Microsoft has typically been holding all its events on digital spaces ever since the COVID-19 hit. But this year in July, they announced that they will be holding their first in-person conference since the pandemic, Microsoft Ignite which is slated to run from October 12-14 in Seattle, at the Seattle Convention Center starting from 9 AM PT. However, they also detailed in the FAQ section of the event that though it is an in-person event space will be limited.
Registration for the event is now open on the conference’s homepage, with the option to attend it either virtually or in person. Attending the conference virtually is free but still requires registration while those who intend to go to the event in person will have to incur an approximate cost of $1,895 depending on the pass option you select while registering as detailed on Microsoft’s FAQ page.
We are yet to establish what Microsoft has in store for us during the three-day conference, but there were some indications that the event could also feature the release of new Surface devices and even the Windows 11 22H2 update.
Besides the conference in Seattle, Microsoft is also planning spotlights across multiple locations where we expect deliberations revolving around the news and announcements from the Keynote and Core Themes, along with market-specific discussions.
