Macworld Expo Renamed Macworld|iWorld Changes Focus To Include iDevices

The annual Macworld Expo conference taking place January 26-28, 2012 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco is getting a new name and a slight change of focus for 2012. Now dubbed the Ultimate iFan Event the Expo has changed it's name to Macworld|iWorld, even better the event will cost even less to attend.

The price drop, name change and addition of more iDevice related material is a result of the conference's hopes of attracting a new audience of Apple fans that relate more closely to the iPhone and iPad.

Paul Kent, IDG's guru for things related to Macworld|iWorld -- discussed the branding change with the corporate masses at Macworld magazine. "We want a heavy influence of OS X developers on the show floor this year," Kent said, "but the show will be balancing the iOS impact as well as moving outward to re-emphasize the cultural connections to Apple products."

The conference will not only include more information related to iOS devices and software but will feature elements aimed at providing what Kent characterized as a “dynamic culture experience.” There will be a new Music Experience showcase featuring live performances and talks from musicians who use Apple technology in their music. As well as a new Film Event highlighting the use of Apple technology in movies and TV shows. There is even going to be an iPhone Film Festival
