For starters, the annual gathering of Mac fans will see less than half as many exhibitors Feb. 9-13: 220 this year versus 500 in 2009, the last year Apple said it would officially support the San Francisco event."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1265669871.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>I was hoping they would have more exhibitors than what they are expecting so they might be around for a few years. But I imagine the Apple faithful will show their support in order to keep this show going. They moved it to February (this week in fact) so that it didn't conflict with CES, of which Apple was a part. What are your thoughts? Anyone out there attending?</p>

I would not have attended anyway. I'm sure that if they scale back expectations, maybe the show will continue, but I think that the big draw in the last 4 years has been the Apple keynote, and, without that, there will be less of a draw for journalists.

Also, as far as I know, Apple was not at CES this year.

It appears they do have the interest based on the crowd levels this year (http://www.tuaw.com/2010/02/11/the-opening-day-crowd-at-macworld-2010/), which is a good thing. I may have to go to one yet! ;)
