The 16th annual Macintosh Computer Expo or MCE is held each year in the North Bay. Thousands of Macintosh enthusiasts come from all over the Bay Area to visit with Macintosh product vendors and attend informational workshops. Since 1991 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 expert Derrick Story, author and columnist Jim Heid, and many other Mac enthusiasts sharing their knowledge throughout the day on topics such as photography, podcasting, web design, computer health, and the iPhone. With over twenty vendors showing their products and great raffle prizes, this year promises to be the place to be on a Saturday in October.

The Mac Computer Expo (MCE) is presented by the North Coast Mac Users Group (NCMUG) a non-profit organization who for the past 25 years has been dedicated to teaching and promoting the Apple Macintosh.
