Several years of declining attendance and a soured relationship with Apple left the east coast Macworld Expo too small for the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, the Boston Globe reports. Attendance at this year’s show was just over 8,000, compared with 50,000 in 1997. “Based on feedback that we have, the show in its current size is not big enough” to fill the new center’s exhibit hall, said Warwick Davies, group vice president at IDG World Expo. “We want people to be able to feel a lot more close together.” As reported last week, the Boston Macworld Conference & Expo will move to the smaller Hynes Convention Center for its July 11-14, 2005 event.
