Macworld - Reed Exhibitions will not hold Apple Expo Paris in 2009. The show organizers confirmed its plans for Macworld on Wednesday.
Apple Inc. has slowly been moving away from the Paris exposition for the past several years. In 2005, Apple canceled CEO Steve Jobs' keynote in Paris, although Apple and Jobs still attended the show. That was Jobs' first appearance in Paris since undergoing pancreatic cancer surgery in August 2004.
In 2008, Apple said it would not participate in the Paris expo at all, saying it would be participating in fewer trade shows.
Of course, on Tuesday, Apple announced that 2009 would be its last year at the largest Mac gathering, Macworld Conference & Expo, held in San Francisco. Jobs will also not be giving the keynote address at the company's last appearance at the show.
