MacTech Magazine, the oldest Apple market publication, has announced today MacTech Pro Events — a new series of one day, regional events that are specifically designed for professional Apple techs, consultants, and support staff.
MacTech Pro Events are single-track, hotel-based seminars that are specifically geared to serve the needs of professional consultants, IT Pros and techs who support others on OS X and iOS. The first MacTech Pro will take place on March 4, 2015, in Seattle.
