MacExpo 2006 takes place in just two weeks time, and the organisers have revealed yet more details on what delights the show will deliver.

Apple last week confirmed its attendance at the event, promising a "large stand" at the show. Mac users visiting last year's MacExpo were disappointed at the size of Apple's stand, which the company reduced in size shortly before the event took place.

The show will also feature a major announcement from Quark on day one.

UK iPod accessories vendor, Gear4, is offering attendees the chance to win one of two HouseParty 24/7 iPod speaker systems. The systems integrate an AM/FM radio, iPod dock, alarm function, and a set of powerful stereo speakers.

Additional features confirmed today include an extensive presentation from Future Cut Productions, who produced and co-wrote half of Lily Allen's recent album, including chart smash 'Smile'. Future Cut will discuss how they used Logic Pro on a Power Mac G5 to create the song.

There will be a range of "experience zones", which will offer show-goers the chance to look at the latest products and services for the way they like to use their Mac.

A series of 45 presentations will teach attendees more about digital photography on a Mac, while the 'Tune your run' show will explain the Nike+ iPod product, with an hourly product give-away.

Capital Radio will also be at MacExpo, creating and publishing regular podcasts from the event.

All seminars and sessions at this year's show are free of charge.
