It was, in fact,just possible to make your way through the crowds on the exhibit floor, though attendees needed to employ their best weave-anddodge techniques most of the time. Diverse companies made up the more than 300 exhibits this year, with the biggest exhibitor (guess who?) showing off all the brand-new Apple offerings. Among the many companies featuring their new products, announcements, and upgrades were LaCie, FileMaker, Belkin, Fujitsu, Smart Technologies, Small Tree Communications, SecureMac.com, and Quark.
