No keynote for Paris Expo; Jobs to still attend show

Apple Computer on Monday said that there will be no opening keynote presentation at Apple Expo Paris, which is normally given by company CEO, Steve Jobs. Company officials confirmed that while there will be no formal presentation, Apple executives will be on hand all week.

“While this year’s apple expo will not feature a formal keynote presentation members of Apple’s executive team will be hosting a Q&A session for members of the media on the opening day and will be at Apple Expo throughout the week,” Apple spokesperson, Bill Evans, told MacCentral.

In addition to the executives that will host the Q&A session, Apple also confirmed the presence of Jobs at the event.

“Yes, Steve will be at Apple Expo with other members of Apple’s executive team,” said Evans.

Jobs will make his first appearance at Apple Expo Paris after undergoing pancreatic cancer surgery in August 2004, keeping him from the European show.

Last year at Apple Expo Paris, Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Product Marketing, unveiled the redesigned iMac G5.

Apple Expo Paris will open on Tuesday, September 20, 2005 at 11:00 am local time.
