Macromedia, Adobe and Media 100 will be among the exhibitors at the MacFest roadshow events, which begins on March 13.

Organized by MacLine, AppleOnline and Macworld, the events will showcase new technologies and feature an extensive seminar program. MacFest is not an official Apple event, but the roadshow is designed to offer a chance for Macintosh users to meet the people whose products they use every day.

The spring MacFest roadshow runs from March 13-14 at the Novatel, Hammersmith, London. The second event takes place on Friday, March 16 at Manchester's Contact Theatre. More events are promised over the next year.
