Today, IDG World Expo (the folks behind Macworld), announced that they will be holding a Town Hall Meeting at next week’s show. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 7 at 5PM PST in Moscone’s Gateway Ballroom, room 102.
All Macworld attendees are free to and encouraged to attend as IDG will be taking the feedback given there to help shape future Macworld events.
A few weeks back it was announced that Macworld 2009 would be Apple’s last. With the annual keynote given by Steve Jobs being the highlight of the event, this has put the Macworld Expo in a bit of a predicament. Why attend when Apple won’t even be there?
Paul Kent, VP and GM of Macworld, acknowledges that things will change, but is optimistic. “While there is no question that Macworld is going to evolve and change in 2010, the fundamental importance of the event remains the same: the unique ability to put exciting new Apple-related products directly into the hands of users and to inspire those users to put their products to work in new and innovative ways,” he says.
How would you change Macworld now that Apple will no longer be attending?
