MacExpo 2004 runs November 18-20 at Islington's Business Design Centre, and will also be the forum for the next Macworld Conference.

There's a host of highlights planned for the Conference, and information on what will be on offer has been updated and is available online.

Day one of the show in the 'Publishing' track will see an Adobe versus Quark face-off, hosted by Alistair Dabbs.

Quark's Shellie Hall will vie with Adobe's Chris Kitchener as both sides attempt to prove the superiority of their chosen publishing packages, their capabilities and future visions.

Whichever package you prefer, the Conference offers Masterclass sessions in both - including training in the not-yet available QuarkXPress 6.5 - the first time training in the upgraded application will be available worldwide.
