Microsoft, Build

There has been tremendous interest in everything on Microsoft lately with the announcements at the Microsoft Event in NYC this year, including the new Surface Studio and Surface Dial. In a new announcement, Microsoft Build will be held in Seattle, Washington, May 10-12, 2017.

Here’s a look at what other premier events that Microsoft has planned for 2017:

  • First, we are bringing our annual Microsoft Build conference to Seattle — the “cloud city” — from May 10-12, 2017. Once again, developers can hear from Microsoft engineering leaders and learn about the latest tools and technologies to boost creativity and productivity. Look for information about Microsoft Build at .
  • Next, we are renaming the Worldwide Partner Conference to Microsoft Inspire, which will be held July 9-13 in Washington, D.C. This new name reflects how Microsoft and our partner community inspire each other to innovate and deliver powerful new solutions to customers.
  • And finally, we are shifting Microsoft Envision, our event for business leaders previously planned for February, to become part of Microsoft Ignite Sept. 25-29, 2017 in Orlando, Florida. The partnership between business and IT leaders has never been more important, so Microsoft Ignite will now cater to both audiences and help foster collaboration between the two. We’ll have more details to share in the coming months.
