<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>As for the MWNY Apple cited money reasons but who knows there could be something deeper then that ?<p><hr></blockquote><p>Apple was irritated because they weren't in on the decision to move to Boston.<br>Apple wanted to stay in New York because NYC is the graphic design center of the US.<br>MacWorld wanted to pull out of NYC because of the cost. <br>Many small exhibitors were unhappy with NY because NY is very union oriented. You can not even bring your own stuff into the convention center. <br>It has to be brought in by union contractors and you pay big time for that.<br>Then Apple like a little kid said that if they can't have it their way they won't come.<br>Basically Apple won because as you can see nobody is exhibiting either.<br>But did they win? It was like throwing a party for Apple Computer but they don't show up.<br><br>
Yes it comes back down to money <br><br>I agree Apple could have forked out some money for its own party as you say. Besides its a tax write off anyway.<br><br>Who knows maybe Apple was consulted but by the time Apple responded, MW had to book the next expo ? I dunno about NY but here our company Christmas Party has to booked no later then January that year, otherwise your out of luck for the time slot you want. Convention centers is a whole other cat.<br><br>
