Microsoft respawns WinHEC Windows-oriented device conference in China

Microsoft logoPossibly hoping to kickstart a declining PC market, Microsoft yesterday announced is intention to hold the WinHEC conference again. The reborn conference will be held in Shenzhen, China on March 18 and 19, pointing to the large amount of hardware manufacturers and developers in the area.

Founded in 1992, the US-centric conference was the launch for many major revisions to software and hardware including Windows XP releases, Windows Longhorn (later called Vista) demonstrations, and a few Microsoft Office releases. The annual conference was folded into the Professional Developer's Conference, then into the Build program.

WinHEC

The WinHEC acronym has been rebranded as well -- it used to stand for "Windows Hardware Engineering Conference" and now denotes the "Windows Hardware Engineering Community." The conference will "stay true to its strong technical roots," according to Microsoft. The relaunch of WinHEC will be the first one held in China. The second WinHEC will be in Taipei.
