IDG World Expo plans to hold a special Town Hall Meeting during Macworld Expo & Conference 2009 to discuss expo plans for 2010 and beyond. The event will be held in the Moscone Gateway Ballroom (room 102) at 5PM pacific time on Wednesday, January 7, and will be open to all Macworld attendees.
IDG representatives said that the "meeting will serve as an exchange of ideas on potential new show attractions, content, and features, and will offer an opportunity for members of the Mac community to ask questions about next year's event."
Paul Kent, Macworld Expo's vice president and general manager, added "Macworld will continue to foster the deep sense of community that has been at the heart of the show for the last 25 years. As part of this commitment to the community, we look forward to sharing our thoughts and ideas for future Macworld events, as well hearing ideas and suggestions from the community."
The future of Macworld Expo was called into question after Apple announced that it would no longer exhibit at the event after 2009. Many have speculated that without Apple's attendance, the conference and expo would lose its relevance and fade away. The event organizers, however, plan to revamp the event so that it continues to hold value for attendees.
Macworld Expo runs from January 5 through January 9, 2009, at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. For additional information about the Expo and events, visit the Macworld Expo Web site.
