The UK's homegrown MacExpo event has opened up for free registration.

The show organisers have begun contacting people who have visited the show before to let them know to pre-register now, as there are 5,000 free places up for grabs.

MacExpo 2005 is being held in the Olympia National Hall, Kensington, London between 27-29 October.

"Plans for the 2005 show are now well advanced and with the new larger venue we are looking forward to our best show yet," show organisers say, promising, "Visitor information will be added to the website over the coming weeks".
