Jobs to kick off Macworld
Apple CEO Steve Jobs will once again deliver the opening keynote address at the Macworld Conference & Expo to kick off this year's gathering of Apple-oriented fans and companies. Each year Jobs has historically used the keynote address as a stage for introducing new products and/or services, and this year analysts say the company could debut a new Apple-branded ultra-portable subnotebook.
"This is one of the biggest Mac community gatherings of the year and Steve's keynote is always the most anticipated event of the week," said Mary Dolaher, CEO of IDG World Expo. "We're looking forward to a great show and are thrilled that Steve will once again be kicking it off."
Macworld Conference and Expo 2008 will host creative professionals from a cross-section of industries including design, print, online, photography, broadcast, videography and music. In addition to an exhibit floor featuring over 350 companies, the event will offer a conference with more than 120 educational sessions as well as a set of exhibit floor attractions which include a free training series, an interactive Digital Photography area, and live Music alongside Sound product demonstrations.
