Microsoft’s Ignite conference for IT professionals and business people is drawing to a close today in Atlanta, but the company is already getting ready for the next one.

In a tweet on the Microsoft Ignite Twitter account, the dates and place for next years Ignite have been announced, next year’s show will take place in Orlando, Florida on September 25-29, 2017:

This will be Microsoft’s third Ignite conference, a mega-event that has combined the Microsoft Management Summit, Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, Project, and TechEd conferences all into one huge event. Last year’s Ignite was held in Chicago in May, and was scheduled to return to the Windy City this year until the schedule was changed from Spring to Fall, and the show was moved to Atlanta.

As she was this year, General Manager Julia White will host next year’s show, by all accounts a very successful four days of deep dives into Office, Office 365, SharePoint and much more.
