Microsoft now has four big events in the US it holds every year and its 2016 plans have now been mostly revealed. The one big exception are the specific dates for ite 2016 Build conference in San Francisco, although it will still be held sometime in the spring.

Here's the lineup:

  • Build: Spring 2016 in San Francisco
  • Convergence: April 4-7, 2016 in New Orleans
  • Worldwide Partner Conference: July 10-14, 2016 in Toronto
  • Microsoft Ignite: September 26-30, 2016 in Atlanta

The biggest change in the 2016 event schedule compared to 2015 is a big move for the Microsoft Ignite conference, which is geared towards IT professionals. Microsoft previously announced that it would be held again in Chicago in May 2016 but now it will be held in late September 2016 in Atlanta. Microsoft did not state a specific reason for this shift in dates and location.
