MacWorld Boston 2004Today I was lucky and had the opportunity to get away from work and at least checkout the exhibit floor at MacWorld Boston. This was a far cry from the days when they split the show between the World Trade Center and Bayside Expo.
There were only 80 exhibitors this year, a much smaller than the last show in Boston. While everyone knows that Apple wasn't there, there were some other notable exhibitors missing from the show floor.
- Microsoft - They could have capitalized on Apple not being at the show!
- Aladdin Systems
- Bare Bones - Makers of BBEdit, this is their home town!
One of the Town Hall panelist said that Apple didn't need to be at the show since 80% of the American population lives within an hour drive of an Apple store, so if they wanted to see the latest Apple hardware and Software they could goto their store. The show was an opportunity for other developers to show their stuff.
Anyway the next Boston MacWorld is July 18, 2005, we'll see what happens next year.
