Wither MacWorld Expo

It looks like MacWorld Expo is withering away, well it may try to survive but it is hard to see how it can do do without Apple being involved.
I can perfectly understand why Apple backed out of it, the pressure of syncing product introductions with the event must have been difficult, usually betrayed by the fact that products were delayed 4-6 weeks after being announced. Apple can manage resources better if it announces products on its own schedule, and has been doing more and more ad-hoc announcements these past few years without any loss of publicity.
It think the real loss will be for the third-parties because MacWorld Expo gave them a wide audience which is harder for them to get otherwise.
