Macworld 2010 Changes Dates to February 9-13

Macworld has just sent out an email telling interested parties that they're changing the dates for their annual Expo from the traditional early January, to roughly a month later:

As we began the planning process for 2010, the Mac community - exhibitors, attendees, media and fans of the show - made it clear that February would be a more ideal time to hold the event, so we listened. The Conference programs are scheduled for Tuesday through Saturday, February 9 - 13 and the Expo will be held Thursday through Saturday, February 11-13th.

Now that Apple will no longer be attending Macworld, of course, not going up against the juggernaut that is CES -- which is already, and controversially, wooing Mac and iPhone exhibitors -- could also be A Good Thing.

On our end, we're wondering if, between CES, Macworld, MWC, and CTIA we're going to have to clone Dieter sooner than we anticipated! Were you thinking of attending Macworld 2010? Do the new dates make you more likely to attend now? And are there too many iPhone-involved shows too closely lumped together now?
