IDG on MW Boston
IDG, which organizes the Macworld Expo series, said last week that it has committed to holding the East Coast Macworld Conference & Expo for the foreseeable future. Apple has refused to attend the July Macworld Expo since IDG moved it from New York to Boston. The summer trade show was arguably the most popular event for Mac enthusiasts when it was held in New York. The show traditionally brought major product announcements from Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Since Macworld's move to Boston, Apple has used it World Wide Developers Conference or other special events to make important announcements. IDG is likely to continue hosting the expo as long as it remains profitable. "As long as Macworld Expo works, we'll continue to do it," said David Korse, IDG World Expo President.
