Macworld/iWorld, the annual exhibition that began way back in 1985, will not be in held in 2015. The news was confirmed on Tuesday by IDG World Expo, the exhibition group that organizes the annual event. Apple stopped participating at the conference in 2009.
“We are announcing today that Macworld/iWorld is going on hiatus, and will not be taking place as planned in 2015,” IDG World Expo said Tuesday. “Our MacIT event, the world’s premiere event for deploying Apple in the enterprise, will continue next year with details to be announced in the coming weeks. As Apple products and the related ecosystem have changed, so has the marketplace, and we are proud to have played a part in that evolution.”
The show was originally scheduled to run between March 12 and March 15 of 2015, according to signage that appeared at last year’s show. IDC World Expo didn’t explain why it won’t run the show this year but, according to T-Gaap, attendance had more than halved between 2009 and 2013 after Apple decided to no longer participate.
