Apple has confirmed it will exhibit at MacExpo 2006 this month.

The show takes place between 26-28 October at Olympia's National Hall, London.

Apple promises to host a "large stand" at the event (Stand 410). The company will use its stand to showcase its latest Macs and music products, including its new iPod range and the Mac Pro.

"For a limited time only, you can get a free ticket for the show by entering the discount code 'AP6' when you register on the MacExpo site," Apple's website declares.

Other show highlights this year will incude major announcements from Quark on the first day of the show.

The organisers have confirmed a selection of experience zones, focused on the different disciplines of Mac usage.

Nike will be running the Beat the Pro competition at its Tune your run zone, while the 'Music on the Mac Stage' will feature the record producers of stars like Lily Allen and Keisha White, who will offer advice on recording and editing music.
