Apple today announced the dates for the WWDC 2017 event. The event that will take place at McEnery Convention Center in San Jose will run from June 5th to June 9th. This is one of the most important events of the year not only for Apple but also for developers and users, as the company announces next versions of its operating systems.
The venue is located just a few minutes from Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino and is in the same area as Apple’s existing campus. Apple notes in its announcement that this year’s WWDC will provide developers with the opportunity to interact with over 1,000 Apple engineers.
The McEnery Convention Center will be the hub for thousands of attendees with great hotel, restaurant and entertainment options, all within walking distance. In addition to the keynote address, get-togethers, sessions and labs for developers, Apple is working with the city of San Jose and local businesses to celebrate the return of WWDC with very special experiences around San Jose throughout the week.
Apple is expected to announce iOS 11, macOS 10.13, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4 at the conference that will be attended by thousands of developers and members of the press. It is unlikely that Apple will announce a hardware product at the event as that is usually reserved for the September event when the company takes the stage to announce the new iPhones.
Tickets will be offered by random selection for $1,599. Ticket lottery registration opens Monday, March 27 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. Those that plan on registering must be a member of the Apple Developer Program or Apple Developer Enterprise Program as of February 16 at 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time.
The company will live stream the keynote as well as conference sessions for developers who are not able to make it to the event in person.
