Last week’s Macworld Expo in New York City has broken all previous East Coast attendance records, according to IDG World Expo, managers of the popular Macintosh event.
This year’s attendance of 64,480 breaks the previous attendance record at last summer’s expo in New York by over 3,200 attendees. IDG is expected to officially release the numbers later today.
These numbers not only make Macworld the largest Mac orientated show on the East Coast, but the largest tech orientated show overall. IDG is expected to announce today that Macworld has surpassed both PC Expo (now part of TECHXNY) and Internet World as the largest tech orientated show in New York.
During his keynote address, Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced a rev for the iMac; a slightly new design and speed boost for the desktop G4 called QuickSilver; a demo of Mac OS X 10.1, fixing many of the complaints that Mac users had with the recently released OS; a demo of iDVD 2.0; and Jobs offered details on the future of the Apple Stores.
