Macworld Expo NY Events List Online -- Ilene Hoffman has once again posted the Robert Hess Memorial Macworld Expo Events List. If you plan to attend Macworld Expo in New York City from 07-Jul-98 through 10-Jul-98, check the list for public events. If you are hosting an event at Macworld Expo, make sure to fill out the Event Submission Form.
