The annual MacWorld Expo show soldiers on next February, despite the lack of Apple itself (so far, Apple isn’t exhibiting at CES or NAB either; apparently Apple means it when they say “we don’t need shows”). MWSF is still the best place to see new iPod—erm, Mac and other Apple-related—products all gathered in one place, plus MWSF offers several conference tracks in Mac-centric photography, video, IT, and the like. MWSF is also famous for its parties, and as a general gathering of the fanbois (guilty as charged, grin).
DISCLAIMER: shameless marketing pitch, which may get me a free hotel room if enough people sign up using my priority code.
The nice folks at MWSF registration sent me a reminder that “expo hall registration is currently FREE, but only for a limited time, so encourage your friends to register today!” Indeed, they exhort me to get all my friends, family, and colleagues to sign up: if they get five registrations using my priority code by August 30, they’ll comp me a night in the local Marriott hotel.
Here’s the deal: when 5 people register using your priority code between July 30 and August 30, 2009, you’ll receive one free night at the Marriott San Francisco Hotel…
Just pass along your unique Priority Code to family, friends and colleagues. … And remember, expo hall registration is currently FREE, but only for a limited time, so encourage your friends to register today!
Your Priority Code is: AW414. Friends, family and colleagues can register for Macworld 2010 at www.rcsreg.com/macworld/AW414
(I’m told that other early-bird signer-uppers received the same email, so if you have a buddy angling for a free hotel room, use his/her sign-up link instead. But please, don’t sign up unless you really plan to attend.)
