WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA — August 4, 2003 — Xplain Corporation, the leader in
pavilion management, announced today they’ll offer turnkey station packages
to U.S. based companies, in market-focused pavilions at Apple Expo, in
Paris (16-20 September, 2003). MacTech Central and the International
Pavilion will bring to the Paris show both technical tools as well as help
introduce many international publishers to the European market.
Apple Expo, Europe’s premier Macintosh event, celebrating it’s 20th year,
takes place from September 16 – 20, 2003, and will be held at the Porte De
Versailles in Paris. See (http://www.apple-expo.com/) for more information
Special Interest Pavilions, including Xplain’s long running MacTech
Central(sm), have featured both up-and-coming companies, as well as
showcased technologies. These pavilions provide exhibiting companies with
an affordable and turnkey method to reach their target audiences
face-to-face without requiring a large staff or display. In turn, attendees
with particular interests can experience first-hand the very latest
Macintosh technology for specific market segments in a cohesive setting.
MacTech Central, sponsored by MacTech Magazine, the journal of Macintosh
technology and development, is the premiere place for all technical
products including programming and development, web development, network
administrator tools and services, enterprise, networking, and other related
developer and technical products.
The International Pavilion is designed for companies based outside Europe
who would like to make their entry into the European market. Exhibitors
will not only be able to talk with attendees, but take part in special
events with local distributors, and related companies, all with the purpose
of bringing their products to Europe.
Both pavilions, priced competitively at $1995 for a pod, exhibitors are
provided a completely turnkey package. For more information and details,
“Apple Expo is Europe’s premier Macintosh event. Last year’s introduction
to this marketplace was such a fabulous success for our exhibitors, it was
obvious we had to do it again. We’re proud to offer affordable exhibit
packages enabling US companies to expand their market share into Europe,”
said Neil Ticktin, CEO of Xplain Corporation. “With a mission focused on
serving these specific purposes, these pavilions will continue our track
record of focused pavilions.”
