IDG World Expo announced today that it expects to smash all previous attendance records at the upcoming Macworld Conference & Expo, slated for January 9 ? 12, 2001 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

"Macworld Conference & Expo is exploding," says Charlie Greco, president and CEO, IDG World Expo, owners and managers of the event. "Every day, there are new Mac converts out there. We know because we blew out existing attendance records last year in San Francisco. 85,000 people packed that show! Then we broke records again with the East Coast Macworld Conference & Expo, which is now the second most widely-attended IT event in New York. Other IT events are seeing their attendance numbers decline. Not ours. Macworld Conference & Expo is taking on a life of its own on both coasts," he said.

For more than 16 years considered the worldis most comprehensive Macintosh OS event, leading companies from around the world use Macworld Conference & Expo to showcase their latest hardware, software, and Internet solutions. They also network with members of the Mac community at educational and informative conference sessions, special events, and forums.

"We had an amazing turnout at Macworld Conference & Expo/San Francisco last year," says Rob Scheshareg, VP of events for IDG World Expo. "Weire confident the growth will continue. Each year, our exhibitors unveil hundreds of new Mac products at the show. Itis also the place to be if you want to make an important business connection, or be first to know about hot new hardware or software for the Mac. Macworld Conference & Expo is where it all happens."
