Apple products and solutions will take centre stage at GadgetExpo 2002.

Apple's MP3 Player the iPod is billed as the star attraction at the event that takes place at Canary Wharf in London’s Docklands from December 2 to 7.

This is the first GadgetExpo to take place, and attendance is free.

GadgetExpo sales director Ryan Scantlebury said: "We want to develop GadgetExpo over the next five years into a popular, cutting edge expo, with the very latest products – such as the solutions supplied by Apple."

Apple reseller John Lewis will have a large presence at the show. It will use the event to showcase the iMac, iBook and iPod ranges, and Apple’s suite of digital-lifestyle applications.
