microsoft logo1Heads up Microsoft fans, it looks like the company has announced that they will be holding a new event on the 4-8th of May 2015. Yes, it is a little bit early to announce a new event that will only be taking place next year, but we reckon it makes sense because with this event, Microsoft is expected to combine the content from the company’s separate events.

The event will combine content from events such as TechEd, SharePoint, Project, Lync, and Exchange, which we guess is to help condense them and to save time from having to attend so many separate events. However Microsoft does not that TechEd will still live on as an event of its own, and that this huge event will actually be considered part of it.

According to Microsoft Corporate VP, Steve Guggenheimer, “To be clear, TechEd lives on. This event will be a part of TechEd, co locating with that event to ensure the world of IT gets optimal access to all of the resources in one place.” It is unclear if Microsoft will be using this event to launch new products, although it does seem to be more targeted towards IT professionals.

Microsoft also did not mention if they will be merging their BUILD conference in with this mega conference as well, but since they did not mention it, we can only assume that BUILD will continue to be a separate event of its own. Microsoft is also expected to announce more details come September, so check back with us then to find out more!
