Intel scales back 2007 chip shows
Intel has eliminated most of its Intel Developer Forum processor conferences in 2007 to cut costs.
In 2006, Intel held 14 IDF shows around the globe--though some were minor events rather than full-blown multi-day affairs. In 2007, there will be just three IDF conferences, spokesman David Dickstein said: in Beijing from April 17-18, in San Francisco from September 18-20, and in Taipei from October 15-16.
"By reducing the number of shows, it saves money and strengthens the resources for the shows we are holding," Dickstein said.
