Intel cut some of its Intel Developer Forum conferences to save money. In 2006 there were nine IDF events, in 2007 there will be only three.
Intel has decided to cancel the satellite events in Prague, Bangalore, Tel Aviv, Seoul, Shanghai, Ukraine and Sao Paulo and focus on three key events in Peking (April 17-18), San Francisco (September 18-20) and Taipei (October 15 - 16).

While details about the new IDF schedule have not been published yet, it has been an open secret that Intel officials weren't so sure about the firm's IDF expenses anymore. For example, the Spring IDF, held in San Francisco's Moscone Center, was rumored to have caused expenses north of $3 million and smaller events in the range of about $1 million.
The 3 key events will stay and are Intel promises they will be "strengthened".
