Quark has announced that it is to run a QuarkXpress 7 preview road show in the new year.

The briefings will start at the Apple Store in London on January 18, and will move to Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Scandinavia, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, and Turkey throughout January and February.

The workshops could suggest that Quark will unveil QuarkXpress 7 at Macworld San Francisco in January, although the company is claiming that the workshops will focus on Top Tricks for QuarkXpress 6.5 with the chance to win a free copy of that version at the event.

Quark says: "In 2006 Quark will release the revolutionary new QuarkXpress 7, that will transform creative development and boost productivity in equal measure. The year 2006 will also see Quark continue to drive improvements in service, support, policies, and partnerships to improve our customers’ overall experience of working with Quark solutions."
