FRAMINGHAM, Mass. and SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Macworld/iWorld 2013 (Twitter: @MacworldExpo; Event hashtag: #iFan13), the Ultimate iFan Event, wrapped up on Saturday at the Moscone Center, West Hall in San Francisco, IDG World Expo announced today. For three activity-packed days, an estimated 25,000 people experienced an Expo Hall showcasing almost 300 exhibitors and sponsors who launched hundreds of new apps, products, technologies and tools for all Apple-related platforms and took part in more than 60 engaging and informative Tech Talks and special events featuring industry experts, luminaries and Hollywood star power, such as Ashton Kutcher, Josh Gad, Fred Armisen and will.i.am. Macworld/iWorld 2014 will take place February 1 – February 3, 2014 in San Francisco.
The success of the 2013 event once again demonstrates that Macworld/iWorld is the premier event for showcasing the intersection of Apple and Apple-related technology, business, culture, education and art. Overflowing session crowds and dynamic, interactive experiences created an environment bursting with creativity, innovation and excitement. Brisk consumer shopping from the large, daily crowds in the Expo Hall drove a highly successful rebook for the 2014 show. And the bustling Appalooza section of the show floor was packed with consumers exploring the latest and best new apps for iOS devices, offering dozens of new companies an incomparable platform for bringing products to market.
"We have been to a lot of events, but this is our first Macworld/iWorld and it was, by far, the best we've attended in terms of the platform it provided us to demonstrate our CrazyTalk 7 app and reach our target audiences," said John Martin, vice president, Marketing at Reallusion, Macworld "Best of Show" winner. "The combination of 'First Looks' and dedicated 'Appalooza' area of the show floor gave us unparalleled exposure to a wide variety of attendees, including consumers, students, industry experts and press, as well as business development opportunities and the chance to connect with fellow developers. We loved our Macworld/iWorld experience and look forward to next year."
