The 17th annual Macintosh Computer Expo or MCE is held each year in the North Bay. Thousands of Macintosh enthusiasts come from all over the San Francisco Bay Area to visit with Macintosh product vendors and attend informational workshops. Since 1992 MCE has grown in attendance from a few hundred people to being the largest expo of its type in the Bay Area second only to Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
A great line up of well-known speakers this year include digital photo guru Derrick Story, digital artist Bert Monroy, Macworld magazine Senior Editor Chris Breen, Mac author Jim Heid, iStockphoto chief evangelist and author Lesa Snider, Mac Observer editors Byran Chaffin and Jeff Gamat, MacVideoTraining co-founder Paul Garay, MacCast Publisher Adam Christianson and many other Mac experts sharing their knowledge throughout the day on topics such as digital photography, podcasting, social media, Mac trouble-shooting, and the iPhone and the iPad.
With over twenty-five vendors showing their products and great raffle prizes, this year promises to be the place to be on a Saturday in October.
Raffle tickets: $5 each or a booklet of 5 for $20. Tons of raffle items and the ticket for the grand prize (an iPad) donated by Mac Video Training will be pulled at 4:30. Winners do not need to be present to win.
