A representative from
Adobe Systems Inc.
confirmed for MacCentral today the company would be exhibiting at the upcoming
Apple Expo Paris.
According to Adobe, the company’s European office will arrange and staff the Paris Expo. They also said they still plan to have a big presence at Macworld Expo San Francisco in January 2002, making that their big U.S. event. “We are participating in a large way at Macworld San Francisco, so we will have a U.S. presence,” an Adobe spokesperson told MacCentral.
Earlier this month MacCentral spoke with Adobe Vice President of Marketing Cross Media Publishing Susan Altman Prescott about the New York and San Francisco events. “The decision around Macworld New York was in no way singling out Macworld. The decision has nothing to do with our Mac platform or Apple’s OS X operating system. Macworld San Francisco continues to be one of our larger trade shows in terms of participation, our exhibits and our dollars,” said Altman Prescott.
Adobe also revealed in the same interview that InDesign and Illustrator would be the first Adobe applications released natively for Mac OS X.
