EL SEGUNDO, CALIFORNIA - Axiotron, Inc., a leading proprietary high-tech hardware solution provider, announced today that it has finalized its schedule of Macworld booth activities and seminars to showcase the unparalleled design functionality and broad range of applications offered by its award-winning Modbook™.

Scheduled for the main presentation area of booth S-408, each of Axiotron’s guest presenters will conduct a set of practical mini-seminars and demonstrations, giving attendees a chance to see the award-winning, Apple-authorized Modbook in use by today’s top designers, photographers and artists.

And, as the grand prize at each raffle, one lucky booth-goer will be awarded a brand new Axiotron Modbook.
The raffles will take place at the main presentation area of booth S-408 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 3:00pm. All raffle participants will receive a 5% discount coupon toward their purchase of a customized Modbook solution courtesy of Other World Computing, the exclusive U.S. distributor of the Modbook.
