation within the app marketing ecosystem, have been officially announced today.

A fantastic response drew over 100 submissions from across the world, which an international panel of expert judges have now whittled down to 55 finalists across the 11 different categories.  The vast array of entries from a myriad of companies highlights the growing size of an increasingly sophisticated app industry ecosystem.

The App Growth Awards are being held in conjunction with the 5th annual App Promotion Summit Berlin, and are supported by Priori Data and Taptica.  All the shortlisted finalists will be celebrated and the winners announced at a gala reception, which is being held at the world-famous Hotel Adlon in Berlin on the evening of Thursday 30th November 2017.
