The MacFest Roadshow hits Birmingham tomorrow at Edgbaston Cricket Club.
Apple will be there showing off all its hardware, and running seminars on DVD Studio Pro and Final Cut Pro. Adobe will also run seminars on software, including Web Collection, GoLive, LiveMotion, Photoshop and Illustrator.
Yesterday’s MacFest took place at Leeds University. In this picture from the event, you can see Macworld staffers Dean Payn and Sam French greeting visitors at Macworld’s stand – where you can pick-up a copy of the latest issue for just £2.50, and subscribe for either £9.99 per quarter, or £44 for 13 issues (with free copy of Studio Artist, worth £250).
David Floyd, from Bradford, attended the Leeds show, and was glad of the chance to meet software developers and hardware manufacturers in the flesh: “Most Mac purchasing is via mail-order, and so it’s great to be able to meet companies, ask questions and get demonstrations then and there.”
Seminars by Apple, Adobe, Macromedia and FileMaker were well attended. Organizers estimated a turn-out of 400 Mac customers at Leeds, but expect twice that figure for the Birmingham show.
The show is free to attend. Registering takes place online. People who pre-register will be entered into a competition to win a Titanium PowerBook G4.
Garrett Doyle, director of exhibitor MacLine, said: "MacFest gives visitors a unique opportunity to see a whole range of the latest Mac products for themselves."
