Registrations for Microsoft Ignite 2020 are now open. The event is all-digital this year and spans across 48 hours. It's free to virtually attend the event, but you need to register to gain access. You can register using Microsoft' Ignite's webpage.

Microsoft Ignite 2020 runs from September 22 through September 24. During the event, there will be discussions, a Learning Zone, several speakers, and announcements from Microsoft. There will also be live Q&A sessions to answer questions regarding what Microsoft has planned.

Microsoft Ignite often sees announcements across a wide range of Microsoft technologies. Last year we saw Microsoft announce new Office Mobile apps for iOS and Android, Microsoft Whiteboard arrive on the web and Teams, and Cortana's AI smarts coming to Outlook. Ignite is also a place for interesting or out of the ordinary announcements, such as Microsoft preserving a movie on a piece of glass.

The event kicks off on September 22, 2020 at 4 PM BST (11 AM ET). Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella shares his keynote just a half-hour later at 4:30 PM BST (11:30 ET).
