Chicago Sun-Times' technology columnist and Macworld opinion-writer Andy Ihnatko will deliver the keynote speech at Macworld UK's Conference next week.

Ihnatko is flying across from his US home especially to appear at the UK's first-ever Macworld Conference, and promises a Dave Gorman-style account of twenty years of Mac.

He told Macworld: "I gave my house a really thorough cleaning from top to bottom for the first time in years. I photographed all the interesting items: toys from PR people; interesting documents and paperwork; old technology, that sort of thing."

The speaker – who owns a pair of goldfish called "Click" and "Drag" and who describes himself in a recent blog entry as "more than slightly hooked on Airline" will open the Macworld Conference at 9.30 on May 17.

The Conference runs across two days – May 17 and 18 – at London's Barbican Centre. It offers the industry's leading speakers marshalled to discuss today's key Mac topics.

Apple's director of software product marketing Oren Ziv, Adobe Photoshop expert Deke McClelland, UK Final Cut User Group founder Rick Young, Macromedia technical sales manager Jon Harris, and Macworld US editor-in-chief Jason Snell.

The conference will include separate streams on graphics, image capture, editing and layout; Mac OS X and Xserve; Video and special effects; and Web design and delivery.

A full brochure is available and some places are still available. Macworld subscribers are entitled to a discount: the cost of a one-day pass is £146; attendance for the two days is £229. The price for non-subscribers is £170 for one day, and £287 for both days. Prices include VAT.
