Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2013: To Be or Not to Be?

Like many of you I’m sure, I was surprised the lack of announcement of a SPC 2013 at this year’s SPC keynote.  Given the fact that the dates and location of this year’s SPC in Las Vegas were announced at last year’s SPC keynote in Anaheim, and especially given that the new release is called SharePoint 2013, the conspicuous absence of a SPC 2013 announcement was particularly surprising.

I have to believe, however, (also like many of you, I’m sure) that there will be a SPC 2013.  I mean, sure, SharePoint 2013 saw its official RTM declaration (and the availability for download of the bits from TechNet and MSDN) in conjunction with SPC earlier this month but, per Microsoft, “General availability is planned for the first quarter of 2013.”

It’s for those reasons, combined with the fact that there has now been a SPC for three straight years (with each one bigger than the last), I figure there’s got to be a SPC 2013 in the works.  Presumably it will take place in October or November, as has become the custom, so now it’s really just a question of when we’ll get the confirmation and attendant details from Microsoft.

Inquiring minds want to know.  I don’t suppose anybody would care to share some inside scoop?

Failing that, I guess we can at least start speculating about the location of SPC 2013.  A second autumn SPC in Anaheim?  A Vegas hat trick?  Somewhere else that’s not too chilly in autumn?  New Orleans, Orlando, or Atlanta, all of which have been recent TechEd stops?  Somewhere else entirely?

UPDATE, 12/14: Yesterday evening, an email was sent to attendees of SPC 2012 which read (in part): “We’ll be announcing the next SharePoint Conference soon, so stay tuned for more news on where and when we’ll be going next and be sure to stay in touch with us on Facebook and Twitter.”

Why don’t you make a Bamboo Conference Agenda builder that allows you to generate a multi-track 2D agenda from a SP list?
