Next year’s Macworld/iWorld expo, previously scheduled for Superbowl weekend (January 31-February 2), just moved to March 27 through March 29, 2014. Macworld.com has the full story. While I have to admit I’d have no problem giving up the Super Bowl for Macworld, I’m not sure everyone would agree. I think this move is a good one. Moreover, the new date means I don’t have to leave town on my wife’s birthday.
I’ve written before that I believe Macworld has found its groove since Apple left. Moving the date further helps draw the distinction between the Macworld of old and the Macworld of now. It’s no longer competing with CES. Instead, it takes place months later.
So now we’ve all got a year’s notice and no excuse not to make plans to attend next March. It’s just not right how much I enjoy attending Macworld every year.
