Welcome


The Kochava Mobile Summit is a 3-day gathering of decision makers and thought leaders in one of America’s most beautiful small towns. Scroll down to see the last year’s agenda and what past attendees have to say about the Summit.



What past attendees have said

I really enjoyed the summit. I think it is the best – not one of – conference I’ve been to. I liked everything from the session content to food and entertainment arrangement. I would definitely recommend the conference as well as Kochava tracking solution to relevant people. The only regret was that I didn’t know Sandpoint is so pretty, otherwise I’d definitely stay a few days longer!

Ivy Yu | Head of US & LATAM, YeahMobi



I get more value from 3 days in Sandpoint with a select crew of mobile marketers than I do from any other mobile conference. The people, content, hospitality, and location make the Kochava Summit a unique event that I will keep coming back to. Look forward to the next one.

Adam Woods | Business Development Manager, Motive Interactive



One of the best times in the year to meet people and learn some great stuff!

Oliver Birch | Director of Marketing, Hothead Games



I thought it was a great show and we were really pleased to be part of it this year so thank you for letting us get involved. The client interaction is much more organic than the big events in Vegas, NYC and SF.

Jon Hudson | VP – App Advertising, Criteo



The content was fantastic, and all the fun activities around the conferences were great and perfectly organized.

Etienne Lamandé | User Acquisition Lead, TinyCo



We truly enjoyed ourselves and couldn’t stop talking about how great of a show you all put on. Big applause from us.

Joe Vezzani | UX, INNOCEAN Worldwide Americas



Thank you all so much for the wonderful welcoming to the Kochava Mobile Summit last week. It was a tremendous event and lovely to experience the famous Sandpoint for the first time. I appreciate all of your time, effort and energy to make the event a success – it was wonderful to be a small part of it so thank you for the invitation. Seriously impressed by how the entire team went above and beyond. Please be sure to express my gratitude to all of the others that helped make this a tremendous experience.

Sarah Bachman | VP Mobile Strategy, Horizon Media



The event was awesome. I look forward to attending next year and getting more involved with your team on events.

Alex Merutka | Head of Programmatic, AppLovin



Thanks for the note! I’m sure I speak for the others when I say that we had a great time at the event. We had the opportunity to meet with a number of high profile prospects and kickstart conversations. Looking forward to next year’s event already.

Patrick Eichmann | Director of Sales, LiftOff



Your event was amazing. I was completely impressed by the content and the level of participation from the attendees through panels and questions. Also, the Kochava hospitality was unparalleled. You guys know how to take care of your guests and it was appreciated by me and my colleagues.

Regina Larson | Partner Development, Yahoo



Wanted to thank you for putting together an incredible conference. It was the perfect size, a great group of people, casual and laid back yet the most brilliant minds talking honestly – very impressive. We left the conference energized, had great conversations and some of the panels were very thought provoking.

Galia Reichenstein | General Manager US, Taptica
