Macworld Expo

San Francisco, California, USA

Founded in 1985, the Macworld Conference and Expo is the largest annual Apple Macintosh event in the world. Well over 28,000 people have already pre-registered for MacWorld 2010. Hundreds of companies offering dedicated Mac products and services will be at the event to share their expert advice and show off their latest technology. There will be a strong focus on free training sessions and paid education tracks in 2010, in part to draw focus away from the fact that it will also be the first year in which Apple will not attend Macworld Expo.
