Many people have been speculating that
Macromedia would not be exhibiting at this summer’s Macworld Expo in New York. The speculation originated with Macworld Expo’s official exhibitor list and the fact that Macromedia is not listed as an exhibitor.
Macromedia has confirmed for MacCentral that the company will indeed be exhibiting at Macworld. The company’s booth will be setup as it has been at previous conferences, with demos and presentations on Macromedia products — the focus at this summers show will be the
recently announced FreeHand 10 for Mac OS X.
Macromedia is also sponsoring a Birds of a Feather session on Wednesday, July 18, in the evening. Keith Hutchinson, product manager for FreeHand, will lead the discussion.
“Graphic designers and Web developers use FreeHand 10 to create sophisticated illustrations and page layouts ranging from intricate logos to Web site storyboards and large print projects,” a Macromedia spokesperson told MacCentral. “To date, Macromedia FreeHand 10 is the first and only vector-based illustration program to support Mac OS X. Hutchinson will lead discussions on key new features in FreeHand 10, how these features take full advantage of OS X and the benefits of developing and shipping a product for Apple’s next-generation operating system.”
Macworld New York will run July 17-20 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Visit the
Expo Web site for details.
