IDG World Expo’s Macworld/iWorld Canceled for 2015

October 15, 2014

In what would have been the show’s 20th anniversary, IDG World Expo’s Macworld/iWorld will not take place in 2015, according to company officials.

“We are announcing today that Macworld/iWorld is going on hiatus and will not be taking place as planned in 2015,” company officials said in a statement.

Adding, “Our MacIT event, the world's premiere event for deploying Apple in the enterprise, will continue next year, with details to be announced in the coming weeks.”

This year’s Macworld/iWorld was held March 27-29 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

The event, previously called Macworld Expo, went through a significant transformation in 2009 when Apple made the decision to no longer exhibit at the show.

Even so, the show forged ahead and the event was well received in the marketplace with a shift made toward Mac mobile products.

“Literally thousands of companies and hundreds of products have come to market at Macworld, and countless professional relationships have been forged,” IDG World Expo officials said.

Adding, “We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Apple community for allowing us to host these events and be a part of the incredible story that is the Apple market.”

IDG World Expo’s MacIT Conference will be held as scheduled March 26-29 next year at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

“We are committed via our MacIT event to bringing together the product developers innovating with enterprise iOS and OS X based solutions, and the growing legion of professionals empowering their organizations through these tools,” IDG World Expo officials said.

Adding, “We are exploring exciting new partnerships, venues and delivery opportunities through which MacIT can continue to serve this market, and we look forward to announcing our plans for this event within the next few months."
