Macworld 2012 adds “iWorld” to title, markets self as “lifestyle event” to stay relevant

There's not a whole lot of big-time press that follows MacWorld these days, or at least in the past few years since Apple stopped attending the event themselves - but they're still there, and they've still got something to say! Macworld 2012 is now called Macworld | iWorld and as event general manager Paul Kent says, "[it's] not a trade show - it's a lifestyle event." What the event's task is now, as it goes on this week, is to keep themselves at least seeming important as they move perhaps further and further away from the height of their popularity - the launch of the original iPhone.

What Went on at Macworld This Weekend? [Best of Show Winners Listed]

First, let's talk about what Macworld is briefly - it's a trade show where all sorts of Apple enthusiasts can show off their wares in an almost completely non-fruit-free environment. This used to be where Steve Jobs set up shop to show off Apple's newest wares until 2009 when they began hosting their own events (which we basically always attend.) This convention has been going on since 1985 and is generally accepted as being sort of "past it's prime" but is still going relatively strong. This year's Macworld took place January 25th through the 29th, and dismissed the idea that no Apple keynote means no Macworld FOREVER!
