Most recent Internet trade conferences have been sparsely attended, and major sponsors have suffered severely limited interest in their new offerings in both hardware and software. Seybold San Francisco 2001 bucked that trend, as both major sponsors (Apple and Adobe) easily filled presentation after presentation through their four days of presence on the trade show floor at the Moscone Center. And this was one week after terrorist attacks on U.S. soil."
