About the Event:

Join us this month for a special edition of Mobile Growth Los Angeles focused on Instant Apps! We've partnered up with the Ticketmaster Android team to bring you an in-depth look at how you can supercharge your app for growth with Instant Apps.

A newer technology built by the Android team at Google, Instant Apps allows you to segment portions of an Android app to load immediately when a link is clicked. This is a great way to tease your user with the app experience without forcing the user to commit to downloading the app. Once you've got them hooked, you can reel them into the app using Branch links - which offer an optimal user experience that you can track through the install process. Ticketmaster has done an incredible job building a seamless user experience, and even presented at the Instant Apps reveal this year at Google I/O! We're super excited to hear from Ticketmaster Android team and the Branch Product Engineering team about this innovative new way to drive growth for your app.

Register on our official registration page.
