NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- July 16, 1999-- Apple Developer Connection, Xplain

special interest pavilions at MACWORLD Expo/New York. Developer Central,

web developers and network administrators.
MACWORLD Expo/New York, July 21-23, 1999, is hosting both pavilions on
the main floor (level three) of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
Developer Central is located at booth 1360. Right next to Developer

Hall 3B of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
"Since the launch of iMac, forward-looking developers have realized the
business opportunities available on the Mac platform," said Clent
Richardson, Apple's vice president of worldwide developer relations.
"This optimism will carry over to Developer Central and Net
Innovators at Macworld, where Apple's sponsorship will help get the Mac
message across to the brightest and best application developers, web
developers and network administrators."
"These pavilions are the focal point at MACWORLD Expo for the technical
attendees seeking out exhibitors with developer and technical
information," said Neil Ticktin, CEO, Xplain Corporation which manages
the pavilions. "With a mission focused on serving the
developer/technical communities, these pavilions have vendors of all
types and sizes showing off the best the Mac has to offer."
"Developer Central returns as the ever successful and longest-running
MACWORLD Expo special interest area for developers. Attendees are able to
test the increasing number of hot, new tools and applications and to meet
the experts and developers behind those technologies," said Nicole
Derany, MACWORLD Expo show director. "We are excited about our two
technical special interest areas - Net Innovators and Developer Central -
and all of our special interest areas. The Special Interest Environments
have always been a successful platform which allows MACWORLD Expo
attendees to test hands-on the latest, hottest technologies and products."
"MacTech and NetProfessional are proud to co-sponsor the Developer
Central and Net Innovators pavilions at MACWORLD Expo -- these specialty
areas are a comprehensive location for the developer community, " said
Nick DeMello, editor of MacTech Magazine. "If you're just beginning as a
programmer, developing web content, managing networks, or have been a
part of the developer community for years, you'll have the opportunity to
meet the experts face-to-face, explore the cutting edge of technology and
will learn about new products for the Mac worldwide."
At this Macworld, you'll find our specialty pavilions, Developer Central
(booth 1360) and Net Innovators (booth 1461). Simply look for the signage
above the show floor to help direct you to the pavilions. In addition,
