SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 1,2013 /PRNewswire/ --IDG World Expo today announced the
opening of Macworld/iWorld, the annual grand gathering of the Apple industry
chain focused solely on the Apple products platform at the Moscone Center in
San Francisco. The three-day premier event of consumer electronics
technologies will show the comprehensive leading strength of Apple platform
technologies and products in the present mobile lifestyle. Over 20,000
marketing professionals, technicians and senior users will attend from
worldwide. As a big highlight this year, China Innovation Forum (China Inno)
will debut on Jan 31 at Macworld/iWorld, aiming to demonstrate China's
innovative strength and promoting international communication. The forum will
provide a unique stage for Chinese enterprises to show their competitiveness
in the global mobile internet industry.

From January 31 to February 2, the Macworld/iWorld Expo will organize
Exhibitions, TechTalks, MacIT Conferences, Workshops, the iPhone Film
Festival, Music Studio and Digital Art Gallery as well as Macworld/iWorld
Blast. The idea of "Making mobile products even more exciting" will continue

day, Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad will take to the Macworld/iWorld Main stage
to share their experiences playing the technology industry's two most
celebrated and influential personalities, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in the
upcoming feature film, JOBS.

With the rapid popularization of smart mobiles in China, thriving Chinese
innovation in the mobile internet industry has become too strong to neglect.
IDG China and TechNode bring the ChinaInno to Macworld/iWorld to the U.S for
the first time in order to create an interactive platform focusing on the
Chinese and American pioneering eco-system and to discuss the contribution of
Chinese enterprises to global resource integration and their development path
overseas. Tens of Chinese venture companies including Socogame, Advansolution,
Silicon Valley Bank and adSage engaged in heated discussions with nearly one
hundred American business leaders, technology elites, financial experts,
developers and media at the forum.

The amazing speeches and vivid demonstrations by Chinese presenters have
revealed the strategic thinking and innovative strength of the current Chinese
market, whose huge potential has greatly aroused the interests of American
counterparts. The attendees were convinced that with the increasing
development of the Apple eco-system, China and US markets enjoy great
opportunities of cooperation. In addition, the combination of the developing
awareness and capabilities of Chinese enterprises with the rich
entrepreneurial experience and resources of the Silicon Valley will certainly
help the Chinese enterprises acquire more outstanding achievements in the
mobile internet era.

Paul Kent, Vice President and General Manager of Macworld/iWorld said:
"ChinaInno is one of the highlights of Macworld/iWorld 2013, the annual grand
event of the Apple technology platform, and moreover, it is the first special
event of the Macworld event to focus on Chinese innovation in its over 20
years of history. The forum will create a new channel for all participants of
the industrial chain to explore and understand the innovative strength of
China as well as the Asia-Pacific region in the mobile internet industry. It
shows the strong competitiveness and development of the emerging Chinese
innovation community, to which players from the global market should pay close
attention."

When talking about the overseas development path of Chinese venture companies,
Jennifer Xu, Senior Vice President of IDG Asia said: "In the process of going
global, the first step of Chinese venture companies should be showing itself
bravely. At Macworld/iWorld, the attendees will see the most cutting-edge
technologies and products of the year, find out the highlights and developing
tendency of the industry and experience the pioneering ambience of innovation
and passion. The China Innovation Forum will become an excellent stage for the
innovation communities of the Asia-Pacific region to show their strength and
creative thinking"
