Exhibit Hall & Free features • Bootcamps! • Social Events.
We haven't done a MacGathering in quite a while because, well you know... the Internet changed things a lot, but you're welcome to see what once was - and may be again.
Some of what you can expect
Here's what we have for you — IF we KNOW people will travel to attend. We know that's tricky, given the economy. Event attendance is down everywhere and we understand. So all we can do is tell you what we can do for you, then ask you to tell us if you want it.
We're the show with a personal touch, providing comfortable areas for you to sit and get to know our exhibitors, and for them to get to know you and your needs.
Tell us who you want/need to see and we'll let them know they are wanted.
Feature presentations open to all attendees.
Bootcamps covering all sorts of topics. All-day intensive training to improve your skills.
MacMixer™ — Friday evening reception for all attendees where you can mingle with fellow Mac-users, some terrific instructors and vendors — right in the Exhibit Hall!
"The MacMixer™ was a great idea. Do that again, please. How cool to be talking to someone, think he seems familiar, then realize you're talking to Jerry "the beaver" Mathers! I spoke to Jeff Levy too. You never know who's going to pop up when Deb's involved."
Games— just for fun on Saturday night
"Really enjoyed the MacGathering. Purchased several software programs. Found out how to attach my Nikon lens to my Cannon EOS (really cool!), picked up lots of great information and met a lot of nice people. Please do it again next year. Thanks for a great job." —Laurence
"I was embarrassed to not know how the iPod and iTunes worked, since everyone seems to just know this stuff. I'm glad the iProng.com guys were there. They showed me."
"...As if that wasn't enough, on Saturday I went to a few of the seminars on sound recording, music recording, and podcasting. I want to podcast my classes! This is going to be COOL! So now I know what the next steps are." —LP
"Just wanted to say thank you for organizing the macgathering.com workshops.
"The MacGathering happened just at the right time for me to start learning Flash. (Thankyou to Mke Browne.)"
"Wild. I read Andy Shalet's columns in magazines and then I come to this little show right in my own town and get to meet the guy and learn directly from him in person."
"I learned some great insider's Final Cut Pro from Steve Martin — the guy who made all the videos at the Apple website that made me and so many others know how great FCP was! I can't believe it. Steve was also selling his Ripple Training videos in the expo hall so I bought the whole set. But I'm still looking forward to the next time you can get Steve to teach!"
I know I'll pick up a lot of good info for my listeners there. Looking forward to it May '09.
"Thanks for the wonderful show. I'm looking forward to next year's MacGathering™ already!"

"I am wired and INSPIRED!!!! after having spent all of Friday and Saturday at the Macgathering."
"I learned so much in the Exhibit Hall! Every vendor I visited had helpful staff that sat down with me, so I did really get to know what they had, how I might use or need it, and even how to use it. Great personal service!"
"It was just like Leo Laporte said it would be. Up close and personal."
"The audio classes were amazing. Jerry sure knows his stuff! And the guy from BIAS was so great."
We also produce another event in Los Angeles. It's called
and you can learn about it at MacDayLA.com
MacDayLA is a smaller 1-day event. It's like MacGathering™ but without the show floor.
