If you’re living in the UK but you’d like to participate in next month’s Macworld Expo vicariously by gathering with other Mac fans, you may be interested in an event sponsored by Birmingham-based
MacAssist. Attendees who pay a £10 fee will get to watch Apple CEO Steve Jobs deliver his keynote during an all-day Mac event on July 18 starting at 10 am.
MacAssist will display the speech live from New York on two large screens via a 2Mbps Internet connection. Seminars from Adobe and a MacAssist Mac troubleshooting presentation will also be given. Complimentary “American style refreshments” will be provided (hot dogs and pizza).
Folks who come to the event will also get to see the entire Apple hardware line on display, including LCD displays, the new iBook and PowerBook G4, according to MacAssist.
The seminars are free — tickets are only required to watch the speech. If you’re interested, you can register online at MacAssist’s Web site or call them at 0870 742 1176. And to sweeten the pot, MacAssist will be offering registrants a chance to win a £1500 prize package with copies of Adobe GoLive and Livemotion, Formac Studio Box and 12 months telephone support for up to 5 machines from MacAssist.
