The proverbial cat may be out of the bag already, but one of the first official indications that IDG World Expo is bringing
Macworld Conference & Expo
back to Boston, Ma. came in the form of a media alert sent this afternoon to journalists. According to the alert, IDG World Expo will formally announce Macworld Expo’s return to Boston in a press event to be held next week.

IDG World Expo president and CEO Charlie Greco plans to speak at an event to be held next Thursday alongside Boston mayor Thomas M. Menino, Pat Moscaritolo, the president of the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Gloria Larson, chairperson of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority.
As was reported earlier this week, IDG World Expo — the show’s coordinator — plans to return Macworld Conference & Expo after an absence of several years. Since 1998, the summer Macworld Expo events have been held at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City. The event will occupy space at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC) — a mammoth new facility that’s currently under construction and due to open in 2004.
At next week’s press briefing IDG and the other participants are expected to provide details about bringing the show back to Boston in 2004. The press briefing happens at 11 am ET on Thursday, October 17.
